    Posted by on March 10th, 2008 · Comments (2)

    Via The Bill James Gold Mine 2008 on Damaso Marte:

    Worst ERA When Recording a Hold in 2007 (min. 10 Holds):

    Doug Brocail – 7.87 ERA – 10 Holds
    Damaso Marte – 7.50 ERA – 15 Holds
    Shawn Camp – 6.43 ERA – 11 Holds
    Brad Hennessey – 6.35 ERA – 13 Holds
    Kyle Farnsworth – 5.40 ERA – 15 Holds

    Wow. Worse than Farnsie? Dat’s no good. It’s berry, berry, bad, my friends.

      Judging relievers based on ERA is not the greatest thibg in the world.

      Usually they only pitch 1 inning, so 12 great innings and 3 awful ones can end up making that persons ERA look worse than another pitcher who had 12 average innings and 3 good ones.

      Game logs, please.
