Who Owns October (#WOO) and Who Owns the World Series (#WOWS) Tallies Updated For October 29, 2017

MichaelCiaglo

Michael Ciaglo/Houston Chronicle

Um… what the heck just happened? Is the game still going on? Are any pitchers left? (I actually feel badly for Francisco Liriano who STILL hasn’t gotten into a game at this point!)

Too many hitters considered for owning October and the World Series! Almost NO pitcher is worthy of it.

There have been 2 wild out of our mind extra inning games this October. If ANY World Series deserves to go into November, it is THIS one!!!

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.

A complete description of the rules can be found HERE.

From October 29
2017 World Series Game 5:

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

 

Joe Musgrove was practically the only pitcher who did his job. He threw one scoreless inning and earned the 13-12 decision for the Astros over the Dodgers.

George Springer shone in a game with many offensive stars. He reached base 5 times, hitting a game tying homer, scoring 3 runs and reaching base in the winning 10th inning rally to lead the Astros to a hair raising 13-12 victory against the Dodgers.

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

Cody Bellinger reached base 3 times, including a triple and a homer, driving in 4, but somehow that wasn’t enough in the Dodgers heart breaking 13-12 loss to the Astros.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 8/18/16

P- Hisashi Iwakuma (vs. Los Angeles Angels): $9,300. Iwakuma has shown great career success against the Angels in over 150 plate appearances. The Angels offense is also struggling over the last week, which should help Iwakuma. Iwakuma has won three straight starts.

P- Joe Musgrove (vs. Los Angeles Angels): $7,000. Musgrove does a fantastic job of keeping the baseball in the ballpark. The Orioles’ bats have been ice cold and they only seem to score runs on home runs. Hopefully Musgrove can have another great start.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 8/12/16

P- Stephen Strasburg (vs. Atlanta Braves): $12,400. In two starts against Atlanta this year, Strasburg owns a 1.98 ERA. He is 15-2 on the year, with a 2.80 ERA, and 169 strikeouts. He is putting up a Cy Young caliber season and the Braves won’t stand in his way on Friday.

P- Joe Musgrove (vs. Toronto Blue Jays): $8,300. As many of my readers well know, I am quite a fan of Joe Musgrove. He is incredibly efficient on the mound, issues very few walks, and has an above average strikeout rate. Over the last seven games, the Blue Jays have struck out 70 times (4th worst in baseball) and have a .686 OPS (ranked 19th in baseball).

Midseason Top 100 MLB Prospect Rankings Analysis (41-50)

Below you can find my analysis for the prospects ranked between 41-50 for the 2016 midseason top prospect list. If you want to see the full top 100 list, please visit the following link: SEE THE TOP 100 PROSPECT RANKINGS. I will be posting daily analysis of every player listed in the top 100, so please follow my blog and other social media for updates.

 

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE ANALYSIS OF THE PROSPECTS RANKED 51-60

 

  1. Jason Groome (BOS, 17 Years Old, LHP): Well, this ranking won’t mean anything if the Red Sox don’t sign Groome after drafting him 12th overall in the 2016 MLB Draft. The Sox and Groome are still in negotiations, but nothing as been finalized yet. At only 17 years old, Groome is incredibly advanced on the mound. He throws a mid-90’s fastball from the left-side, which has great late movement. He also shows a great feel for his breaking ball and changeup. To go along with his great repertoire, Groome has showed great command for a kid his age. Many people expected Groome to go first overall in the draft, but he started to trend downwards due to maturity questions and sign-ability issues. If the Red Sox sign Groome, he has the upside of a frontline starter.
