Baseball For Lunch -Locked On MLB – May 23, 2019

C77EA6B4-C0DC-4237-AC0A-8CD0B4B855C6

There is a nearly full slate of games starting before noon, Pacific Daylight Time. Nothing is better than being a baseball fan on the west coast. I am going to be watching baseball for lunch!

The historically bad Marlins have almost caught the supposedly contending Nationals, and not because Miami has thoughts of winning the East.

The Yankees do not have a single player healthy on their squad and still can not lose. And Mike Minor somehow is a Cy Young Contender.

Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 14, 2018

alcs-astros-red-sox-baseball-3641d4821e0ceda9

Well look at what we’ve got here! An ALCS!

The Brewers lost yesterday and the Astros lost today, so nobody is going to have a perfect October, thanks to a funky 2 out wall ball by Jackie Bradley Jr.

Now let’s see if the Red Sox can avoid walking batters when the series heads to Houston.

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.

Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 9, 2018

Christopher Evans – Boston Herald

The Red Sox do well in years that end in “18.” And for the second time in 2 weeks, they popped champagne in the Bronx.

Not too shabby.

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.

This Wild Card Game wasn’t the thriller that the National League marathon was. But it was decisive win for the Yankees who still have visions of a World Series dancing in their heads.

Aaron Judge is the straw that stirs the Yankees drink… and boy did he stir it tonight!

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 3

American League Wild Card Game:

Receiving 1 WOO

Dellin Betances came out of the bullpen to throw 2 key shutout innings, striking out 3 Oakland batters, allowing no hits and no runs and earned the 7-2 decision for the Yankees.

Aaron Judge homered as the second Yankee batter of the game to give them a 2-0 lead. He would reach base 3 times altogether, adding a double and another run to beat Oakland, 7-2.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Khris Davis launched a 2 run homer to provide all of the A’s offense in the 7-2 Wild Card loss to the Yankees.

Lou Trivino stopped the bleeding with 3 innings of shutout ball, allowing a single hit and walk while striking out 4 Yankees. It was too little too late as Oakland lost the Wild Card Game, 7-2.
