Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but it's one point per base right? So 30 HR would equal 120 points and 20 SB would equal 40 points. Wouldn't you still want the power guys over the speed guys in this system?
An elite basestealer like Pierre would have a lot of value as 60 steals would be equal to 30 homers, plus you'd get points for all the singles, doubles, etc. that put him on base in the first place. But I don't see Baldelli stealing enough to augment his below average power to the point of being more valuable than a legit power guy. Of course, I'll offer the disclaimer that I'm not high on Baldelli because of his poor K/BB ratio, but I think in general while this system adds value to SBs, it doesn't do it to the extent of making you want to pass a better all-around hitter or power guy just for a few extra steals.
I'd rank these guys:
Patterson (but watch him in spring training to make sure he's healthy)
"I'm telling ya, he jumped us. Gloves off, stick down, no warning. He challenged the Chiefs. Called us names. But Dave was there."
"Dave's a killer."
"Yeah, Dave's a killer."
"Dave's a mess."
