Standings - Customization for Ranking teams

I have been running mens softball leagues for over 10 years. I understand your standings are ranked like MLB. W-L-Pct then Run Differential (runs scored minus runs allowed). I changed the runs differential tie breaker several years ago to just Runs Allowed. In mens softball this avoids or discourages teams from running up the score. Example in your standings a team wants to win by as many runs as possible so if playing a bad team will try to win 50-0 and not get outs. Since I have changed to the Runs allowed criteria after W-L-Pct teams with a 25 run lead (25-0) in a game are willing to make outs and end game. Avoids arguments possible fights etc..... No one likes a team up by 40 runs to continue to run out home runs or extra bases....This has been a rule in my league for a LONG TIME....I REALLY NEED THIS ABILITY
