Infinite ERA's happen all the time. You can't beat infinite.


True, but in terms of negative impact to your accumulation of stats by a single outing, I think this is the worst I've seen. 10 ER in 0.1 IP? :-P

Good point. I wonder then if it's anywhere near a record for a SP recording at least one out?

infiinity only counts as a 27 era, so id say this is much much worse.

What are you talking about? Infinity can't be measured. 1 ER and 1 out recorded is a 27 ERA.

of course infinitie cant be measured, but in fanasy they have to stop it somewhere or your weekly era would infintie, even if a guy just gave up 1 run without recording an out.

No. First of all, your weekly ERA can be infinite if you only play one guy, who doesnt get an out. Second of all, weekly ERA is accumulative of all of your pitchers, so even if one guy's ERA is infinite because he gives up 1 run with 0 outs, it's just added on to say your starter who went 7 innings with 2 runs. Your pitching stats are then 7 innings pitched, 3 runs allowed.

Check Yahoo! after someone has an infinite ERA one day. It says INF under the ERA column, not 27.00.
