Agree - high ratios generally lead to higher ERAs.
The answer to your question is "it depends" - as it depends on your team. Obviously, a MR with low ERA and ratio help more than one with a ratio of 1.5. But if you're sitting there with Pedro and Willis and other low ratio starters, you can afford the hit while collecting the holds.
Also, if you'll gain more standing points in holds than you could potentially lose in ERA and ratio, then yes, a high ratio reliever can help you.
