This past season the record of earned runs has been as variable as that of earned bases, scarcely any two scorer of the details of a match agreeing on what properly constitutes an earned run or an earned base; in consequence, no fair criterion of the play of the relatives nines in supporting their pitchers, or of that of the pitchers in giving the fielders chances to put players out, can be arrived at by the record of earned runs.
