16 teams deep and 24 rounds... it was a very long draft. Here are the settings:

Stat Modifiers: R (1), H (1), 1B (1), 2B (2), 3B (3), HR (4), RBI (1), SF (1), SB (2), CS (-2), BB (1), HBP (1), K (-1), GIDP (-2), E (-2)

IP (3), W (10), L (-6), CG (10), SHO (10), SV (3), H (-1), ER (-1), HR (-2), BB (-1), HBP (-1), K (1), WP (-2), GIDP (2), HLD (1)

And now for my team:

C- Joe Mauer
1B- Prince Fielder
2B- Luis Castillo
3B- Edwin Encarnacion
SS- Troy Tulowitzski
IF- Adrian Gonzalez
OF- Grady Sizemore
OF- Josh Hamilton
OF- Michael Cuddyer
UTIL- David DeJesus
Bn- Joey Votto
Bn- Jarrod Saltalamacchia

SP- Scott Kazmir
SP- Rich Hill
SP- Jeff Francis
SP- Ubaldo Jimenez
SP- Gil Meche
RP- Jeremy Accardo
RP- Peter Moylan
P- Edinson Volquez
Bn- Ervin Santana
Bn- Carlos Villanueva
Bn- Chad Gaudin
Bn- Miguel Batista

Personally I love my offense, but I think I'm going to definitely need to find some pitching somehow or at least hope my sleeper guys pan out.

Anyways, thoughts from someone who has done a points based league before?

Hi Humn,

Nice to see someone involved in a points league!!! I'm in two roto leagues but wanted to get into a fantasy points league w/o success. To answer your question about your team; overall I thought you had a very nice draft with the exception of your relievers and even with that you can hopefully make trades to increase the value in your relief corps. Interesting to see on your point qualifyers in pitching that a loss is -6 points with a win being the standard 10pts. Most everywhere I have seen a loss is either -5 or -10. Your saves category has a +3 but no minus points for a blown save and a +1 for Holds but nothing happens again if the reliever blows the Hold? Interesting. Not necessarily right or wrong just curious about your (commissioner's) point system.

Since you drafted an abundant amount of players (24) and had 16 teams drafting, I think you had one heck of a draft overall. I look for Tulowitzki and Sizemore to have huge years and hope you get nice numbers from Edwin Encarnacion and Edinson Volquez!!! Josh Hamilton if he can remain healthy could have a monster year!!! What a great ST he has had so far!!!

Best of Luck,
Jerry/ Vada Pinson Fan

That's a solid lineup for a 16-team league. You could use some pitching help, but good pitching is pretty easy to find on waivers if you stay on top of it.

My points league just had its draft yesterday. We certainly could have used you!
