    Special acknowledgement for futility should go to Jim Brady, for having recorded the most outs while giving up more earned runs that outs. He recorded 19 outs and gave up 20 earned runs. Tough to do.

    This got me curious too. The first guy who came to mind was Walter Johnson, and I see he was just short of 6000 (5914). Then I wondered about Christy Mathewson, but even he didn't make 5000 (4780).

    If I'm not mistaken, the guy with the highest tangible (non-infinite) ERA is Joe Cleary at 189.00, thanks to the 7 ER he surrendered in his 1/3 inning career in 1945.

    Only Cy Young did it. For your info, Pud Galvin is also the only one with 6000 + IP, and there are 10 guys who have 5000 +.

    60 IP Charlie Stecher 10.32
    40 IP Stu Flythe, 13.12
    20 IP Sid Schacht, 15.00

    Worst Earned Run Averages (ERAs)

    Hello Baseball Fever Fans,

    I was answering a question over on Baseball Almanac about hall of fame pitchers with the worst ERA and gave this list of those with an ERA above 3.59:

    1. 3.80 : Red Ruffing
    2. 3.67 : Ted Lyons
    3. 3.64 : Jesse Haines
    4. 3.60 : Herb Pennock

    This made me wonder about pitchers in general who had some of the worst earned run averages ever. I set some levels so it could be fair and came up with the following names:

    100 IP : 8.86 Andy Larkin
    250 IP : 6.99 Bill Kissinger
    400 IP : 6.74 Jim Walkup
    800 IP : 5.84 Claude Willoughby
    1,000 IP : 5.11 Mike Sullivan

    Plenty of other levels for you to take a look at, but I hope you enjoyed this brief list nonetheless. Reply with other plateaus if you do the research and share with us your findings...
