That would be the opposite of normal points based leagues and penalizes the players for have good slugging. It's a penalty for each base they take.
Essentially with the current system, a single, double and triple are worth the same value.
I played around with the scoring a bit. My concern with the extra base hit scoring you propose was that it would weaken hitting stats in proportion to pitching stats too much. I plugged in different scoring formulas into the projections until I got to this. It's not perfect. I think K's are a little too emphasized right now. I'll revisit it next season.
In points based leagues, there was always a premium placed on starting pitchers. When I played, RJ, Schilling and Pedro were generally the top scorers and pretty easily over even Alex Rodriguez.
I personally think its impossible to balance pts leagues (positive or negative) with hitting and pitching, so IMO they should be kept separately and not compared on point values. Its your league of course, just my suggestion.
