img_7426It is Sunday and time for the Sunday Request.

I had issues with my washing machine and MLB Blackouts. At least the Red Sox were rained out.

It is a spin cycle episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast

Josh Donaldson, Roberto Osuna, Daniel Murphy, Mark Melancon, Rougned Odor and Justin Turner all added to their Who Owns October totals.

Who Owns October In MLB Playoffs 2016? (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 9, 2016

Josh Donaldson is the first 2 WOO player and Roberto Osuna is the first 2 WOO pitcher. Meanwhile Justin Turner has his own claim on October.

Time to see who owned October.

Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOO (Who Owns October.)

And at my discretion, I award a 1/2 WOO’S to a worthy player on the losing team.

At the end of the post season, we will see who had the highest WOO total as a pitcher and a hitter.

A complete description of the rules can be found HERE.

From October 8th.
NL Division Series Game 2 and AL Division Series Game 3:

Receiving 1 WOO’s 


Josh Donaldson doubled twice, singled, drove in a run and dashed home with the Division Series clinching run from second as Toronto finished the sweep of Texas in 10, 7-6.

Mark Melancon closed the 5-2 Nationals victory with a scoreless ninth, saving the game against the Dodgers.

Daniel Murphy reached base 4 times, scoring a run and driving in 2 to help the Nationals take game 2 of the Division Series over Los Angeles, 5-2.

Roberto Osuna threw a scoreless 9th and 10th to send Game 3 into extras and earned the 7-6 decision for Toronto over the Rangers.

Receiving 1/2 WOO’s 

Rougned Odor scored twice and hit a critical homer but the Rangers season came to an end with their 7-6 loss to Toronto in 10 innings.
Justin Turner got on base 4 times and scored a run but the Dodgers were topped by the Nationals, 5-2.

Don Larsen’s Perfect Game: Recalling the Pitching Gem On Its 60th Anniversary

Yesterday marked the 60th anniversary of one of baseball’s most cherished feats. On October 8th, 1956, New York Yankees starting pitcher Don Larsen threw the first and onlyperfect game in the history of the World Series (and playoffs). Not only is it one of the major gold standards in the sport, it also still captivates fans as much today as it did six decades ago.

The right-hander’s perfect came in Game 5 at Yankee Stadium against the Brooklyn Dodgers, giving the Bronx Bombers a 3-2 Series lead. They ultimately took the championship two days later in the 7th and deciding game. Here are some interesting facts about Larsen and his perfect game.
