How does rotisserie scoring work in fantasy baseball?

I've played fantasy sports for a long time, but this is my first year of playing fantasy baseball with a rotisserie scoring system. Can someone shed some light on this situation becuase I'm a little confused.

    In rotisserie, you are building stats. Every league has a list of stats that are "in play" for making points. For example, there are batting averages, home runs, RBIs, stolen bases, and runs scored for hitters; pitchers have generally wins, saves, ERA, strikeouts, and WHIP average. What you are trying to do is gain points by having the most of each category compared to all the teams in your league. So, if you had the most home runs in your league, you would receive, say ten points in a ten team league. If you had the second most home runs, it would be worth nine points. Your objective is to find a way to gain the most points by trying to place well in all the scoring categories. Some teams will have better pitching, and some may have more power or speed. You want to gain the most points total. A team with a good mix is the best way to go. You will hear "5 category player" which means that player does well in all of the categories they contribute, such as A-Rod because he hits for power, average, RBIs, and steals bases and scores runs. Keep checking the overall standings to see how your team places for the scoring categories, and make adjustments from waivers, trades, or lineup to increase you total score.

    this is for basketball, but the same princepal applies.

    For the rotisserie format, team totals are ranked from first to last in each of the statistical categories, and points are awarded in each category based on the season-to-date cumulative totals. For example, in a 10-team league, the team with the most season-to-date rebounds receives 10 points, the second-place team nine points, and so on through the last-place team with one point. In the case of a tie, the teams will split the points. (ex: Team A and Team B are tied for first place in rebounds. They would split the first- and second-place points, giving them each 9.5 points in the rebounds category
