Guys and gals…on August 1, our big free agent signing will have an ERA north of 7.00.

That’s scary.

    I’m surprised Brian hasn’t posted this yet:
    (all numbers since 1900)
    Highest ERA – Leo Sweetland (1930 Phillies) – 7.71 (2.74 above league average)

    Highest ERA (Reds) – Herm Wehmeier (1950) – 5.67 (1.53 above league average)

    Doubt Milton will get the league record, but the Reds record looks to be his.

    Yeah, but then Belisle let them score and then gave up a few more hits of his own. Not exactly what you hope for.
