Yasiel Puig has a tendency to talk a big game. But guess what? He backs it up. And with one swing of the bat he turned a potential Game 7 thriller into a foregone conclusion.
Meanwhile a parade of Dodger relievers kept the Brewers off of the scoreboard after Yelich’s first inning homer.
Dodgers are off to play the Red Sox. The Brewers came oh so close.
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 20, 2018
NLCS Game 7:
Receiving 1 WOO
Ryan Madson threw 1 2/3 clutch innings of shutout relief, allowing just 1 hit, striking out a pair of Brewers and earned the pennant clinching 5-1 decision for the Dodgers.
Yasiel Puig got 3 hits, including the back breaking 3 run shot, that put the game out of reach as the Dodgers clinched the pennant in Milwaukee, 5-1.
Receiving 1/2 WOO
Josh Hader kept the Dodgers off the board with 3 dominating shutout innings, striking out 4. It was too little too late as the Brewers lost, 5-1.
Christian Yelich homered in the first inning to send Milwaukee into a frenzy. It would short lived as the Dodgers rallied to clinch the pennant, 5-1.

- Orlando Arcia (MIL, 21 Years Old, SS): The smooth-fielding shortstop has struggled a little during the 2016 season, but his future remains bright. In 382 plate appearances at Triple-A, Arcia is batting .269, with seven home runs, 44 RBIs, 56 runs, 13 stolen bases, .325 OBP, and a .407 slugging percentage. He still profiles as an above average shortstop in the big leagues, but I’m not convinced he is going to be an elite fantasy baseball player. He has the ceiling to produce 15-20 stolen bases, .270 BA, 10-15 home runs, and a .340 OBP once he reaches the bigs. If he does put up those numbers, I retract my statement about his fantasy baseball value.
The Houston Astros Payroll in 2014 + Organization: Affiliates, Prospects + Depth Charts (MLB + MiLB)
A 3rd straight season with 105+ Losses, and 15 straight losses to finish the 2013 campaign does not give the fans very much to look forward to in 2014.
I am here to tell you that the MLB should be ashamed of letting the Houston Astros field such an incompetent team.
Having said this, I don’t personally blame them for tanking it over the last 3 years. They are the other ‘extreme’ – of what the New York Yankees and LA Dodgers have done payroll wise.
Last season at the end of the year, their highest paid player for the Active Roster was Erik Bedard, making $1.1 MIL.
If they keep picking 1st overall, it is only a matter of time before the team becomes very good, just like the Rays, Nationals, Twins and Pirates have all done in recent times.
