My mistake, I meant 12 team or less.

The fact that your OF has worked well so far is pretty insignificant. The season is hardly a week old.

To prove my point, consider the top 10 leaders in BA:

J. Lopez
Lo Duca
Beltre
Hidalgo
Giles
Lankford
Belliard
J. Cruz
C. Johnson
C. Pena

Or the top 10 HR leaders:

Rolen
Pujols
Hafner
Dunn
Piazza
C. Johnson
Posada
Ordonez
Hidalgo
Ortiz

Some names will still be there at the end of the season. Some will not.

I'm not trying to be harsh, but I would try and upgrade that OF and get some SP if you want a shot at winning those leagues. If the goal is simply to try and experiment with a strategy, then I'd try to do some 2-for-1's and upgrade your offense. Try and get Nomar, for example. It's imperative that you finish in the top 3 (at least) in every offensive category if you want a chance to make this strategy work - and I think it could give you a competitive team. Good luck! Keep us up to date!
