        Does it bother anybody else that the video claims harry Heitmann didn't get any outs, but the article they use clearly says he got one out?

        edit: The video also says he had an infinite ERA, when the article clearly states he had a 108.00 ERA. I looked it up further and apparently his stats were disputed for a while between having faced 4 batters and gotten no outs, or 5 batters and having gotten 1 out. Baseball officially recognizes the 4 batters/no outs stat line, so he retired with the infinite ERA.

                I prefer that one guy whose ERA isn't even a number. He failed to get a single out.

                  Yeah I feel bad for him but I don’t really blame him for everything it seemed like a good amount of plays were just not taken advantage of by his team just in the clips plus that has gotta be immense pressure

                                                          Yu Darvish has a major league debut that was very strange. He gave up five runs in the first four out, then he settled down and pitched all the way through the end of the sixth inning giving up no more hits. It started out like what are we paying him 50 million dollars for? Then it became oh crap he's good !

This video is the opposite of Michael Jordan's advice about winners being the people who can overcome the first failures, which we all have. As Mayers overcame. So the sequel would have to be called "best comeback." I'm sorry for Mayers that he and his family have to endure this irrational, odd, gloating video.

Cards re-added him to the 40-man and he went 2 IP with 1 ER (solo homer) a few nights ago but his stuff looked pretty decent. Dude's had a tough career so far, hoping he is able to find his footing a bit as a reliever.

To calculate ERA you divide the number of earned runs conceded by the number of innings pitched (obviously, each out constitutes 0.bar3). If you fail to record an out, you would be dividing by 0. Dividing by zero is not infinite, it's undefined.
