Look at that! There will be no sweep in the NLCS. In fact there is no guarantee that there will be even another game in Wrigley if the Dodgers win all their home games. That would be… home field advantage!

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 16th.
NLCS Game 2:

Receiving 1 WOO’s 

Adrian Gonzalez got on base twice and hit a solo homer that was the only run of the game as the Dodgers blanked the Cubs, 1-0.

Clayton Kershaw threw 7 innings of shutout ball, wiggling out of trouble in the 7th and finishing with 2 hits, 1 walk and earned the razor thin 1-0 for the Dodgers over the Cubs.

Receiving 1/2 WOO’s 

Javier Baez broke up the Kershaw no hitter and made some strong defensive plays in the field in the Cubs 1-0 loss to the Dodgers.

Kyle Hendricks pitched into the 6th, allowing 1 run over 5 1/3 innings, and took the hard luck Cubs 1-0 defeat to the Dodgers.

Wally Skalij / Los Angeles Times

An all time classic played today in a postseason that has had very few duds.

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 13th.
NL Division Series Game 5:

Receiving 1 WOO’s 

 

Kenley Jansen entered the game in the 7th with nobody out and the Nationals rallying. He stopped the momentum and threw a career high 51 pitched over 2 1/3 tense innings to help preserve the 4-3 Los Angeles win.

Joc Pederson reached base 3 times and launched a game tying homer in the 7th that helped turn the deciding Game 5 around for the Dodgers as they topped Washington, 4-3.

Receiving 1/2 WOO’s 

Daniel Murphy reached base 3 times and scored. But he popped up in a critical moment in the 9th and could not push the Nationals over the top as they fell short to Los Angeles, 4-3.

Max Scherzer was brilliant over 6 shutout innings, allowing 4 hits and striking out 7. But he let up a game tying homer in the 7th and was pulled, leading to a disastrous 4-3 finish for the Nationals against the Dodgers.

Current ‘WOO’ Totals MLB 2016:

I decided to watch Game 1 of the Division Series between the Red Sox and Indians at The Dutch Goose in Menlo Park, California.

There I saw the reverse of the Tyranny of the Save, hated pinch running and met a guy from Massachusetts named Bill.
