Is there a fan base whose fans are more loyal and shown more dedication than the Miami Marlins? I don’t think so. They suffer and get no sympathy… in fact their very existence is questioned.

That plus I look at the new statue to Jackie Robinson at the Rose Bowl in this Episode of Sully Baseball.

Game 5 of the 2017 World Series was absolutely bonkers. It was a chain reaction of dramatic moments that happened last night and banal events from a few nights before that all added up to be the sum total that was the game.

I give Clayton Kershaw a break, criticize the Dodgers and hope that the series goes 7 to become an all time classic.

Who Owns October (#WOO) and Who Owns the World Series (#WOWS) Tallies Updated For October 28, 2017

Well… we know there will be at least a Game 6.

Future baseball fans will casually look at the 6-2 final and think it wasn’t much of a game. But keeping in mind one starter had a no hitter into the 6th and the other starter was actually BETTER shows how tight this game was.

The World Series is knotted up. It will go into Halloween. And unless you are a Houston or San Francisco fan, that is not a good thing.

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 28
2017 World Series Game 4:

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

 

Cody Bellinger broke out of his slump with a pair of doubles, including a go ahead RBI hit in the 9th as the Dodgers tied the World Series with a 6-2 victory in Houston.

Alex Wood no hit the Astros for 5 2/3 innings before allowing a go ahead homer. He might not have received a decision but he set up the 6-2 Dodger win.

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

 

Alex Bregman made several sparkling defensive plays, cutting down a runner at the plate when the game was scoreless, and added a 9th inning homer in the Astros 6-2 loss to the Dodgers.

Charlie Morton retired 14 straight batters, finishing with 6 1/3 innings, 7 strikeouts, 3 hits and no walks. The Astros bullpen would collapse and Los Angeles took the 6-2 final.

My my my. The Houston Astros have thrown away all traditional use of the bullpen closer and now they are 2 wins away from winning the World Series.

Quite a change of events from being behind in the 9th inning and facing Kenley Jansen on the mound in Game 2.

So who owned October and the World Series?

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.)

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.

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.

Wally Skalij / Los Angeles Times

So 40 years and a day after Reggie Jackson sunk the Dodgers with 3 homers, Enrique Hernandez picked the Dodgers on his back with 3 homers of his own.

The Dodgers are World Series bound and it wasn’t even close tonight. The player known as Kiki etched his name into Dodger lore and Clayton Kershaw is now 4 team wins away from erasing any doubt of his Cooperstown legacy.

Meanwhile the Cubs… well, they showed just how hard it is to repear.

So who owned October?

Enrique Hernandez tied single game post season records with 3 homers and 7 RBI, including a grand slam, to mash the Dodgers into the World Series with an 11-1 drubbing of the Champion Cubs.

Clayton Kershaw threw 6 strong innings, allowing 3 hits and 1 run, striking out 5 Cubs to earn the 11-1 decision for the pennant winning Dodgers.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Kris Bryant homered to provide all the Cubs offense as they were hammered by the Dodgers, 11-1.

Brian Duensing was the only Cubs pitcher to prevent the Dodgers from scoring, tossing a pair of shutout innings as the defending champs saw their reign end in an 11-1 blowout.

Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 18, 2017

Ohhhh boy. This classic Yankee hater is bracing for a Bronx Pennant which I was NOT prepared for this year.

But Gary Sanchez and company are making it a magical fall for a team that has upset one 100 win team and on the verge of beating another one.

Meanwhile the defending Champs are alive for another day… now here comes Kershaw.

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.

Yuri Gurriel doubled to give the Astros their lone offensive highlight as they were blanked 5-0 by the Yankees.

Justin Turner reached base 4 times and homered in the Dodgers 3-2 loss to the Cubs.

Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 17, 2017

Nuccio DiNuzzo / Chicago Tribune

If the Astros bullpen did not have an epic meltdown, we might have a pair of clinchers tomorrow.

Instead the Yankees are VERY much in it and Houston should be a little nervous.

Meanwhile the Cubs dreams of a repeat could be over in less than 24 hours and the Dodgers post season remains perfect. Remind me about September momentum again?

So who owned October?

Receiving 1 WOO

Yu Darvish struck out 7 Cubs in 6 1/3 innings, allowing 1 run to get the 6-1 win for the Dodgers.

Sonny Gray allowed 1 hit, 1 earned run and 1 unearned run over 5 plus strong innings. He did not get the decision but helped set up the Yankees 6-4 victory against the Astros.

