    How about single season Starters? I guess this could be a seperate thread. Some come to mind:

    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!
    If you had era of 4.25, before the 90's , you were considered not very good.

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

    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.

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

    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!

    Using baseball-reference.com play index I found 13 pitchers with 20 or more starts with an ERA of 7.00+. Including 2 Phillies from 1930 who actually came in 1 and 2. Sweetland and Willoughby with 7.71 and 7.59 with 27 and 24 GS.

    There were a total of 139 pitchers with 20 or more starts with an ERA of 6.00+. AMAZING!!!

    Randy Johnson managed to have a solid season despite an ERA of 5.00.
    He was 17-11 with 172 strikeouts and 114 ER in 205 innings. I wonder how he managed to have half of that ERA 4 seasons previous to that.

    A more recent player to come to mind with a high ERA is Hideo Nomo. In 2004 his ERA was 8.24 in 84.0 innings. In 2005 he had a 7.24 ERA in 100.7 innings. Another player from Tampa Bay, Dewon Brazelton had a 7.61 ERA in 71.0 innings last year. Ouch, that hurts for the D-rays.
    Casey Fossum for the Rays is working on that as well this year. Only Maddon putting him in the Bullpen may prevent him from pitching over 100 innings with an ERA over 7.00 for the season.

    Every year he's not horrible, he's a pretty good player.

    But...he has to work on the W/L thing and ERA :hyper:

    I doubt Jeff Weaver will get many more chances to improve on the 0-6 record and 14.32 ERA he currently has.

    Jose Lima had more than one year with a high ERA
    2006 - 0 wins 4 loses 17.3 innings 9.87 ERA
    2005 - 5 wins 16 loses 168.7 innings 6.99 ERA
    2002 - 4 wins 6 loses 68.3 innings 7.77 ERA
    2001 - 6 wins 12 loses 165.7 innings 5.54 ERA
    2000 - 7 wins 16 loses 196.3 innings 6.65 ERA
    1996 - 5 wins 6 loses 72.7 innings 5.70 ERA
    1995 - 3 wins 9 loses 73.7 innings 6.11 ERA

    I used to think Ron Bryant's 1973 season where he posted a 24-12 record with a 3.53 ERA was terrible.

    This topic was in Baseball Digest a few months ago.
    i assume you mean 'highest". yeah, one of the worst ever, easy. i watched him all yeah, unfortunately h . it got me to thinking he might have had the worst season of any fulltime starter ever. but who were the 4 guys "ahead" of him- with worse ERAs? thanx in advance red.

    oh yeah, another question. who has the worst adjusted ERAs ever at each level- 1,000, 2000, 3000 IP, etc? anybody know?
