You have to start more pitchers in the hopes of lowering that ERA & WHIP.

In other words . . .

INF is not INFINITY, it means INNING NOT FINISHED

uhm.
1) what kind of league is it?
2) how many innings have your pitchers pitched so far in the relevant period of time?

I never thought of that, because Infinity made sense, so I never thought it could mean something else.

I thought it meant infinite/infinity as well. I guess the all caps makes a little more sense now....ahhh...an acronym....thanks bitterdodgerfan for shedding some light.

I think it still is infinity. Otherwise a guy could get only one out (which is not finishing the inning), but he doesn't get INF.

INF = INFINITY because you can't divide by zero.

Will the era still be added to your current era?

I'm pretty sure it's INFINITY, not innings not finished.

In one league, we use K/BB as a stat. Thursday, Cordero pitched 1 inning, struck out one, and walked no one. His K/BB is INF. He obviously finished the inning.

inf is infinity. noone can convnice me otherwise. :-°

a lot of pitchers don't finish innings and only pitch fractions of innings... anyway... the reason I don't agree with inf meaning that is because I have seen people have no era and an infinite WHIP when they come out. i.e. a reliever comes in to face one batter, walks him and is taken out... the next pitcher gets the outs with that one runner not scoring -- the WHIP is INF, but the ERA is ----. if INF really meant Inning Not Finished, it would have been that entry in that column too...

hope that made some sense.
