More Strikeouts, Fewer Walks

3.00+ K/BB (since 2000)
2002 Diamondbacks
2006 Twins
2011 Phillies
2012 Phillies
2012 Yankees
2012 Tigers

Just another example of the increased dominance of pitchers over even just a few years ago.  Interestingly, the Tigers, Yankees and Phillies ranked #9, 11 and 12 in ERA last year.  There are, of course, many other factors that go into how many runs a team gives (including the type of park they play in), but I would expect teams with a 3.00+ K/BB this year to have a decent ERA.
