Ender wrote:They should remove ERA and just use RA. Errors are way too subjective, CF loses the ball in the lights, it falls at his feet without him touching it and it is a 'hit'. Ball is hit hard at the 3B who makes an amazing defensive play on it but then throws over the 1B head with a quick throw and it is an 'error' even though most 3B probably have the ball just go right by them.
The whole concept is just flawed.
I was at the Mets Brewers game last night and Bill Hall smoked a grounder right at Jose Reyes. It two hopped to Reyes who had it bounce off his glove
and go back into the infield. It's a play that every single big league shortstop should make. Official ruling? Hit for Bill Hall. Errors are all about the home team scorer.
