Does someone know the formula?

Thank you in advance.

rightno no..you go from left to right

(ER divided by IP) multiplied by 9.

I should've said (ER/IP)*9

Just the function of the text on a msg board that messed it up. I wasn't implying that IP would be multiplied by 9.

To make it simple without any * or /'s...ERA = earned runs times 9 divided by innings pitched

I think this is a joke.

I think this is a joke.

If it isn't, it should be, since you can get about 20 sites to answer the question in approximately 2 seconds by doing a google search for calculating ERA.

I think people are looking at this question too narrowly. I see it more as a philosophical question. He's not really asking how to calculate ERA (since, as Mick said, any schmoe could find that on the internet in a few seconds), but whether anyone truly knows how to calculate such a thing in this hostile and indifferent universe of ours.

It's in the same vein as asking, "What is a clutch situation?" Or, "What is fight or flight?" That sorta thing.

Rather existentialist, I'd say.

That got me laughing after a bad day.

one question about calculating era... if a run scores in the woods and no one is there to see it, does it count as an ER?

Only if it's scored against the Red Sox

You don't have to calculate it, you can simply buy it:

As soon as I posted this I realized I could've just looked it up...Lets all settle down.

I have a similar question, how are runs calculated?

To calculate how many runs a team has, you need several numbers:
1. ERA
2. Innings
3. A value for the number 9
4. Unearned runs

The formula is (ERA*Innings/9) + Unearned Runs. To get unearned runs, you need to subtract earned runs from total runs. But, since you are trying to get total runs, the formula is circular. So, it is not possible to calculate runs. ;)

You can only earn runs through determination, grit and hustle, so the formula is:

(D*G+H)*H2 where H2 is heart.

:roflmao:

Sure does seem those umpires have been counting those against us lately, doesn't it?
