Could you clarify this bit please:
"For infantry to charge in the front of a pike block they have to set up the charge the turn before within range of any 'sleeves' of shot, so they would have a chance of being shot at and disordered. "
Unless I am missing something, you could start 18" away, roll three under your command and charge straight into a pike block without incurring any fire at all from sleeves of shot who could well be up to 6" from it and facing another direction, or have other priority targets.
To me this encourages people to go after the "mother ships" that the pike blocks appear to be.

Not a problem. In order to attempt a charge from 18'' you will have been in range of the enemy musket (range 18'') for at least one shooting phase which gives the opportunity of disorders/damage in the defending player's shooting phase....that is if they decide not to hedgehog (in which case they could still shoot but with less effect).
