H2H weird points how would you approach it?

Postby cwrtlm » Wed Feb 11, 2009 9:11 pm

10 team H2H points with weekly lineups. can start any type of pitcher with no pitching limits.
Batting
Doubles (2B) 2 Triples (3B) 3
Home Runs (HR) 4 Singles (1B) 1
Walks (BB) 1 Intentional Walks (IBB) 1
Hit by Pitch (HBP) 1 Sacrifices (SAC) 0.5
Runs Scored (R) 1 Runs Batted In (RBI) 1
Stolen Bases (SB) 2 Strikeouts (K) -1
Team Win (BTW) 3

Pitching
Innings Pitched (IP) 3 Hits Allowed (H) -1
Walks Issued (BB) -0.5 Earned Runs (ER) -1
Strikeouts (K) 1 Wins (W) 10
Losses (L) -3 Saves (SV) 10
Complete Games (CG) 5 Quality Starts (QS) 3
Shutouts (SO) 5 No Hitters (NH) 10
Perfect Games (PG) 15

I am looking at the 3 points per team win for a batter and the 3 points per innning pitched as being really intriguing. I am thinking of reaching for players in the same tieir that play on better teams. Take Boston for instance, last year they won 95 games 3 points per win is about 285 over 22 weeks of regular season play that equals to about 13 more points per week. Is that enough to bump Pedroia over Kinsler or Roberts? Baltimore won 68 games so that equals to about 9 points more per week, so 4 more points per week on average.
In the pitching part inning eaters who can get alot of QS are far more valuable than a high K guy who can get knocked out early? 3 points per inning pitched and 3 points for a QS.
Any where I can put together a custom cheat sheet where I can enter W's and these different categories? Any thoughts about these

My points league was much like that for the first season. We've since lowered the points for saves and added holds. Much depends on how many of each position you have to field. We had 4 SP and 4 RP. With 30 major league teams you really only have 30 players with legitimate shots at saves which are worth 10 points not to mention the other points for IP, Ks and the occasional win. If you have 10 teams with 4 RP each, your league will be starting 40 RP. IMO, the top closers are gold in that league. Quality SP will also be at a premium with that point setup. Your rankings should be very different than most that are discussed here. Also keep a close eye on the closing situation for any teams that don't have a solid closer.

Let me give you an example of how our scoring ended last season to show you what I mean; and as I said, we added holds and lowered the value of saves to 6.
2b over 400 points 10
2b over 500 points 3
RP over 400 points 11
RP over 500 points 4
SP over 400 points 25
SP over 500 points 11
SP over 600 points 4
30th ranked rp had 300 points and the 30th ranked sp had 375 points.

This means that every team will have a shot at a decent 2b, but many if not all teams will be saddled with pitching that is far inferior to the rest. I'd try to get at least one elite SP and a couple of elite closers. Then I like high K sp on quality teams; I guess everyone does. Seems to work for me.
