Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 17, 2018

ClaytonKershaw

Mark J. Terril – AP

I guess Clayton Kershaw is getting sick of the “Kershaw can’t pitch in October” narrative. He was great in the Division Series, not so great in his first outing in the NLCS. But look at what we’ve got here!

Kershaw pitched like an ace, 7 innings, 3 hits, 1 run and 9 strikeouts, putting the Dodgers on the brink of their second straight World Series and a date with the lone hole in his Hall of Fame resume.

Meanwhile Andrew Benintendi should have been credited with the save with an all time brilliant catch with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th to put the Red Sox up 3-1 over Houston.

So 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 17, 2018

NLCS Game 5:

ALCS Game 4:

Receiving 1 WOO

Andrew Benintendi doubled twice, scored twice and made a game saving catch with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th to seal the Red Sox heart stopping 8-6 victory over Houston.

Ryan Brasier got 5 key outs from the bullpen, allowing no runs and helped Boston beat Houston, 8-6.

Clayton Kershaw dominated Milwaukee, striking out 9 in 7 innings and earning the 5-2 victory for Los Angeles.

Justin Turner reached base 3 times, driving in a run and scoring another to help the Dodgers beat the Brewers, 5-2.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Lorenzo Cain singled, doubled and drove in a run, but the Brewers fell short against the Dodgers, 5-2.

George Springer reached base 4 times, including a homer, but the Astros lost a dramatic 8-6 game to the Red Sox.

Brandon Woodruff came out of the bullpen in the first and threw 5 1/3 innings, striking out 8 Dodgers and allowing 2 earned runs and 1 unearned run. But he took the hard luck 5-2 loss for Milwaukee.

I am not going to lie to you. I still am not sure I am pronouncing Jhoulys correctly. But man, he gave the Brewers what they needed.

I DO know how to pronounce Orlando and Arcia. And put those names together and suddenly the Brewers are halfway to the World Series.

So 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.

Orlando Arcia lifted a 2 run homer to put the game away as the Brewers blanked the Dodgers, 4-0.

Jhoulys Chacín threw 5 1/3 shutout innings, striking out 6 Dodgers, and earned the 4-0 decision for Milwaukee.

 

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Walker Buehler threw 7 strong innings, striking out 8 Brewers, but he also let up a back breaking homer that sealed the Dodgers 4-0 loss.

Manny Machado reached base 3 times including a double in a 9th inning rally that failed to cash in for the Dodgers who dropped the 4-0 game to the Brewers.

Retroactively Awarding Division Series MVPs from 1995 to 2018

moreKersh

Jayne Kamin-Oncea, USA TODAY Sports

The Division Series are now all complete. But before we move on to the ALCS or NLCS, why not award an MVP for the Division Series.

I can not understand why there is no MVP awarded to the top performer of the Division Series.

It is a post season series that will be the highlight of the year for the 2 teams that lose the League Championship Series. Sure the series could be over in 3 games. But when the ALCS and NLCS was best of 5, they awarded an MVP for THOSE series.

This has been a tradition on the Sully Baseball blog to award each season’s Division Series MVP. And I also list the past MVPs dating back to the first year the Division Series became an annual event.

And this listing also includes the MVPs for the 1981 Divisional Playoffs as well. Why not?

And now there are four new Division Series MVPs, whose post season heroics will NOT go unnoticed here!

THE DIVISION SERIES MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS OVER THE YEARS
2018
American League
JDMART
Martinez homered in the first inning of Game 1, setting a tone for the series. He would finish batting .357 with a .992 OPS, driving in 6 runs in the 4 game victory of the Red Sox over the Yankees.
bregg
In the Astros three game sweep of the Indians, Bregman’s numbers stood out. He batted .556, slugged .1333 with an eye popping 2.048 OPS, homering twice and driving in 4.
National League
mous
Moustakas batted .364 with a .916 OPS, driving in a pair including a walk off hit in the opener, and playing great defense as the Brewers made quick work of Colorado in a three game sweep.
kershaw
In an age of short outings for starting pitchers, Kershaw had an old school ace performance. He threw 8 shutout innings, allowing 2 hits and walking none, silencing the Braves attack and setting up the Dodgers 4 game Division Series victory.

Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 8, 2018

(Boston Herald Staff photo by Christopher Evans)

Brock Holt hit for the cycle and wasn’t even the star of their game! Nathan Eovaldi became the ace of the post season and it is safe to say the Red Sox not only owned October but owned the Yankees.

Meanwhile the Astros and Dodgers advanced with final scores that were more lopsided than the games indicated.

So 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 7

National League Division Series Game 4
American League Division Series Game 3:

Receiving 1 WOO

Pedro Baez threw 1 1/3 key shutout innings, preventing the Braves from rallying and preserved the lead for the Dodgers as they clinched the Division Series in a 6-2 Game 4.

Nathan Eovaldi dominated the Yankees over 7 innings, allowing 5 hits and 1 garbage time run, to earn the easy 16-1 decision for the Red Sox.

