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 count against a pitchers ERA....
and your comparison his horrible. if a goalie lets in a softie, it's the goalie's fault.... if the second baseman boots a grounder, i fail to see how that's the pitchers fault...
