CBS Sportsline - Stupid Scoring Question

Postby aclapsaddle » Thu Jan 03, 2008 12:20 am

I am taking over as commissioner of our league. I am familar with Rotisserie and head-to-head. What is a Ranked (points based) scoring system? How does it work?
If you leave a link, I will look at yours. I will answer if I think my opinion can help.

You set points for each thing... say 1 point for a hit, 4 points for a HR, 2 points for a double, 1 point for a K, 10 points for a win, etc., etc., and then your team just accumulates points over the season. Most points at the end wins.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

The prior post basically summed it up. One point per Single, RBI, or Run; 2 points per Double or Stolen Base, 3 points per Triple, 4 points per HR. Most possess negative (minus -1) per Strikeout or Caught Stealing. Pitching stats vary among each of the Stat Websites. For example in Sandbox (under the Fantasy points format) each pitcher was awarded one full point per one-third of an inning pitched, which equated to 3 pts. per inning. (CBS was .75 an inning) They would gain an additional one point per Strikeout, but would accumulate negative points (minus - 1) per each Hit, Walk, HBP, Wild Pitch allowed. Sandbox awarded 10 points per Pitching win and/or Save but they also possessed Pitching Maximum # of games allowed per season & you could not exceed those limits.
CBSSportsline is very similar to Sandbox, but some of the pitching points awarded are different. I personally prefer CBSSportsline over Sandbox in the Fantasy Points Head-to-Head Scoring system. On a side note, Sandbox awarded NEGATIVE points for your hitter grounding out in a double-play & ALSO awarded NEGATIVE points if your player committed a fielding error. I can understand the minus one point when your catcher is at fault per a past ball, but some of my other corner infielders would absolutely kill my boxscore w/ their EEEEEE's! (Couple that boxscore up w/ them striking out 3 or 4 times a game too!) Good Luck & Dominate in '08!
