I'm in the midst of setting up a HTH pts league and need some advice.The scoring settings for pitching will be pretty standard and are as follows :

IP_________3 pts

ER________-2 pts

Wins______10 pts

Losses____ -5 pts

Strikeouts__1 pt

Hits_______-1 pt

Walks______-1 pt

(saves______5 pts)

We haven't decided whether this will be a daily or weekly league yet, so this is a two-part question -

Daily : The daily league will have a max start limit of 7 per week. In order to eliminate fenceposting at the end of the week there will be a "per start penalty" for each start over the limit (teams total starts for the week - 7 x "per start penalty" = points deducted from teams score) Using the settings above, what would be a fair number for this penalty? 25? I'm getting differing opinions...

Weekly : In the weekly league, would be trying to tone down the importance of two-start pitchers and have a "two start penalty" (teams total number of two start pitchers x "two-start penalty" = points deducted from teams score). Again using the settings above , what would be a good number for this penalty ? Not looking to ELIMINATE two-start pitchers, just trying to prevent teams from using 2nd or 3rd-rate pitchers over 1st or 2nd-rate ones simply because the former has two starts that week -

thanks
