They are saying the roof will be open tonight, with game time temp at 104 F

Braves have never faced Archie Bradley, who is 2-2 with a 5.28 ERA , 1.53 WHIP

This is scary, because the Braves have historically struggled with pitchers they've never faced before. Hope this isn't the case tonight.

Bradley's better than his ERA indicates.

You are what your stats say you are.... If he pitches well tonight, then he is better than that. A pitcher's record can be deceptive, but the ERA says it all.

ERA can be very deceptive as well. If you've got a bad defense behind you then you're going to have a higher ERA than you are with a good defense regardless of how good or not you're pitching.

Yes, to a point. If they are a slow moving defense that just can't get to balls that is one thing. Errors don't figure in to an ERA. But still, it's not like you could say he is way lower than a 5.

Both have valid points. One thing u can say is that someone, very especially a young talented someone, can have some wild swings in performance. One start he may look unhittable, and the next get knocked around.

True, but have to look at the whole body of work, not just his best work.
