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.

Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 13, 2018

TURRRRNER

So I guess the Brewers CAN a lose a game! That isn’t much solace for the Cubs who could have used one more Milwaukee loss for a Division Title!

Justin Turner has a thing for Game 2 of the NLCS. But his blast has made sure we have a competitive series now.

Meanwhile, the beat goes on for the Astros who took advantage of wild Boston pitching to strike the first blow of the ALCS.

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 13

NLCS Game 2

ALCS Game 1:

Receiving 1 WOO

Alex Bregman reached base 4 times, scored twice and made several terrific defensive plays to shut down the Red Sox attack and push the Astros to a 7-2 victory.

Kenley Jansen slammed the door on the Brewers with a scoreless ninth, retiring Yelich with 2 outs and the tying run on, earning the save for the Dodgers 4-3 victory.

Justin Turner got a pair of hits including a dramatic come from behind 2 run homer to lead the Dodgers past Milwaukee, 4-3.

Justin Verlander had one bad inning but dominated the Red Sox for the other 5, allowing 2 hits and 2 runs and striking out 6 to earn the 7-2 decision for Houston.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Orlando Arcia broke a scoreless tie with a homer. The Brewers fell just short to the Dodgers, 4-3.

Matt Barnes kept the Red Sox in the game with 1 1/3 hitless shutout innings, but the Astros piled on late to win, 7-2.

Steve Pearce got one of the Red Sox three hits and scored one of their two runs in Houston’s 7-2 victory.

Wade Miley threw 5 2/3 shutout innings, walking none and striking out 3 Dodgers. He even got a pair of hits and scored a run. But Milwaukee’s bullpen had a rare off day and blew the game, 4-3.

Sorry I missed a day of Who Owned October. I had to take care of something in the real world.

Naturally it was the day the Red Sox WON!

Meanwhile Gary Sanchez found his groove and Gerit Cole announced his presence with authority.

This entry will reflect in the standings both days. That means Clayton Kershaw, J. D. Martinez, Aaron Judge, Mike Moustakas, Alex Bregman, Manny Machado, Francisco Lindor, Justin Verlander, Jeremy Jeffress, Chris Sale, Ronald Acuña, Jr., Touki Toussaint, Chad Green, Tyler Anderson and Nolan Arenado all are credited.

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.

Truth is, Verlander just dominates the Yankees. Earlier in the season he went 8 strong innings before getting pulled and then we saw Ken Giles give up a long ball and punch himself in the head. Verlander’s only downside is that it’s at Yankee Stadium. He could be golden for 6+ innings at 8+ strikeouts.

It’s not that I like Junis as a pitcher, it’s that this Memorial Day there aren’t that many pitchers that have plus matchups that could help your roster by saving money and allowing you to get some more bats in there.

I still hate the fact that he cut his hair. Did he give it to a charity? I hope so. Baseball-wise he has a matchup against the Braves that he has held down in the past. Couple that with the injury to Acuna, if New York can put up some runs on the board, I like deGrom’s chances at the W.

The Most Recent No Hitter For Each Franchise (Updated for Combined Dodger No Hitter)

COMBINEDNONO

Orlando Ramirez / USA TODAY Sports – SNLA

Now THAT was a show for the folks of Monterrey Mexico!

In a game that was drenched in rain, the fans who braved the weather were treated to a combined no hitter. Walker Buehler took the first six. Tony Cingrani, Yimi Garcia and Adam Liberatore each threw a no hit inning and an unlikely group of arms etched their names into Dodgers history.

They knocked a more likely name off of this list… Clayton Kershaw.

Of course they did this against the Padres, still looking for their first No Hitter in Team History.

Now to update the list.

Springer, Verlander, Morton and Kershaw owned the World Series

wows

It may seem strange, seeing Clayton Kershaw on this list. But as it turned out, despite his disastrous Game 5, Clayton Kershaw was tied with the highest WOWS total for a pitcher in the 2017 World Series.

