There's a beginner's forum you may want to check out. It provides quite a bit of useful info. Yoda swears by it, I hear... ;-D

I don't think you want at least 3 ER. :-D

At least 6 IP, with at most 3 ER. ;-D

Yeah sorry, I will make sure to go memorize what all the stat categories are before I post anything else at the big kid's table. Good lookin' out.

Thanks for your help you guys.

It's a stat that agents created so they could garner a deal for their client without mentioning how many games they lost.

6 innings with a 4.50 ERA? That's a quality start.

God forbid you go 8 innings with a 4.50 ERA, though. That's not a quality start.

And don't even get me started on a complete game where one were to go 9 innings with a 4.00 ERA!
There's no chance in hell that's a quality start!!!
