The best pitchers actually end up outscoring the best hitters. With five SPs starting every week, those top SPs are plenty valuable.
If you tend to value pitching and would like to be in a points-based league that values quality pitcher, you can play with the points awarded for each event till it follows your methodology. That's the beauty of points leagues: you can tweak till your heart's content.

I like how just about every positive thing a player does gets some points for my team. A week in h2h points feels more like a 'real' game to me. I like when it's late on Sunday and there's only a few points separating the 2 teams. Every hit, walk, strikeout, stolen base, etc. matters. If I need 5 points, anyone on my team has a chance of getting that.
