First thing I noticed is that it's extremely balanced, the top hitters and pitchers all accumulated about the same amount of points, and through the top 30 of last year for each hitters and pitchers, it's well balanced. My only gripe is the scoring would be low (realistic, but low), I guess baseball scoring is low but in my leagues I like a lot of points and I messed around with multiplying each stat by 4 (to leave the same balance, but just increase points).
This worked as well, instead of the top batter getting 170 season points, he got about 700 (so instead of say under 10 pts per week he would get 30+ per week)... I guess it all depends on your preference. I do like this system alot, there's obviously a lot went into this system, I'm still trying to wrap my head around weekly matchups - say for pitchers who go two starts, maybe they total 15 innings = that's alot of points per inning (if your scoring 1 per or 4 per if you increased it), but the balance with runs/hits/walks works out... maybe i'll try slimming it down to multiply by 3.
Looking at Verlanders first week last year, with 2 starts = he would get 12 points (off 16 innings, 6 hits, 4 er, 3 bb and 14 k's). Looking at Cabrera's first week, he would get 15 points (off 33 abs, 7 runs, 3 homers, 9 rbi, 6 bb, 5 so)
They are both pretty good weeks, I know its a small sample but I'm just looking to compare this system.

Posey had 78 runs, 24 homers, 103 rbi (with a .333 avg) = about 446 points (standard) and 433 (decimal). Which ranked him 21st among hitters in the standard scoring, and 7th overall in the decimal scoring. He wound up with more points for hits then taking away for AB's (534 to 477) which relates to his batting average in real life. He also had 39 doubles and 69 walks to increase his value.
Rollins has 102 runs, 23 HR, 68 rbi...plus 30 steals. (with a .250 avg) = about 461 points (standard) and 287 (decimal). This is a big drop off, Rollins ranked 18th in standard but fell to 40th in decimal scoring. Most likely due to his poor average and low rbi - he did have 33 doubles and 60 walks.
In summary of these first two... Rollins ranked higher than Posey in Standard scoring, even though his avg. was .250 compared to Posey's .333 - they had about the same amount of runs/rbi total... but Rollins sneaks in the 30 steals. So in standard scoring, 30 steals weighed more then 80 points in average... that's unrealistic.
Just to prove Rollins should in fact be ranked near the 40th instead of inside the top 20... here's Hamilton's numbers - and Rollins and Hamilton ranked close in standard. So by this comparison...
Hamilton had 103 runs, 43 HR, 128 RBI.... with .250 average (7 steals and 31 doubles) = he ranked 15th in standard and 10th in decimal. But in the standard league, Rollins was right under Hamilton's = 230 total runs/rbi and 40+ homeruns
Rollins had a decent year, but he should be ranked near Pagan (95 runs, 8 homers, 29 steals, .287 avg) not Hamilton (103 runs, 43 HR, 128 RBI)
