How does the scoring below work? If my team wins the HR category, do I receive a total of 5 points, or do I receive 5 points for each HR?

6IP * 2
3ER * -.5
5K * 2
1W * 5
= 12 - 1.5 + 10 + 5
= 25.5 points
Basically instead of having to keep track of 5 categories, the point system condenses them into one number. The points that your players get for you are all added up and at the end of the week whoever has the most amount of points wins the matchup.
To be honest, that's a weird looking league. Based on the rules I'd say you want strikeout pitchers (a larger ERA won't matter as much with a penalty of only -.5 for each ER). Saves are also super-valuable in your league, so you should get a ton of points for simply having a squadron of closers, again with an emphasis on strikeouts.
As for batters, go ALL power-hitters. HRs are worth a ridiculous amount of points in your league. For a solo homer you get 4 + 2 + .5 + 2 = 8.5 points, and 14.5 points for grand slams, since when you hit a HR, it doesn't only increase 4 points, but a HR also count as a hit, it also gets at least one RBI, and your batter also scores a run. That all adds up.

Yeah, I'm not too keen on the categories. But I've never played in a H2H points league. I'm not sure that I like that there is such an emphasis on Wins and Saves. I may ask the commissioner are using Quality Starts instead.
