Question:.....Closer comes in, gets NO ONE OUT, say he gives up a hit and a home run....game over. His ERA and WHIP show up as
INF(inite) ....BUT...(here's the question) What does that do to your teams pitching stats?????
INFinitely high numbers would mean you totally LOSE those 2 categories ERA and WHIP no matter how many innings you had thrown that week right?...So how do the Fantasy Basball computers handle that situation???...This must happen fairly often so they must have come up with a way to handle it...right or wrong.
its not a stupid question at all. not every1 knows every little part of fantasy. but as the guys said above, it just factors into your week for h2h and the whole year for roto. if u got a guy who pitches 7 innings with a shutout, then the guy u said giving up say 3 runs with no outs, that qualifies as 7 innings 3 earned runs.

why make a rude post when everyone else is being civil?
oh, i know why. bc your a weak individual who looks for confrontation via a computer bc your too weak to look for fights on your own (which would also be stupid, but at least less pathetic). you must be very small inside
Whatever runs he gave up would simply be figured into your team ERA. If you had zero IP at the end of the matchup then your teams ERA would be infinte.
Let's say the only other pitcher you had appear that week was a SP who threw a 9 inning CGSO. Your team's ERA would be 2.00.
If that was the only P who appeared all week for your team then your ERA and WHIP would be infinite.
your pitching is seen as giving up two hits and one run. so your era and whip are calculated based off of total innings (other pitchers included) and total hits/walks/runs (for era/whip) surrendered. does that make sense? so its as if you just added an additional two hits and a run when factoring them into your previous stats.
