Earned runs per start



I'm sure someone has to have thought of this stat for starting pitchers already: "Earned runs per start." It would seem to me to be better than ERA in some respects, because it reduces the impact of those two-inning, eight-run aberrations. Simply divide total ERs allowed by total number of games started. I know it's really simple, but I've never seen it anywhere before.

Does anyone use this stat? Curious.
