Wandering outside the gates in Chavez Ravine in this Episode of Sully Baseball.

Who Owns October (#WOO) and Who Owns the World Series (#WOWS) Tallies Updated For October 27, 2017

Karen Warren/Houston Chronicle

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?

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 27
2017 World Series Game 3:

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

Yuli Gurriel got a pair of hits including a homer to spark the Astros to a 5-3 victory against the Dodgers.

Brad Peacock came out of the bullpen to throw 3 2/3 innings of no hit shutout ball to earn his first career Major League save, sealing Houston’s 5-3 win over the Dodgers.

 

Receiving 1/2 WOO and 1/2 WOWS

Kenta Maeda was pressed into action in the second inning. He responded with 2 2/3 shutout innings, allowing 1 hits and 1 walk while striking out a pair of Astros in the Dodgers 5-3 defeat.

Joc Pederson reached base twice, including a double, and scored in the Dodgers 5-3 loss to the Astros.

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?

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.

From October 17

2017 ALCS Game 4:

2017 NLCS Game 3:

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.

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.

All four series are alive and well (even though 3 can end tomorrow!)

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.)
