Who Owns October and Who Owns the 2018 World Series (#WOO and #WOWS) Tallies Updated For October 27, 2018

What do you do if you have a negative narrative about you in the post season? You come up big in the World Series and rewrite the narrative.

David Price’s postseason woes are over. Done. Kaput. You can’t bring them up again. He ELWAYED them. Now his legacy is beating Verlander for the pennant, Kershaw for the World Series and going deep in both games… you know, like an ace does.

I personally would have given him World Series MVP, but with Steve Pearce launching all of those homers, it was a tough call.

But not tough in terms of figuring out who owned the World Series and 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.

But the World Series deserves its own stats. WOWS (Who Owns the World Series.)

At the end of the post season, we will see who had the highest WOO total as a pitcher and a hitter. The WOWS total will be kept separately. Each game now counts towards both tallies.

A complete description of the rules can be found HERE.

From October 28
2018 World Series Game 8:

Receiving 1 WOO and 1 WOWS

Steve Pearce homered in the first inning to put the Red Sox up 2-0 and added another shot in the 8th to put the Dodgers away, earning World Series MVP honors after the 5-1 final.

David Price pitched into the 8th, allowing 3 hits, 1 run and striking out 5 Dodgers in 7 plus innings, earning the 5-1 World Series clinching decision for Boston.

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

David Freese homered on the first pitch of the bottom of the first and added a triple but the Dodgers could not hold off the Red Sox in the 5-1 clincher.

Clayton Kershaw kept the Dodgers in the game over 7 innings. But he let up 3 Boston homers along the way and the offense never woke up in the 5-1 loss.

Who Owns October and Who Owns the 2016 World Series (#WOO and #WOWS) Tallies Updated For October 27, 2018

Steve Pearce will never have to buy a drink in New England again

Between his pinch hit game tying homer in the 8th and the bases clearing insurance double in the 9th, Pearce took a game that looked like was going to knot up the Series to putting Boston on the brink of the title.

If Game 3 was as long as two games, Game 4 FELT like two different games. Part one was a tense pitcher’s duel. Part two was an offensive eruption.

You know a game is odd when it is 0-0 going into the bottom of the sixth, tied going into the 9th and a 2 run homer in the bottom of the 9th just gets a shrug.

Thus is the strange narrative of Game 4 of the 2018 World Series.

So who owned October and the World Series?

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.

But the World Series deserves its own stats. WOWS (Who Owns the World Series.)

At the end of the post season, we will see who had the highest WOO total as a pitcher and a hitter. The WOWS total will be kept separately. Each game now counts towards both tallies.

From October 27
2018 World Series Game 4:

Receiving 1 WOO and 1 WOWS

Steve Pearce hit a game tying home run in the 8th inning and then cleared the bases with a 9th inning double to lead the Red Sox in a dramatic 9-6 comeback victory over Los Angeles.

Eduardo Rodriguez pitched with no days rest and had a shutout with 1 out in the 6th inning. While he tired and let up 4 runs, his effort allowed Boston’s wiped out bullpen a chance to reset and win the 9-6 Game 4 final over the Dodgers.

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

Rich Hill dominated the Red Sox, taking a shutout into the 7th, allowing 1 hit, had one run charged to him because of the bullpen while striking out 7. But the Dodger bullpen had an absolute meltdown and turned a 4-0 LA lead into a 9-6 defeat.

Yasiel Puig launched a towering 3 run homer that gave the Dodgers a seemingly safe 4-0 lead in the 6th. The Red Sox would score 9 unanswered runs to take the game, 9-6.

Is Game 3 Over?

Will anyone be left standing for Game 4?

When Ernie Banks said “Let’s play two”, he meant it as a metaphor. The Dodgers and Red Sox played the equivalent of two and along the way showed how insane the concepts of “Win and Loss Decisions” are.

Walker Buehler pitched brilliantly, throwing 7 shutout innings. No decision.

Nathan Eovaldi threw one of the greatest relief performances in World Series history. Loss.

Alex Wood threw 1 inning out of 18. Victory.

Bananas. The Red Sox were a bad Ian Kinsler throw away from winning and taking a 3-0 series lead. Now they will be forced to start Drew Pomeranz and the Dodgers have images of tying the Series, 2-2 and giving the ball to Kershaw in Game 5.

And oh yeah, Max Muncy hit the first Dodger walk off homer in the World Series since Kirk Gibson’s shot in 1988. Maybe you have seen it.

So who owned October and the World Series?

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.

But the World Series deserves its own stats. WOWS (Who Owns the World Series.)

From October 26
2018 World Series Game 3:

Receiving 1 WOO and 1 WOWS

Walker Buehler was brilliant, throwing 7 shutout innings, holding the Red Sox to 2 hits, no walks and 7 strikeouts. The bullpen blew his lead but the Dodgers would win the 18 inning marathon, 3-2.

Max Muncy reached base 4 times and ended the 18 inning classic with a walk off homer to give the Dodgers a 3-2 victory over Boston.

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

 Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a 2 out game tying homer in the 8th that set in motion the never ending extra inning affair between the Dodgers and Red Sox. He would collect another hit and walk two more times but Boston fell in the 18th, 3-2.

Nathan Eovaldi put on one of the great relief performances in post season history, holding the Dodgers to 1 unearned run and 2 hits over 6 super high pressure innings. But he could not stretch it to 7 as he surrendered Muncy’s homer and took the brutally tough 3-2 loss for Boston in 18.

Who Owns October and Who Owns the 2016 World Series (#WOO and #WOWS) Tallies Updated For October 23, 2018

Bob DeChiara, USA TODAY Sports

Wasn’t that supposed to be a pitcher’s duel? Neither Sale nor Kershaw went 5 innings, despite a great first inning by Boston’s ace.

Instead, we had a back and forth offensive battle where Andrew Benintendi piled up the hits and Eduardo Núñez put the game away with one swing of the bat.

And remember when the Red Sox bullpen was a weakness? Not anymore. Los Angeles is now in a hole and need to figure out how to stop the Boston attack tomorrow.

So who owned October and the World Series?

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

Receiving 1 WOO and 1 WOWS

Andrew Benintendi made the most of his World Series debut. He went 4 for 5 with a bloop double, scored 3 and drove in another to lead Boston to an 8-4 beating of LA.

Joe Kelly came out of the bullpen and threw a critical shutout, hitless inning, striking out 2 Dodgers and holding the Boston lead the led to an 8-4 final.

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

 Manny Machado drove in 3 of the Dodgers 4 runs but it was not enough as Boston won, 8-4.
