This is probably better asked in the Commissioner's corner, and it's actually been asked a few times.
Here's a couple of posts that can help:viewtopic.php?f=189&t=341354&hilit=points+leagueviewtopic.php?f=189&t=326468&hilit=points+league
Not much help on the offensive side there, but I'll give you my .02 for offense. Don't use any negatives for caught stealing. It makes stolen bases irrelevant because the only people caught stealing are people who steal bases.
I personally don't have negatives for anything on offense, but I think I would be tempted to throw in a -.5 for strikeouts if the rest of my league had an interest. Just keep in mind if you go this route what it means. It significantly decreases the value of a lot of power hitters. I would definitely NOT do -1 for an offensive strikeout.
Here's my offensive setup, which is basically default CBS with minor adjustments:
1B-1, 2B-2, 3B-3, HR-4, R-1, RBI-1, SB-2, BB-1, HBP-1, IBB-1. No bonus points for grand slams or anything. You already get 9 points for one anyway, so it's plenty beneficial IMO.
W-10, S-8, L- -2, BS- -2, IP-2, K-1, BB- -.5, H- -.5, ER- -1, CG-5
It's quite easy using Excel to apply a points system to a previous season to see how players rank and make adjustments accordingly.
Under the system I use, power hitting high OBP types are the most valuable offensive players and there's a pretty fair balance between closers and starters with a slight tilt towards high quality starters, as you can see from the first thread I posted. Poor starting pitchers can really kill you because of the negatives.
Points leagues are great. Enjoy!
