im almost positive it does say 27, not in the stat tracker but the head to head matchup section the following day.

nothing i can do to prove it know, but ill check it out during tommorrows games.

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.


This is correct.

Tomorrows games won't show it anyways, because this guy got an out. Yahoo! shows INF I can guarantee you that.

Yes it does, no doubt about it. I've had a single MR going on a Monday and the next day it has said INF when he got no outs but gave up a run (which happens way too often with my MRs).

Your weekly ERA is your total runs divided by the number of innings pitched, multiplied by nine. If someone gives up 10 runs with no outs, it just adds 10 runs to that formula. Your weekly ERA is NOT the average of all your pitchers ERAs.

Correction:
ERA = total runs multiplied by nine, then divided by IP.[/quote]

Eh, technically the math comes out the same. The only slight difference would be caused by decimal limits on a calculator.

Yep I second that. I had Izzy one day early in the year and he had 3 runs and no out in a blown save...I experienced a INF.