Brock Holt hit the first ever post season cycle, homering in the 9th of Boston’s 16-1 humiliation of the Yankees.

Manny Machado went 2 for 5, homered and drove in 4, as the Dodgers came from behind to top Atlanta 6-2 and advance to the NLCS.

Collin McHugh threw 2 no hit shutout innings, striking out 4 Indians and walking none to earn the 11-3 victory for Houston.

George Springer got 3 hits and 2 homers to lead the Astros in a late charge to eliminate the Indians with an 11-3 final.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Mike Clevinger struck out 9 Astros over 5 innings, holding the champs to a single run. But the Indians bullpen and defense betrayed him in the 11-3 elimination loss.

Francisco Lindor hit a go ahead homer and added another hit. But the Indians could not hold off the champion Astros, 11-3.

Kurt Suzuki hit a 2 run pinch hit single that briefly gave the Braves the lead. They could not hold the Dodgers, who rallied for a 6-2 win.

A POST SEASON CYCLE!

OK, so Brock Holt got his homer off of a position player pitching. But hey! A position player pitching in the post season is almost as rare as a player hitting for the cycle in a playoff game.

Holt’s second career cycle marks the biggest October ass kicking the Yankees ever experienced. This Red Sox fan will take it.

Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 7, 2018

Justin Edmonds – Getty Images

In 2014, Erik Kratz sat on the bench and did not get into a single game as the Royals played an Extra Inning Wild Card Game, 3 Division Series Games, 4 ALCS Games and a World Series that went the full 7.

Well, he made up for that yesterday, powering the Brewers into the NLCS.

Meanwhile Ronald Acuña, Jr. has powered life into the Braves after a slugfest with LA.

So 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 6

National League Division Series Game 3:

Receiving 1 WOO

Ronald Acuña, Jr. launched a game turning grand slam that helped the Braves stay alive against the Dodgers, 6-5.

Corbin Burnes threw a pair of shutout, hitless innings, striking out 2 Rockies and earned the 6-0 decision in relief for Milwaukee.

Erik Kratz went 3 for 4, scoring a run on a wild pitch, as he led the Brewers to a clean sweep of Colorado with a 6-0 final.

Arodys Vizcaino worked out of trouble in the 9th to strike out the side and save the Braves 6-5 win over the Dodgers.

 

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Trevor Story collected a pair of hits but could not be driven in as the Rockies were blanked 6-0 by the Brewers who swept the series.

Chris Taylor reached base twice, including a homer, knocking in 2, but the Dodgers came up just short in Atlanta, 6-5.

Sorry I missed a day of Who Owned October. I had to take care of something in the real world.

Naturally it was the day the Red Sox WON!

Meanwhile Gary Sanchez found his groove and Gerit Cole announced his presence with authority.

Martinez, Aaron Judge, Mike Moustakas, Alex Bregman, Manny Machado, Francisco Lindor, Justin Verlander, Jeremy Jeffress, Chris Sale, Ronald Acuña, Jr., Touki Toussaint, Chad Green, Tyler Anderson and Nolan Arenado all are credited.

Gary Sanchez homered twice, driving in 4 runs to make the difference for the Yankees 6-2 victory in Boston.

Masahiro Tanaka allowed 1 run over 6 innings before handing the lead over to the bullpen as the Yankees topped Boston, 6-2.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Xander Bogaerts homered in the Red Sox 6-2 loss to the Yankees.

Carlos Carrasco held the Astros scoreless for the first 5 innings. He would hand the lead over to the bullpen in the 6th but they could not hold it, dropping the 3-1 final for Cleveland.

Francisco Lindor homered to give the Indians their only run in a 3-1 loss to the Astros.

Joe Kelly kept the Red Sox in the game with 2 1/3 shutout innings, allowing 1 hit. But the damage was done in the Yankees 6-2 win.

Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 4, 2018

ryu

Allen J. Schaben / Los Angeles Times

Christian Yelich is still owning baseball even if it is October. He and Giancarlo Stanton have each homered in their first post season game. Little solace for Marlins fans.

Meanwhile Hyun-Jin Ryu has no time for Bull Penning and gave the Dodgers a good old fashioned solid playoff start.

So 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 4

National League Division Series Game 1:

Receiving 1 WOO

Max Muncy hit a 3 run homer and was walked 3 times to power the Dodgers past Atlanta, 5-0.

Hyun-Jin Ryu threw 7 shutout innings, striking out 8 Braves and walking none to earn the 5-0 win for the Dodgers.

Brandon Woodruff held the Rockies hitless over 3 shutout innings, striking out 3 and helped set up the Brewers 3-2 extra inning victory.

Christian Yelich reached base 4 times, including a 2 run homer that put Milwaukee on the board. The Rockies would tie the game in the 9th but the Brewers walked off 3-2 in the 10th.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Charlie Blackmon drove in the first run in the Rockies game tying 9th inning rally. The Brewers would come back to win, 3-2 in 10.

