(had a lot of stinkers, but easily was fixable, that's the beauty of not valuing expensive bats). Notice my complete commitment to the sweeney plan. You can't half ass the strategy early on. You have to take the plunge if you're going to do it. OFs every single year are absolutely overvalued, I never understand why anyone drafts an OF before rd10.

Ohlendorf is not rosterable, but currently just a free spot I use to stream offense or pitching when needed.
Also, to show my completely commitment to the Sweeney strategy, here are the Offensive and Pitching total stats for the season thus far:
Offense (my team is the one blacked out all the way at the bottom): http://imgur.com/gs7ujHu
(you'll have to rank the teams by totals, I only posted 1 snap shot since it would be far too many pics to post the sorted category for each stat).

This is literally how my teams have performed for the past 3 years--dead last in HRs and RBIs, 1st in steals, and in the bottom half for runs while finishing near the top in almost
every pitching category. It's proven to be resilient and consistent. It's why the league might blow up and move to a total points base league. The sweeney plan exploits the inhenrent flaw of 5x5---namely the fact that things like OBP/AVG and SBs are equal in worthiness to a HR.
