Pitching Points System help

Postby Joe26 » Wed May 07, 2008 12:24 am

this is the current system.
Scoring for Pitching Categories
BBI - Walks Issued (Pitchers) -1 point
BS - Blown Saves -4 points
CG - Complete Games 5 points
ER - Earned Runs -1 point
INN - Innings 0.5 points
K - Strikeouts (Pitcher) 1 point
L - Losses -5 points
NH - No-Hitters 25 points
PG - Perfect Games 35 points
PKO - Pick Offs 3 points
S - Saves 10 points
SO - Shutouts 10 points
W - Wins 10 points
Looking to make starters and closers about equal in scoring,
last year Putz led with 540 points, CC led starters with 390 the 12th pitcher overal.

Here is what I did in my big boy.

Ws, SVs - 10 Pts.
IP - 2
BB, Hits - -.5
ER - -1
K - 1
Shutout - 5
CG - 5
No Hitter - 5
Perfect Game- 5

I dont have those huge bonuses you do because they are cumulative, and we were trying to limit the power of one pitching performance winning a week. Occasionally someone will have a huge game, but its not going to clinch a week (Like E. Santana, who had a 45 point game in our system Monday.)


We have weekly scoring. The top 10 pitchers so far are half starters and half closers. On a weekly basis the top 20 is usually starter heavy (thanks to two-start pitchers) but closers are more reliable on a weekly basis. I know, for example, that a closer like Jenks or Soria should score me 20 or so a week.

Its not perfect, I think we will actually pop a -3 for losses next year to avoid people streaming mediocre two-start pitchers

I don't award for No Hitters/Perfect Games, because in theory, they would count double.

I mean, assuming a minimum for a perfect game of 9 IP, 0 K, 0 BB, 0 ER, 0 H

That would be 4.5 points for the IP (assuming .5 is for each inning, if it's .5 per out, then this is 13.5 points)
10 for the Win
10 for the Shutout
5 for the Complete Game (and really, you can only get a shutout by pitching a perfect game, so thats kind of pointless to have both)
25 for the No Hitter
35 for the Perfect Game

That totals 89.5 points. Essentially, a Perfect Game is 89.5 points at the minimum, due to relatively redundant scoring

Anyway, I would make Innings One Point Per Out. That would help starters a lot. In theory you could keep the Shutout/Complete Game/No Hitter/Perfect Game rewards, but I don't really see why-- I mean, if they earn one of those accomplishments, they're already going to get a lot of points.