Sure George Springer makes sense. He hit 5 homers and took the World Series MVP trophy. Yeah Charlie Morton makes sense. He was dominant as a starter in Game 4 and pitched 4 brilliant innings out of the bullpen to clinch Game 7. And Justin Verlander pitched well enough to win both Games 2 and 6.

But Morton’s WOWs total was 1 1/2 because of the bullpen meltdown in Game 4. And Verlander took the hard luck loss in Game 6, which also made his WOWs total 1 1/2.

And Kershaw was brilliant in Game 1 and pitched 4 shutout innings in relief in Game 7, earning him a 1 1/2 total.

So while Kershaw continues to lick his wounds and listen to how he is a post season failure, in at least one metric, he was a solid contributor.

This October, Kershaw was 3-0 with a 3.82 ERA. That includes the homers he let up in his victory over the Diamondbacks and his 4th and 5th inning meltdowns in Game 5 of the World Series.

Remember he threw 7 innings, allowing 3 hits, 1 run, no walks and 11 strikeouts in Game 1, seemingly putting his post season woes to rest.

They will stick around another year, but maybe he had a better October than his Game 5 would let on.

Let’s look at the final tally.

Justin Verlander and Jose Altuve Owned October (Final #WOO Tally and Results)

Young-Houston-Astros-figure-to-be-force-into-future

Jim Ruymen – UPI

The World Series is over. The Houston Astros have their first ever title in franchise history. And it is appropriate that the two players with the highest WOO (Who Owns October) score would be heroes for Houston.

Mapping the entire post season, Justin Verlander won a game in the Division Series as a starter and another as a reliever over Boston, clinched the ALCS MVP by dominating the Yankees and pitched well in the World Series over the Dodgers.

Meanwhile Altuve homered 3 times in the opening game of the Division Series and finished the 4 game defeat of Boston with a .533 average and an OPS of 1.765. His slugging continued in the ALCS with 3 homers, a .974 OPS and big plays against the Yankees.

His stats in the World Series were not as robust but he still homered twice, including a dramatic 3 run game tying shot in the wild Game 5 victory and drove in 6 runs in the 7 game series.

While Verlander and Altuve got the highest totals, they were by no means the only October heroes.

Verlander’s 4 1/2 WOO total beat out Clayton Kershaw’s 3 1/2 and Kenley Jansen’s 3.

Altuve’s final of 4 barely beat Aaron Judge, who had 3 1/2 despite not even playing in the World Series. George Springer, who took the World Series MVP and Justin Turner, who had a huge post season, also had 3 1/2, barely behind Altuve’s total.

Looking back at the final tally is odd because it encompasses the entire post season. So yes, Trevor Story of the Rockies and Brian Dozier of the Twins are on there from their Wild Card Game losses. There are Yankee, Red Sox and Nationals players with a WOO total who saw their managers let go before the October tallies were done.

But in the end, Verlander and Altuve were good representatives of owning October. They certainly led Houston to the greatest baseball moment in the city’s history.

Who Owns October (#WOO) and Who Owns the World Series (#WOWS) Tallies Updated For October 31, 2017

IMG_0960

Fox Sports

Was there any doubt this game was going to go to a seventh game?

Actually, YES! When Verlander looked damn near unhittable through 5 innings, it looked like it might end with a 1-0 final following up a 13-12 slugfest.

Ah, such is baseball. Rich Hill might not be happy they pulled him early again! But a 7th game is up for grabs for anyone and if they win, the champagne will taste just as good for Mr. Hill

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 31
2017 World Series Game 6:

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

Kenley Jansen rebounded from several poor outings to give the Dodgers 6 critical outs, allowing no baserunners and striking out 3 Astros to save the 3-1 final.

Chris Taylor finally solved Verlander’s dominance with a game tying double that set up the go ahead rally as the Dodgers topped the Astros, 3-1.

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

George Springer reached base 3 times, including a homer that briefly gave the Astros the lead but the rest of the lineup was cold in the 3-1 loss to the Dodgers.

Justin Verlander dominated the Dodgers for the first 5 innings before allowing 2 in the 6th. They were enough to take the hard luck 3-1 loss for the Astros.

