If you go back and check the ERA leaders each season, those teams that have pitchers that put up a 2:1 K:W ratio for the entire season
usually end up in the top half of the league in pitching. If you are below 2:1, you are usually in the bottom half.
So, if the Reds ratio remains good, the odds of their ERA dropping should be good.
