    How does that compare in terms of pure suck over innings pitched with Jimmy Gobble's 8.81 ERA over 31 2/3 innings? A bit of a "quality over quantity" debate if you wilL!

      Jose Lima earned a spot on this thread with a 5.26 era in over 1500 innings.

        Joe Nuxhall, 1944
        ERA: 67.50
        At the age of 15 he pitched 2/3rds of inning for the Cincinnati Reds in 1944. He allowed 5 earned runs, 2 hits and 5 walks.


        He did return 8 years later... and finished his career with an average ERA of 3.9.

            A picther with 4.25 ERA will be looking over his sholder for his entire career.

            1) Bobo Newsome 1938 Browns 20-16 5.08 E.R.A.
            2) Rick Helling 1998 Rangers 20-7 4.41
            3) Jim Merritt 1970 Reds 20-12 4.08
            4) Dan Spillner 1980 Indians 16-11 5.29
            5) Len Barker 1980 Indians 19-12 4.17

            These are,of course,before this crazy era of 4.25 E.R.A.s being respectable!
