So this guy on twitter, @RandallJSanders, notes that he was hearing "Earnies" in reference to earned runs given up by a pitcher. He suggested we needed a "Bert" statistic to go along. After a brief discussion, it was decided Berts will refer to runs given up.

"Jackson gave up 8 berts, only 5 Earnies tonight."

So that's how it is now and I fully expect everyone to use this. Thank you and have a great night.
