tweak to the earned run average stat.

its an off day. i think i've read about every thread. good stuff.i even read the one where it says i'm one of 10,000 or so who come to AN daily. now, if we can get the other 9,999 to go to games, then i won't have to worry about the relocation division standings i so ineloquently blogged about before.. anyway, here's my thought. haven't heard it elsewhere, although i haven't read every bill james book. apologies if this is not an original thought.
for era's why not charge different percentages for each base. it'll still add up to one run. the percentage of responsibilty of the baserunner to the departed pitcher will be reduced from the current 100% it has always been. works like this. starter leaves game in 6th inning with runners on first and second. reliever comes in. gives up double scoring the two inherited baserunners. starter should get charged not for both runs 100% like nowadays. makes no sense to me relief pitcher's era perfect for the day if his double hitting responsibilty on second doesn't score. doesn't sound fair since he, imo, let a run score from second so he should bear 50% responsibility to his era there, and, let a run score from first, so he should bear 75% responsibilty to his era. the starter's era effected .50 for the runner on second. and, .25 for the runner on first. the relief pitcher's era effected .50 for the inherited runner on second scoring and .75 for the
inherited runner on first scoring. for further explanation, had the relief pitcher inherited a runner on 3rd base who scored on his watch, then, he would be charged .25 to his era and the prior pitcher .75. whaddaya think. lets go oak-land!
