Should Earned Runs Allowed redirect here? The page doesn't explain what an "earned run" is, which baseball newbies might be interested in. If earned runs allowed does redirect here, we should add such a definition. - --Mischa 09:27, 4 February 2007 (EST)

There really shouldn't be a Earned Runs Allowed and an Earned runs allowed. The search engine takes care of things like that. ERA (being a common acronym) should redirect to Earned runs allowed. According to the style guide, only the first word should be capitalized, so I've marked the other Earned Runs Allowed page for deletion (and started the detele page template, incidentally). -Ohms law 19:11, 16 March 2007 (EDT)

ERA stands for Earned run average, though, not earned runs allowed. We should have separate pages for both and an explanation of what an earned run is. - --Mischa 09:47, 18 March 2007 (EDT)
