1B - Singles 1 point 2B - Doubles 2 points 3B - Triples 3 points BB - Walks (Batters) 1 point CS - Caught Stealing -1 point HR - Home Runs 4 points KO - Strikeouts (Batter) -1 point R - Runs 1.5 points RBI - Runs Batted In 1.5 points SB - Stolen Bases 2 points
Scoring for Pitching Categories 1BA - Singles Allowed -.5 points 2BA - Doubles Allowed -1 point 3BA - Triples Allowed -1 point BBI - Walks Issued (Pitchers) -1 point BS - Blown Saves -3 points ER - Earned Runs -2 points HRA - Home Runs Allowed -1 point INN - Innings 3 points K - Strikeouts (Pitcher) 1 point L - Losses -3 points QS - Quality Starts 3 points S - Saves 10 points W - Wins 5 points
Here's the positions:
C,C,1B,2B,3B,SS,CI,MI,OF,OF,OF,OF,OF,UT SP,SP,SP,SP,SP,SP,RP,RP, either SP/RP
no bench? take advantage of a point per walks for batters. maybe go for bonds or howard. reyes would look good in that system as would ichiro. wtf is up with saves? pay big for closers if they are going to get you 400 points in saves alone geez thats a lot. ive never played with a point system even close to that so cant help you out too much, sry man. i wouldnt invest much in sp. wins only 5points, loss -3 and er -2 when a blown save is only -3? looks like you go HUGE on closers. maybe look at k-rod, ryan and putz combo

pretty ridiculous a save is worth double what a win is worth. i would go with a guy like a reyes, or soriano if you can get them, keep with guys who will hit the ball as it seems that power isnt too big a factor in this. and get all the closers you can get, as you can accumulate saves a lot easier then wins i believe.
Avoid speed guys, unless their success rate is pretty amazing. With SB only at 2 pts and CS counting negative, a guy like Pierre is basically worthless. Take closers early, and middle relievers late, grab what SP value you can in the middle. Power hitters who don't K much i suppose are the value on the hitting side- Vladdy says hi.

what is it with people in points leagues asking for advice? points leagues are so easy to rank or value players. why don't you just project everyone's points, subtract replacement level points at each position from players at that position, and then sort. voila, you have your rankings just like that
