Its the numbers of runs the pitcher gives up divided by the number of innings he pitches. For example if a pitcher goes 9 innings and gives up 1 run his ERA is 1.00

Earned runs given up, not Runs given up.

Well that is what i thought but i wasnt sure because if you give up a run with no innings pitched it is only like 84.00 so i didnt know how that was figured out

If you do not have a third of an inning pitched and give up a run your ERA is Infinite. What i don't understand is how yahoo average Infinite and the other ones to figuire out your ERA for the week.

you add a run to the rest of what you staff has given up and don't add any innings, then just do the math.

your ERA and WHIP are ratios of totals. so say your entire staff gave up 20 earned runs and pitched 60 innings your ERA would be 3. if a pitcher has an ERA or WHIP of INF, runs or hits count towards the total but of course that pitcher recorder no outs to bring the ERA down or WHIP down.

So, in H2H for example:

If an RP has a 11 era over 2 innings and a SP has a 11 era over 6 innings, which one would hurt you more?

What I can't figure out is whether a RP's era affects your team era as much as your SP's does.

Hope that makes sense. Thanks.

RP pitch less innings, so there earned runs are spread over a much lower margin of innings. Thats why if a RP gets shelled he kills you in ERA cuz its like 36.00.
