Good golly, why are we suddenly getting a post of this type every other day? Sorry man, not trying to go off on you, but there are several threads asking the exact same question within the past few days, look around a bit.

Plug the numbers in Excel, see what you come up with. That's all anyone else could do for you. You'll pick up some strategy tips from reading what has been discussed in previous threads.

My first thought it that speed is pointless. HR is worth 7 points, while a stolen base is only worth 2 (-1 if caught).

[edit: did the math on Jose Reyes and Jim Thome. Last year Reyes would have gotten 567 under this scoring while Thome would have gotten 578]

I haven't done the math, but just looking at pitching is would still seem (even with 3 for inning) that a good closer would top a good starter. Have to do the math to figure it out for sure though.

[edit: did this math too. Based on last year's stats Johan Santana would get about 310 points and Todd Jones would get about 460]

Exploit away! ;-D

CLOSERS!!!!! 10 points for a save would win you the league if you had 3 or 4 solid closers (Nathan/Wagner/Lidge/Ray)
