first shouldn't doubles be 2 and triples 3 pts?

I would include some negative categories for hitters:

-1 for strikeouts.
-1 for caught stealing
-2 for grounding into double play

just suggestions

This has me a little confused. You're planning a head to head league, with roto-style points? Or are these points values given per stat like -

Team one = 3 HR
Team two = 6 HR
Team two earns 4 points (instead of the one point in other H2H's)


Is that about right or am I really off here?

sorry that was me - forgot to log on.

also I don't know that I would include CG for pitching. there are so many factors that go into that stat with the main one being coaches.

Also there are so few pitchers that cna go a complete game so you would be reward those so few with large point values. Therefore if someone was unlucky enough not to have a guy that could go a complete game or have one that can (Oswalt) but never will due to coaching (Jimy "the Hook" Williams), they won't be able to make up the point difference.

In my fantasy league we are big on stat categories. Ladt year we did a yahoo yead to head. Whoever has the most or best of a category gets a point. Than the points are added up to see who won the week.

Now we are trying to do a football based head to head.

TRiples are considered statistical anomalies....last year if an outfielder fell down someone would get a triple and than win the category. It was pretty signifigant.
Also they want to add Holds this year....and i feel that a hold is a pitchers answer to a triple. So we are atempting to weight are categories accordingly.
That's why the triples are lower than the doubles...but i'm not sure if the weighting is right...does anyone else weight their categories for points?

I think I see where you're coming from. I've played in a few leagues that have added triples and holds and CG's and they were pretty frustrating for me because of what you said - one triple might be enough to win the point. But, on the other hand, shouldn't a team who wins that catagory be rewarded extra for winning a tough catagory.

team one would earn 12 points
team two would earn 24 points
(team 2 instead of earning one point for the HR category would have 24 ponts going to their total score for the week, and team one would have 12 points going to their total score.

Its like football where all your stats would be added up as points for the week. Imagine having a rb who scored three tds....but you got bead because tds were only one category, the other guy won the fg and def categories to edge you out.....

This is very heavily weighted towards closers. Even with getting one point per inning, the starters get dinged for -5 (huge) per loss and there is nothing for a blown save.

My suggestion is to simplify it a bit and make wins and saves worth the same but do not penalize for a loss.
