Danny Graves and yahoo stat-keeping

Postby mtarail » Fri Apr 16, 2004 7:25 pm

I noticed that there's an INF besides the guy who pitched graves in his yahoo statline today, and his stats don't show up on yahoo's stat-tracker too. Does anyone here know if you get a "get out jail free" if your pitcher doesn't record an out before (or during the time that) he gets shelled?

'inf'= infinite. it is the worst whip or era you can have. runs scored no outs recorded. the runs get factored into the team era and the hits into the team whip... I don't quite see what you are confused about.

It just get averaged into the other stats, so no free pass, those runs and hits count against you.

I'm still confused about how you factor an infinite amount into a teams pitching stats. :-?

ok.
here's how things work, stat-wise.

say your staff has an era of 4.5 (not great, but easy to work with mathematically) and this comes from your pitchers having pitched 50 innings and giving up 25 runs.

now graves comes in and gives up 2 runs in no innings, therefore your staff has still pitched 50 innings but you have now given up 27 runs.

his era for the day is 9*2/0 = infinite
your era for your staff is 9*27/50 = 4.86

hope this helps

The runs & hits he let up get added to his TEAMS existing total for ERA & WHIP. Whatever he had for innings pitched before the outing doesn't change because he didn't record an out.

If you knew what his ERA & WHIP were before his implosion you'd be able to see the difference.

I have a 2.8 era and a whip of .8. Will my era be 4.8 after this?

Is there anyway i can minimize the damage?
