Hello all.

I am the commissioner of a 10 team ESPN H2H league.

Last year, the league was 12 teams and there were complaints the entire season about how a good pitcher scored way more than a good batter. In ESPN normal fantasy leagues, a win would get your pitcher 10 points added to their total.

I was thinking about changing it to 5 (and keeping it at -5 for a loss).

Now I read on ESPN that although the top pitchers heavily outscored the top batters, when you moved down the rankings, they would eventually even out and the batters would then score more. However, if it's changed to 5 points for a win, the top SPs would still heavily outscore the top batters, but the batters would pass the pitchers much sooner and pitchers drafted in late rounds (18+) would contribute next to nothing.

Here's the scoring I have it set at right now. Please let me know what you think. Currently it's set to 13 categories for pitching and 13 for batting (26 total).

Batting

1B Singles: 1 point

2B Doubles: 2 points

3B Triples: 3 points

HR Home Runs: 4 points

TB Total Bases: 1 point

BB Walks: 1 point

R Runs Scored: 1 point

RBI Runs Batted In: 1 point

SB Stolen Bases: 1 point

K Strikeouts: -1 point

GWRBI Game Winning RBI: 3 points

CYC Hitting for the Cycle: 12 points

GSHR Grand Slam Home Runs: 5 points

Pitching

IP Outs Recorded: 1 point

ER Earned Runs: -2 points

W Wins: 5 points

L Losses: -5 points

SV Saves: 5 points

BS Blown Saves: -3 points

K Strikeouts: 1 point

H Hits Allowed: -1 point

BB Walks Issued: -1 point

SO Shutouts: 5 points

HB Hit Batsmen: -2 points

NH No Hitters: 12 points

PG Perfect Games: 20 points

As you can see, batters can only lose points from a strikeout, but pitchers can lose points from a loss, blown save, walk, earned run, hit batsman, or a hit. But then also keep in mind that they can earn multiple points for an out (strikeout gets you 2 points b/c 1 for the K and the other for the actual out).
