    Offense adjusted ERA

    Ok, so there has been alot of discussion about Owings and whether or not he should have the #5 spot or not. We've only ever really looked at his pitching to determine this but one of the things Owings gives the Reds is a very good bat. So to be fair in evaluating him I thought it would be worthwhile to account for offense in his pitching stats. I don't know if there is already a stat out there for like this but I didn't see one readily when I googled. So if we take all the runs that Owings is directly apart of Runs and RBI's and subtract that from his ER before calcuating the ERA so the formula looks like this:

    (ER - (R + RBI)) / IP * 9

    When doing this with owings his Offense Adjusted ERA is: 3.50

    I used your formula for Janish and came up with a 0.00 ERA. What did I do wrong/

    I think what's missing is that only during pitching performances should be taken into account. If he pinch hits it shouldn't improve this metric. Do you agree?

    Yep, that's a way to adjust for the Janish factor.
