Stat of the Day (2000 A.L. E.R.A. Title)

As Bryan alluded to, Pedro Martinez has some great numbers, but maybe none more eye-popping than his 2000 American League E.R.A. crown.

Martinez’s E.R.A. that season, while he was pitching for the Boston Red Sox, was 1.74, an impressive feat on its own considering he faces a designated hitter instead of a pitcher about three times a game. What is really amazing, though, is that Roger Clemens, while pitching for the New York Yankees, finished in second place with an E.R.A. of 3.70.