Who Owns October (#WOO) and Who Owns the World Series (#WOWS) Tallies Updated For October 25, 2017

Well, THAT game was bananas.

The Dodger bullpen was untouchable against Chicago. And look at this! They allowed a a run in the 8th, 9th, 2 in the 10th and 2 in the 11th.

Meanwhile the Dodgers kept tying it, Charlie Culberson thought his homer knotted it up and a pick off attempt that hit an umpire may have turned the tide of the World Series.

Like I said… bananas.

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.

George Springer reached base 4 times including a double and a go ahead 2 run homer in the 11th that put Houston up for good in the wild 7-6 game against Los Angeles.

Justin Verlander allowed 2 hits and struck out 5 over 6 strong innings. He did not factor in the decision but helped set up the Astros 7-6 win in 11 innings over the Dodgers.

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

Corey Seager hit a 2 run homer that briefly gave the Dodgers the lead. They would drop the game in 11 to Houston, 7-6.

Hey look at that! The Astros are back. After being shutout for the first 4 innings, Houston’s bats finally woke up. Verlander and Altuve did their thing and now we have a do or die Game 7.

You know the Dodgers are happy about these teams beating the tar out of each other.

Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 14, 2017

Well it is safe to say that Justin Verlander has worked out as a nice trade for Houston. Both he and Kershaw are former Cy Young winners trying to exorcise their October demons. One of them threw a complete game victory.

Meanwhile Carlos Correa and Yasiel Puig showed a flair for the dramatic, especially with homers that juuuuuuust cleared the wall.

Receiving 1 WOO

Carlos Correa drove in the Astros first run with a home run and ended the game with a walk off double in the 9th to top the Yankees, 2-1.

Kenley Jansen struck out all 4 batters he faced to close out the save as the Dodgers took game 1, 5-2, over the Cubs.

Yasiel Puig put the Dodgers on the board with an RBI double and added his first ever post season homer to seal the 5-2 victory over the Cubs.

Justin Verlander threw a dominating complete game, striking out 13 Yankees with only 1 walk to earn the 2-1 decision for Houston.

 

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Albert Almora Jr. hit a 2 run homer to give the Cubs an early lead. They could not hold it and fell short to the Dodgers, 5-2.

Todd Frazier hit a bizarre game tying double that got stuck in the fence. It wasn’t enough as the Yankees fell to the Astros, 2-1.

Tommy Kahnle was pressed into service early because of Severino’s injury. He responded with 2 innings of no hit shutout ball in the Yankees 2-1 loss to the Astros.

Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 5, 2017

Well… it is safe to say Jose Altuve is ready for the big stage. When you hit 3 homers in a game, you join names like Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, George Brett, Albert Pujols and Adrian Beltre for all time players to smash a trio of taters. (Oddly Adam Kennedy is also on that list.)

Chris Sale, the Red Sox best hope for a victory in the post season, pulled his best Clayton Kershaw in October impersonation, and that is no compliment.

Meanwhile Terry Francona held back his ace one day but got an ace like performance from the replacement starter. The Indians took Game 1 and have a rested and ready Corey Kluber for Game 2.

Good Luck Yankees.

Jose Altuve had a historic night at the plate, launching a trio of solo homers, as the Astros ran away with Game 1 against Boston, 8-2.

Trevor Bauer kept the Yankees hitless into the 6th and finished with 6 2/3 shutout innings, allowing 2 hits, 1 walk and 8 strikeouts to earn the 4-0 decision for the Indians.

Jay Bruce doubled and homered, driving in 3, to power the Indians past the Yankees, 4-0.

Justin Verlander worked out of trouble in 2 innings and finished with 6 innings and 2 runs to earn the 8-2 decision for the Astros over the Red Sox.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Starlin Castro got 2 of the Yankees 3 hits in their 4-0 defeat by Cleveland.

Jaime Garcia kept the Indians scoreless and hitless for 2 2/3 innings, striking out 3, but the Yankees were blanked 4-0.
