O's now 2nd in Majors in ERA
With St. Louis getting knocked around a bit tonight by the Bucs, the O's have moved into 2nd in the majors in Team ERA. Only the Nationals remain ahead of Baltimore.
Crazy to think the O's and Nats could meet in a few weeks and by #1 and #2 in ERA.

Go outside, turn around 3 times and spit. Right now.

We would be first if we had as soft as schedule as the Nats had in April.

The O's have a team ERA of 2.83, first in the AL but second in the majors to the Nationals 2.41. However, the Nationals get to pitch to pitchers. Is there a way of getting the team ERA's if you take that out, and (to make things fair) take out the O's pitching to opposing team's #9 hitter? (Presumably you just take out the #9 hitter on both sides.) Technically, that still slightly favors the Nationals since opposing AL teams get to have a DH that might not otherwise play the field, but it's as close as we can get that I can think of.

I'll admit, I was not expecting our pitching staff to be very good this season. Certainly not #2 ERA kinda good.
The year is young, but a lot of promising signs from this crew.
