Ed Walsh with in ERA of 1.82
ERA stands for a pitcher's earned run average.
Not necessarily. A pitcher could have a decent ERA but give up several hits and walks an inning. An adequate way to evaluate a pitcher would be to look at his WHIP (walks and hits per inning pitched), along with ERA
Low ERA is better - Means less Earned runs by a pitcher in Baseball
I think it was Carlos Zambrano with the Cubs in 2001 it was 15.26 ERA
Innings pitched divided by Earned runs times 9 = pitcher's ERA
In 1914 Dutch Leonard had a 0.96 ERA
Tim Keefe in 1880 had an ERA of 0.860.
Fernando Rodney in 2012. 0.61 ERA

If you are a baseball pitcher, you want a low era. ERA stands for earned run average, meaning how many runs were scored on you. You want low one because no pitcher wants people to score on them.
