Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 18, 2018

price

Bob Levey/Getty Images

A former Cy Young Award winner who used to pitch for the Tigers came up huge today. It just was not the one everyone was expecting.

David Price is finally a post season winner, Rafael Devers powered the Sox and the Red Sox are World Series bound.

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 18, 2018

ALCS Game 5:

Receiving 1 WOO

Rafael Devers broke the Astros back with a 3 run homer that led the Red Sox to a pennant winning 4-1 victory.

David Price finally won a post season start, throwing 6 shutout frames, striking out 9 Astros as the Red Sox clinched the game and the series, 4-1.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Marwin Gonzalez homered to provide the lone offensive highlight for the Astros in their 4-1 loss to Boston.

Justin Verlander was solid through 5 innings but allowed a 3 run homer in the 6th and the Astros were eliminated by Boston, 4-1.

Well look at what we’ve got here! An ALCS!

The Brewers lost yesterday and the Astros lost today, so nobody is going to have a perfect October, thanks to a funky 2 out wall ball by Jackie Bradley Jr.

Now let’s see if the Red Sox can avoid walking batters when the series heads to 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 14, 2018

Matt Barnes threw 1 1/3 shutout hitless innings to hold the Houston attack at bay and earn the 7-5 decision for Boston.

Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a dramatic 2 out, 3 run double to put the Red Sox up for good in their 7-5 win over Houston.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

George Springer doubled twice, driving in 2 and scoring another but the Astros fell short in Boston, 7-5.

Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 9, 2018

Christopher Evans – Boston Herald

The Red Sox do well in years that end in “18.” And for the second time in 2 weeks, they popped champagne in the Bronx.

Not too shabby.

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 9

American League Division Series Game 4:

Receiving 1 WOO

Eduardo Nunez collected 2 hits, drove in a run and made the series clinching defensive play for the Red Sox, 4-3 over the Yankees.

Rick Porcello held the Yankees to 4 hits, no walks and 1 run over 5 strong innings to earn the 4-3 decision for Boston’s Division Series clincher.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Didi Gregorius went 2 for 4, drove in a run and kept the Yankees’ 9th inning rally alive with a single but they fell just short to the Red Sox, 4-3.

David Robertson shut down the mighty Boston attack with 1 2/3 innings of no hit shutout ball, striking out 4. It was too little too late as the Yankees were eliminated in the 4-3 Game 4 final.

This is my favorite part of the year as a baseball fan. It is like Christmas morning every day. Which is one reason it is so frustrating that the Red Sox have decided to coddle domestic abuser Steven Wright and make this month a whole lot less fun.

There is a realistic scenario for a series of one game, winner take all playoff games this October featuring teams that have a legitimate shot to win the NL Pennant. That is a cool thing.

Meanwhile, the Red Sox have a shot to have their best regular season ever, which would be great even if they don’t win the World Series.

Even when the Red Sox lose, they are interesting.

Seems tough to hit for the cycle in a losing cause. The Red Sox winning streak might be over, but don’t blame Mookie Betts, who homered to complete the cycle in the 9th.

His MVP case is getting more and more compelling while the Red Sox hope to start winning again in Baltimore.

But after some reflection, I think it has some merit.

Sully Baseball Podcast – Why I’ve stopped following the Red Sox this year – May 17, 2018

13501923_10155003796444937_7090837957169977509_n

I’ve been a Red Sox fan my whole life. Even when we moved and there was no internet, I still followed them day in and day out.

They are the great sports passion of my life.

But when the Red Sox brought back domestic abuser Steven Wright to the team, it put a knot in my stomach.

I took the Cubs and Yankees to task for signing Aroldis Chapman and the Mets for signing Jose Reyes.

Could I take a similar stance for my beloved Red Sox?

It became clear to me that I had to stop following the team as long as he was on the squad.

Baseball punished Robinson Cano for 1/2 a season for PEDs and Steven Wright 15 days for domestic violence.

Something is wrong there and I do not need to support it. I will be watching a LOT of baseball… just not the Red Sox until Wright is gone.

Doing what is right in this episode of Sully Baseball.