Aaron Judge  put the Yankees on the board with a 7th inning homer and then tied the game with an 8th inning RBI double. He would score on the go ahead double to complete the Yankees 6-4 comeback over Houston.

Chris Taylor homered and tripled, driving in 2, to lead the Dodgers past the Cubs, 6-1.

 

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Yuli Gurriel smacked a 3 run double that looked like it put the Astros up for good. But the Yankees came back for a 6-4 win.

Lance McCullers Jr. dominated the Yankees over 6 shutout innings, allowing 1 hit. He gave up a homer in the 7th and gave way to the Houston bullpen who melted down and gave up the 6-4 final.

Kyle Schwarber homered, walked and threw a runner out at second but the Cubs were no match for the Dodgers and fell 6-1.

Two of the biggest Yankees in terms of their physical bodies came up big in Game 3.

Sabathia’s arm and Judge’s bat and glove have made this a series. And here I was hoping the Astros could clinch tomorrow afternoon.

Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 12, 2017

jose_altuve1

N.Y. Post: Charles Wenzelberg

So we are now living in a world where the YANKEES are the plucky Underdog, trying to upset the 100 win Indians and Astros.

That’s strange. And Jose Altuve is having nothing of it. He is turning the 2017 post season into his own personal legend building tour.

Think of this. Between the Division Series and ALCS, Altuve is batting .579 with an OPS of 1.705. If he slugs Houston to a title and continues to put up 200 hit seasons throughout his career, he would have the Hall of Fame resume that only requires piling up stats.

In other words, we may be watching a legend being born. Pay attention.

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.

A complete description of the rules can be found HERE.

From October 12

2017 National League Division Series Game 5:

Receiving 1 WOO

Jose Altuve kept on hitting. He went 3 for 4, stole a base and scored the first run to help Houston edge the Yankees, 2-1.

Dallas Keuchel shut down the strong New York lineup with 7 innings of shutout ball, striking out 10 and earning the 2-1 decision for the Astros.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Greg Bird got two hits and broke up the shutout with a 9th inning homer that was not enough as the Yankees fell to the Astros, 2-1.

Masahiro Tanaka held the Astros to 4 hits and 2 runs over 6 solid innings but he absorbed the hard luck 2-1 Yankee loss.

We live in a world where the Yankees played the Indians… one team was a group of scrappy new comers and the other was the World Series bound super power… and the scrappy new comers won. And the roles are reversed. Didi Gregorius homered twice off of Corey Kluber and one of the great upsets in recent playoff history was complete.

Meanwhile Stephen Strasburg has his critics and guess what? HE ANSWERED THEM!

Well… we have at least ONE more day where all of the playoff series are alive. At least ONE more day where we will have four playoff games within 24 hours. The Red Sox, who looked dead from the neck up and down 3-0 before they even came to bat, woke up and clobbered Houston.

Meanwhile the Yankees bats were silent but Joe Girardi couldn’t find a way to bungle THIS one run game.

The Dodgers scored as many runs before a single batter was retired as the Red Sox have in 2 whole games. Stephen Strasburg went from throwing a memorable masterpiece to a heartbreaking loss and Joe Girardi made one of the great managerial blunders in post season

Gary Sanchez hit a startling 2 run homer off of Kluber in the first inning and added another hit. But the Yankees had an equally shocking meltdown and fell in 13 innings to the Indians, 9-8.

Stephen Strasburg took a no hitter into the 6th and allowed just 2 unearned runs and 3 hits over 7 innings, striking out 10 Cubs along the way. He would be charged with the hard luck 3-0 decision for the Nationals.

Christian Vazquez reached base 3 times and scored but the Red Sox were once again pounded by Houston, 8-2.

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

MLB Network

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.

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.

Man, it has been a rough post season for starting pitchers so far. EVERYONE’S bats are on fire. Hell, even an Arizona RELIEVER got an RBI triple tonight.

It was a wild game but Arizona held on and sadly the prospect of a World Series played in Denver and Minnesota will have to wait another year.

Well… for 1/2 an inning, everything looked perfect for Minnesota, didn’t it? Then they were out scored 8-1 after that 3 run uprising. It was fun while it lasted for Twins fans and no doubt they will be back as contenders.

But last night was about the Yankees power and their tremendously deep bullpen. The playoffs have begun.
