The very reason that I don't play points is that they are always slanted toward the hitters or the pitchers. It is never even. Since the points in every league is different, it just makes drafting your team too much of a crapshoot. But I could be wrong..............

I think it depends on what you are trying to achieve. Personally I value starting pitching way more than relief pitching, but it looks the key to your league pitching wise is to get as many good relievers at the expense of starters.

I tried to evaluate some stats in a fantasy league last year with the intent of keeping hitting and pitching 50% each. The hitting categories are pretty easy to come up with (though I don't value a stolen base the same as a double :) ). From there I had an approximate # of points that the pitching should total with certain categories. So I then came up with a relatively arbitrary value for a bunch of pitching categories so that at the end of the season points scored by pitchers and hitters will hopefully be 50%. Once I came up with that number, I had to figure out how to value each category. From my view, closers are overrated and the guy who throws 200 innings is pretty important. I think the biggest flaw in the system below is how much wins are valued, as well as quality starts given that 6 innings and 3 ER is merely a 4.50 ERA. However, it hopefully will accomplish the goal of valuing starting pitching a great deal.

The point system in my league:

Single: 1 point
Double: 2 points
Triple: 3 points
Home Run: 4 points
Run: 0.5 points
RBI: 1 point
Walk: 1 point
Stolen Base: 1 point
Inning pitched: 1.5 points
Win: 16 points
Quality Start: 12 points
Save: 7 points
Complete Game: 4 points
Strike out: 1 point
Hit allowed: -1 point
Walk allowed: -1 point
earned run allowed: -3 points
Blown Save: -3 points
