Help with my scoring

Postby jrockwell72 » Tue Mar 01, 2011 1:06 pm

I've been playing fantasy baseball for a few years, and have always preferred H2H points leagues. However, Ive always felt that defense has been lacking, and I have created my own league amongst friends. I am looking for inputs on how to improve the scoring, or if there is really anything I am overlooking when setting this up.

We are a 12 team league, with 40 man rosters, 25 players start each matchup.

Here is the scoring:

Thanks a ton.

Can't speak to your defensive cats, but you're very generous to your SP's. A 6-inning win where you give up 2 runs, 4 hits, 2 walks, and strike out 4 nets you:

1 for the game
18 for the innings
7 for the QS
10 for the win
12 for the K's
-8 for the runs/walks/hits

That's 40 points from a mediocre performance. 2/3 of any decent SP staff should deliver those numbers, so you're looking at your #3 guy giving you 80 points on a 2-start week. Maybe I'm underestimating Put Outs, but I have trouble seeing any but the elite bats putting up 40+ for more than a couple streaky weeks.

Well I looked at the stats from 2010 using these categories and heres what you get:

The top 25 batters average 14-18 per game (Pujols was highest as he is a 1B with 18.9)
The top 25 pitchers average between 36-47 (Halladay had 52.7)

I tried to increase the scoring for pitchers because with batters getting points for defense, hitters are definitely going to be much more favored than pitchers. I had actually considered changing the loss from -10, to -5.

Yeah, I checked the stats, and PO contributes a crazy amount- thing is, it's too slanted toward 1B. The top 20 guys in this stat are all 1B, then a pretty big step to all the C's, then another big step to CF, then a HUGE step toward everyone else. You also have weird skews like:

Daric Barton was #2 in 2010 with 1404 PO's (Pujols had 1458).
Lyle Overbay was 4th with 1310.
Miguel Cabrera was 10th with 1218.
Troy Glaus was 20th with 977.

Those are already huge point margins.