Freddie Freeman got one of the few hits off of Ryu and made a fine catch into the stands. But it was not enough as the Braves were blanked by the Dodgers, 5-0.

Sean Newcomb stopped the bleeding by coming out of the bullpen in the 3rd and throwing 2 shutout innings. The Braves were still shutout by Los Angeles, 5-0.

Antonio Senzatela performed well in his surprise start, working around a homer to hold the Brewers to 2 runs over 5 innings. He did not factor in the decision as the Rockies fell in 10, 3-2.

Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 3, 2018

106a505b29462932510325aa04c6b868

AP

This Wild Card Game wasn’t the thriller that the National League marathon was. But it was decisive win for the Yankees who still have visions of a World Series dancing in their heads.

Aaron Judge is the straw that stirs the Yankees drink… and boy did he stir it tonight!

So 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 3

American League Wild Card Game:

Receiving 1 WOO

Dellin Betances came out of the bullpen to throw 2 key shutout innings, striking out 3 Oakland batters, allowing no hits and no runs and earned the 7-2 decision for the Yankees.

Aaron Judge homered as the second Yankee batter of the game to give them a 2-0 lead. He would reach base 3 times altogether, adding a double and another run to beat Oakland, 7-2.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Khris Davis launched a 2 run homer to provide all of the A’s offense in the 7-2 Wild Card loss to the Yankees.

Lou Trivino stopped the bleeding with 3 innings of shutout ball, allowing a single hit and walk while striking out 4 Yankees. It was too little too late as Oakland lost the Wild Card Game, 7-2.

As Vin Scully would say, not a bad opening act for the post season. Tony Wolters becomes the hero and demonstrates why baseball is so wonderful in creating unlikely immortals.

Meanwhile Cub fans will take comfort that hurtful losses like this no longer have the baggage of the Cursed Days of the team.

Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 2, 2018

 

Wild Card Game - Colorado Rockies v Chicago Cubs

(Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)

Not a bad way to start the playoffs, eh? A 13 inning marathon whose great starting pitching was regulated to footnote as one of the most unlikely of players became an October hero.

I almost gave the WOO to Trevor Story, who got 3 hits and scored the eventual winning run. But honoring Wolters was too great to pass up.

So 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 2

National League Wild Card Game:

Receiving 1 WOO

Kyle Freeland threw a shutout into the 7th, finishing with 6 2/3 innings, no runs and struck out 6 Cubs. He did not get the decision but the Rockies held on to win 2-1.

Tony Wolters did not start the game but delivered the 2 out 13th inning RBI single that put the Rockies up for good as they topped the Cubs, 2-1.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Javier Baez smacked a double that tied the Wild Game at 1 in the 8th inning. The Cubs would go on to drop the 2-1 final to Colorado.

Jon Lester kept the damage to a minimum after a 1 run first inning. He settled down struck out 9 Rockies in 6 innings and did not get the decision in the Cubs 2-1 extra inning loss.

Who Owns October? A Metric For The 2018 Post Season

ct-cubs-rockies-nl-wild-card-photos-20181002

Brian Cassella / Chicago Tribune

A few years ago, one of my most loyal listeners, Daryl Spitzer, posted this Tweet.

 

It worked in 2013 and each year since then and it will work again this year.

So it is “Who Owns October?” or “WOO.”

And here is how it works.

Each winning team of a post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter awarded a “WOO.”

The losing teams can get a pitcher and hitter to get 1/2 a “WOO” if they stood out in a losing cause. They will be awarded at MY discretion.

Why do I get that kind of power? Because it is MY stat.

So we will see at the end of the World Series who has piled up enough full or half WOO’s to claim October as their own.

Keep checking in and I will get the tally up to date tonight and update it after every playoff game.

There is no reason to yell WOO! after each game.

Who Owned Baseball – THE FINAL REGULAR SEASON TALLY FOR 2018

Well that is it for the regular season. Two down to the wire races for the top pitching spots, one player came from behind to take a hitter’s position and the best player in baseball took control early and never let go.

So Who Owned Baseball in 2018?

AMERICAN LEAGUE HITTER 

MIKE TROUT finished with 10 1/2 WOB, finishing ahead of Mookie Betts with 8 and Francisco Lindor with 7.

NATIONAL LEAGUE HITTER

JAVIER BAEZ ended the year at 8 1/2, leap frogging Scooter Gennett at 7 1/2 and Bryce Harper’s 6 1/2. Christian Yelich reached 6 1/2 with his late season surge.

AMERICAN LEAGUE PITCHER

JUSTIN VERLANDER edged out Corey Kluber by a count of 10 1/2 to 10. Carlos Carasco was right behind them at 9. Chris Sale led the league for most of the season but injuries slowed him down and he finished tied for 4th with José Berríos at 8.

NATIONAL LEAGUE PITCHER

MAX SCHERZER took advantage of the full WOB and 1/2 WOB rules and edged Jacob deGrom, 12 1/2 to 12. Aaron Nola was third with 10.
