My Scoring System

By your points system, if a player hits a grand slam, he is going to get a whopping 10 to 15 points? That's crazy. He cvould single-handily win a game.

Your system as a whole has too many points awarded. And odd enough, .5 for strikeouts is unfair. With your points system if you are going to go big, then the strikeouts should be worth a lot of help counteract a big day from a hitter. If a walk is -1 it's only fair a strikeout be at least +1. Maybe two?

If a win is positive 3, why is a loss just - 1? If you have a pitcher that wins a game, but two that lose games - and your opponent has 1 pitcher that wins....even though you also had a win, your two losses make you lose (in that situation).
