Washburn's ERA ------> Fairy Land

Is it possible for a pitcher's ERA to be less reflective of his ability than Washburn's is after today's game?  I didn't see the game, but I counted at least four plays by outfielders which caused Dave's voice to reach the Pitch+Decibel Threshold equaling "Truly Awesome Play."  With an average defense behind him Mr. Chipmunk goes about six innings and gives up four runs or so (i.e. vintage Washburn) and his ERA is ~6.00.

Could Jakubauskas seriously be much worse?
