I don't care if the runs you give up are earned or not. Last time I checked, if you walk a guy and he scores the winning run, you still lose the game. This is like an earned goal stat, if you let in a softie it's not an earned goal!

ERA should just be RA. In fact, if you walk guys who eventually score a run, that makes you a worse pitcher. That means you're giving up FREE runs.
Walks that end up scoring do count in ERA. So do hit batsmen. Only batters reaching on errors don't count.
