The Braves have gone from one of the teams of the decade to full rebuilding in a year and a half.

If they are going to rebuild, then they should blow the whole thing up.

Burn it all to the ground on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Right after the miraculous victory by the Red Sox in Game 2 of the 2013 ALCS, I recorded an impromptu episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

No prep. No notes. Just me and my dad sitting at the kitchen table, talking about the game.

David Ortiz and Koji Uehara got full WOOs last night.
Max Scherzer and Alex Avila got half WOOs.

Who Owns October? (WOO) Tally Updated For October 13, 2013 Games

Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOO.

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

For a full explanation, click HERE.

From today’s games:

Receiving 1 WOO:

David Ortiz hit what could have been the most dramatic home run of his career, which is saying something. With one swing of his bat, he turned a 5-1 8th inning hole with 2 outs into a 5-5 tie as his grand slam landed in the bullpen.

It was the first time in a playoff history that a grand slam was hit to tie the game in the 8th inning or later. It changed the tide of the series and set up the 9th inning walk off win for the Red Sox over Detroit.

After the Red Sox tied the game, they needed a shut down inning. They got that from Koji Uehara, who prevented the Tigers big sluggers from getting a chance to bat by tossing a 1-2-3 9th. He would be credited with the victory in Boston’s 6-5 walk off win over Detroit.

Receiving 1/2 WOO:

Alex Avila drove in a run in the second and launched a 2 run shot in the 6th that gave the Tigers a 5-0 lead that they could not hold against Boston.

Max Scherzer became the latest Tigers pitcher to flirt with a post season no hitter. He was remarkable over 7 innings, letting up just 2 hits, 1 run and striking out 13. His bullpen betrayed him and he had to settle for a no decision in the Red Sox stunning 6-5 win.

The Red Sox and Dodgers seriously hurt their chances to get into the World Series.

The Dodgers are panicking against the Cardinals while I nearly matched the Red Sox hit total.

There is an air of desperation of today’s Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

The link to my short scene, a dialogue between two Fox execs, can be found HERE.

Anibal Sanchez, Michael Wacha, David Freese and Jhonny Peralta all earned full WOO’s.

Jon Lester, Clayton Kershaw and Daniel Nava earned 1/2 WOO’s.

The Cardinals are a team of recent champs.

The A’s are a franchise of staggeringly close post season failures.

The difference between those two franchises is agonizingly slim and the topic for today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Also I reward the Division Series MVP

Justin Verlander and Miguel Cabrera earned a full WOO and Sonny Gray has a 1/2 WOO.

The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast today covers a wild full day of playoff baseball.

A near no hitter, a surreal near brawl, a walk off homer from a most unlikely source and a clinching game that defies description and showed one manager who panicked and another who probably should have.

Alex Cobb, Matt Holliday, Clayton Kershaw, Evan Longoria, Dan Otero, Seth Smith, Juan Uribe and Michael Wacha all earned full WOO’s.
Jose Alvarez, Pedro Alvarez, Jacoby Ellsbury, Freddy Garcia, Charlie Morton and Jhonny Peralta earned half WOO’s.

“Who Owns October?” An explanation for the newest “SullyMetric”

 (AP Photo/John Bazemore)

The season is over and so ends the tally of my regular season stat “Who Owns Baseball” or WOB. The explanation for that stat can be found HERE.

In a nutshell, I gave credit to a National League pitcher and hitter and an American League pitcher and hitter every night who deserved a special spotlight. Some times it went to obvious recipients. A no hitter or hitting for the cycle was a surefire way to be recognized.

But sometimes a great relief performance or a clutch hit that didn’t shine in the highlights would earn a WOB.

Well now it is October and the stakes are high and a new metric is needed.

I was originally going to call it “Who Owns The Playoffs?” but I am half Italian in my ancestry and could not endorse “WOP.”

A follower of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast named Daryl Spitzer (Twitter handle @yacitus) suggested “Who Owns October?”

Well that clinched it for me.

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.

We are talking about The Division Series on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast today.

The Pirates have a legit shot against the Cardinals if they can steal one of the first two games.

And we fellow Red Sox fans should be worried about the match up with the Rays.
