Infinte ERA

Just wondering, but what happens when your pitcher, (Lidge), has an infinite ERA and WHIP. How do your roto standings update?

Well the stats would just add the earned runs and hits/walks given up without any innings pitched...

In the case of Lidge yesterday, you would get added 3 earned runs for the ERA portion and 3 hits and 1 walk for the WHIP portion with no increase to the IP.

Hope this helps

The numbers are simply computed in with the rest of the stats in the applicable categories.

Let's say, for instance, that early in the season your guys have pitched a total of 9 innings, having allowed 8 hits and 0 walks, and 3 runs.

Then a guy comes in to pitch to one batter who hits a solo homer.

You now have the same 9 IP but have allowed 4 earned runs, and 9 hits. So your ERA goes from 3.00 to 4.00 and your WHIP goes from (I don't know exactly, but just under 1.00) to 1.00.

Naturally, the effect is less dramatic further along in the season where those stats are mixed in with much more than 9 innings of work.
