Can you explain what a DIPS ERA is? I've never heard that term before.
Defense Independent Pitching Statistic
I'm not sure exactly how it is calculated, but it attempts to remove luck, team defense, and other variables that influence the regular pitching statistic. When there is a huge difference between actual ERA and DIPS ERA, it means something is amiss. I'm sure somebody will be able to elaborate on that further...
