you guys are all wrong. it's not that simple....you're all buying into government propaganda. they want you to believe that it's a calculation that any 2nd grader with half a brain could handle....oh, but it's not....the real calculation is...
where x = number of innings pitched while sober
b = number of innings pitched while juiced up
a = average shoe size of opposing batters
n = number of weeks on HGH
Ø = times faced by lebanese immigrant third basemen
Plug in the numbers, and voila, era or whip, depending on which category you're thinking about. Now remember, this is stuff they don't want you to know about, shhhhhhhhhh...
