Correction:
ERA = total runs multiplied by nine, then divided by IP.


Eh, technically the math comes out the same. The only slight difference would be caused by decimal limits on a calculator.[/quote]
Yes, sorry - I deleted my post. You were just too quick for me. :-D

I wonder if anyone started him in a roto league. If so, they are probably too scared at the lashing they would take here to admit it.

I started him in a roto league. I have been starting him the last 7 outings and he has pitched quite good.

the good thing is that I acutally didnt move in rankings in ERA or Whip in my league but numbers went from 4.21 to 4.43 and from 1.35 whip to 1.38

this has to be the single most funny line ive ever seen, INF happens all the time, but inorder to get 270 you have to give up 10runs while getting only 1 out, that is unreal

Good note* his out was a K

As a guy who spot started Sowers, I feel like I should owe Hudson some money. :-D

270 era, that has to hurt! I'm glad he had that kind of day because it gave Sowers a guarantee win at least. But anybody having hudson starting have to be crying after that outing because he got rocked!!!!!! !+) !+) !+) !+)

I dropped him after 8 runs, and changed my smack talk to "Luke Hudson is the suckiest sucker ever to suck".

Yep, since his 270 ERA is a projection of how many runs he would have given up over nine full innings, it's only fair to point out that he also would have stuck out 27 batters. Way to go Luke! ;-D

On the bright side, his K/9 was 27...

Unfortunately, his BAA was .889.

I started him. ERA and WHIP were lost for the week... I was just chasing W and K. He just boosted my ERA a full two points. :-o


you spotstarted a royal?


take a look at Hudson's game log will ya? ;-7

though spot starting Royals for wins is never, I stress NEVER b a good idea :-° ....



...yet


2008 baby!


I don't have to look at his game logs. His last start against Cleveland:

2.1 IP, 8 hits, 7 er, 2 walks
