Pitching vs. Hitting based on Scoring Settings?

Postby bar1234 » Thu Mar 13, 2014 1:27 pm

My draft is coming up on Friday and based on my league scoring settings I was curious to know if pitchers are more important based on my scoring settings below. Please let me know if these scoring settings prioritize hitters or pitchers so I can draft accordingly. Thank you.

My league is a 10 team h2h points on cbs.

If I am reading this right, it is 3 points per inning pitched? That's an awful lot and would seem to really favor pitchers. Is this the first year of the league? If not, CBS actually adjusts previous years stat reports based on the current scoring method, so look at the 2013 stats for hitters and pitchers and see how they compare.

My league uses a very balanced hitting vs. pitching scoring system, so last year Mike Trout scored 647 points while Clayton Kershaw scored 649. If you can't get the stat reports from CBS, go get the stat lines for those two guys and crunch the numbers yourself. That should give you some insight.

If Kershaw got 3 points per inning in my league he'd have gotten 1121 points, almost double of Trout. If that really is the case in your league, I'd ask the commish if he's made a mistake and if he modeled this scoring system at all (which CBS commissioner sites do allow you to do).
