Just listening to today,s game and had some questions: 1) why was Arnett charged with the 2 runs in the 4th inn? 2) In Odorizzi's start on May 3rd his line was 5 runs 4 earned. The two runners that were on base when he left the game were his, I understand that but the 1 runner was forced out at home so should'nt he have 4 runs 3 earned charged to him? 3) some blogs are talking about the high era of the pitching staff would'nt this era be lower if the team didn't have so many errors? baseball bob
