Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 19, 2018

As the Red Sox kick their feet up, relaxing from their pennant clinching yesterday, the NLCS is down to a Game 7. I guess it is appropriate after the regular season ended with a pair of Game 163 match ups that the National League title is undecided until the last possible moment.

The Dodgers homered in the opening batter, making Milwaukee wonder if they were done. 4 runs in the first changed all of that.

So thanks to Jesús Aguilar and company, the National League will be decided on Saturday. And Corbin Burnes made sure Josh Hader is rested and ready for Game 7.

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 19, 2018

NLCS Game 6:

Receiving 1 WOO

 Jesús Aguilar reached base 4 times, including a pair of doubles, scoring twice and driving in 3 to lead the Brewers past the Dodgers, 7-2.

Corbin Burnes finished the 7-2 game with 2 perfect innings, striking out a pair of Dodgers and preserving the Milwaukee bullpen for Game 7.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

 David Freese led off the game with a homer and added a double in the Dodgers 7-2 loss in Milwaukee.

The Indians had a triumphant and surprising year in 2013.  They blasted their way out of the gate led by Mark Reynolds and Jason Kipnis and Justin Masterson.

Halfway through the year, renaissance pitching from Ubaldo Jimenez and Scott Kazmir helped jump into the foray among all the best AL clubs.

This club took advantage of a cupcake schedule – in order to reel off a 10 game winning streak to tend the campaign.

For those people who failed to see what a tough May.15 – June.15 schedule they had, in which they played almost all of the Division leaders across the board in the MLB, being all over .500 teams.

Because of that stretch, they deserved the late season ease of sked.

The Indians were one of the top franchises for organizational Drafts, signing players, making trades and having their core players locked up to long term contract during the 1990's. In the early part of the millennium, they traded several of these players for a new core of players.  This time, their return wasn't as significant.  The club prides itself on not making big mistakes on the Free Agent market and developing its own talent.  For the first time in 2 decades, the management is really under scrutiny for team operations
