If you’re not a baseball fan, I’ll just tell you this: a 0.56 ERA through 10 starts is absolutely fantastic. Actually, it’s the lowest ERA through the first 10 starts of a season since “earned runs” became an official, recognized statistic back in 1913.
And just so you know, allowing four total earned runs while recording five RBIs through 10 starts is additionally sensational.
