Below the league average?

Today's stating-the-obvious-but-somehow-managing-to-mess-it-up award goes to ESPN.com's Keith Law, who in an article on MLB All-Star selections notes that [San Francisco Giants closer Brian] "Wilson's ERA (4.37) is below the NL average (4.27), even though he pitches in a pitchers' park."

I'd like to note (given that Law didn't) that 4.37 is, in fact, more than 4.27.
