A run can never be counted as earned if scored due to an error by ANY player. (But, I do see your point)

No, error

Generally yes...if a pitcher walks a batter and he comes around to score, that is an earned run against the pitcher, unless he scores on an error Bases loaded walks that score a run also count as an earned run against the pitcher that allowed the man on third to reach base, unless he reached base on an error

If a pitcher walks a batter with the base loaded -- thus permitting a run to score -- that run is counted as "earned" run, just as if the batter had gotten a hit.

A pitcher stat is a statistical number that determines how a pitcher has performed during his career. For instance, "H" tells you how many batters have gotten hits off of him. G is how many games he's participated in. ERA is a pitcher's earned run average. etc

It is obviously earned. The only way for a team to get an unearned run is if an error makes scoring the run possible, either by allowing the runner to advance or allowing the inning to extend beyond what would have been three outs. p.s. The fourth batter gets an RBI also.

They are calculated into his Earned Run Average as earned runs, unless something happened in the inning to make them unearned runs.

A batter that reaches base due to an error and later scores is not counted as an earned run.

Earned runs are runs that are scored because of hits stolen bases. Un-earned runs are those where a runner gets on base because of an error and eventually scores. The earned run average (ERA) is calculated by taking the total number of earned runs scored against a pitcher and dividing that by the total number of innings that pitcher pitched. The lower the ERA the better the pitcher, usually.

Yes because it was that pitcher's fault for letting him get on base in the 1st place. Yes, runs that score because of walks are still earned. Errors are the only things that factor into whether runs are earned or unearned.