Several teams have come out of the gate strong, winning games and making an early statement. The Giants are winning games without Bumgarner, the Mets and Pirates are creating a nice foundation and the Red Sox have won a week’s worth of games in a row.

Sully Baseball Podcast – Demons Purged and Waiting to be Purged – March 19, 2018

It is Clayton Kershaw’s birthday. It may be unfair that some of his post season failures hang over his head, but baseball isn’t always fair.

Meanwhile it is the 100th anniversary of the Red Sox 1918 World Series title. I can not tell you how wonderful it is to never think about that year again as a Red Sox fan.

In my sleep, I saw a clear and specific vision regarding Game 7 of the yet to be played 2018 World Series. Was it a prophecy? Was it a dream? Should I play PowerBall?

Sully Baseball Podcast – At the Angels original home, being positive about the Red Sox – February 15, 2018

I visited Gilbert Lindsay Park, the site of Los Angeles Wrigley Field, the original home of the Angels. While there, I expressed my enthusiasm about the Red Sox, a team whose fan base seems to be indifferent about.

Let’s be positive on this episode of Sully Baseball.

MLB Master Doubleheader Schedule For 2018

AT &T Park in San Francisco and O.co Coliseum in Oakland are part of this year’s first doubleheader opportunity available by ground in 2018. The Bay Area usually holds 3 – 4 doubleheader chances a year to attend full games in both parks.

Each year we write the full doubleheader master schedule to see all games you can in one year (within reasonable driving or ground distance to cover, if not see all of both games). 

This season is no different, although this amount of contests is rapidly dwindling each campaign with staggered start times for a lot of clubs (in particular in April and on Saturdays), coupled with the time per game increasing, it makes it tougher than ever to watch 2 full games at venues.

We will add much more to this list as the year goes on, and definitely one thing to watch for is the ESPN Sunday Night Games TBD’s as the summer progresses. 

Like Ernie Banks once said “Let’s Play 2.”

Sully Baseball Podcast – Wanting a World Series in Minnesota and Denver and other thoughts – October 1, 2017

Snow

CBS Minnesota

The regular season ends today. Brewers fans got some heart break last night but hope for the future. Red Sox fans should be elated. Angels fans should be angry.

And I for one am hoping that the World Series is played in the freezing cold of Denver and Minneapolis.

Sully Baseball Podcast – Cooler Adrian Gonzalez and Media Bias for Cy Youngs – September 22, 2017

There are at least 4 and maybe as many as 7 managerial openings in baseball at Bad things happen to teams when Adrian Gonzalez is on the active roster. Not saying he is the cause. Just making an observation.

Meanwhile Ken Gura ( @kengura463inCLE on Twitter ) has some thoughts on media bias.

Sorry buddy but facts might not back that up.

Sully Baseball Podcast – The Red Sox should NOT covet Giancarlo Stanton plus Remembering 1985 Cardinals – August 23, 2017

Giancarlo Stanton is having an unbelievable season playing for the Miami Marlins. Should the Red Sox try to trade for him?

HELL NO!!!

Would YOU sign an injury prone player in his late 20’s to an 11 year contract? At the cost of one of your core players?

I hope not.

That plus I call for the name to be changed for Yawkey Way and I figure out which Cardinals team should have won.

Classic Matchups – Milwaukee vs. Boston on May 31, 1980

The Milwaukee Brewers played in the American League East division from 1972-93. In 2017, the Brewers will play many of their old foes from the East in Interleague matchups.  Baltimore, Boston, Toronto, and the New York Yankees are all on the schedule this season.  To celebrate the glory days of the old AL East, I’ve created a “classic opponents” series of blog posts.  I’ll be covering great games, opposing teams, and even individual players from the East, particularly from Milwaukee’s golden baseball era of 1978-82.

Boston was a formidable opponent of those classic Brewers teams, with an impressive roster of their own.  Both teams had some memorable battles, including a couple of games in 1980 where the Brewers exploded for a truckload of runs.

The Matchup

Both Boston and Milwaukee were chasing New York when they met at Fenway Park on the afternoon of Saturday, May 31, 1980
