I play H2H points league. 10 Team CBS league Batting Category Point Value Single 1 point Double 2 points Triple 3 points Home Run 4 points RBI 1 point Run 1 point Base on Balls 1 point Stolen Base 2 points
Pitching Category Point Value Win 10 points Save 10 points Complete Game 5 points Strikeout 1 point Base on Balls -0.5 points Inning Pitched 2 points Hits Allowed -0.5 points Earned Runs -1 point
We have standard positions, and any combo of 7 SP/ RP. Would it be a good strategy to take all hitting first, and then have maybe one starter, and load up on closers? Since they have a chance of pitching 4-5 times a week, is this the strategy I should roll with?

I got into a redraft league a few years ago - my first in a CBS HTH league - I discovered that since Ws and SVs were both 10 points, closers might be pretty valuable. I ran the numbers and sure enough the middle-tier closers were about on par with the second-tier SPs (the one's just after the elite guys go). I ranked all pitchers together, tallied projected points, tiered and drafted from that.
It lowered SP value and bumped the middle-tier closers up a ton. I was drafting 5th-6th round value closers in the 9th-11th rounds. I think I ended up with 1 SP and 7-8 closers to fill 7 pitching spots.
The next season the league changed rules slightly in that there was a max/min on how many SPs and RPs you could start. Hey at least they recognized the issue and adapted the rules to make it more fair (how you're supposed to handle it) instead of whining about it during my first year.

Not sure how a H2H works with points instead of CAT's.
No limits. It's just like a fantasy football points league. You go up against someone, and whoever has the most points wins.
Well then I'd say the strategy won't work then. All someone has to do is pitch mad starters, and they would beat you heavily in Inning Pitched, Wins, Strikeouts, (complete games), etc.
If it's daily lineup changes. Most CBS leagues are weekly (at least the one's I've played in), meaning the guy may end up with a ton of 2-start pitchers at best, but that should still only equal your pitching points and you'll own him in hitting.
