    http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/PHI/2012.shtml


    Halladay: 4.40 era = 91 ERA+

    David Herndan: 4.70 era = 90 ERA+

    Chad Qualls: 4.60 ERA = 88 ERA+

    ERA+ is park adjusted thus it depends on which park the pitchers pitched on the road.

      This is a fairly recent change. A pitcher used to get the team's entire scoring environment. I am not sure they have gone back and done this for all seasons. If they do that, they might also adjust by home field edge (roughly 7-9% fewer runs allowed on average at home than on the road I think) and even by inning which could bring relievers down and starters up.

      Everyone keep in mind that ERA+ is not a linear measure of run prevention. A 200 ERA+ only saves twice the runs on average as a 133 ERA+, and even less for starters because the average starter allows about 110%

        The custom park factors go back until 1918. I've never read anything about a home-field advantage adjustment, but it's certainly an interesting idea.
