Hang onto Morrow for now. If I were to drop anyone right now, it'd be Wandy Rodriguez.
To answer your question about adding a speedster, you could use the steals. If there is a solid/quality option available still, add him with the intent of getting them consistent starts early on. (I could see you falling behind in steals early on if you don't.) Otherwise you look good.
I like it. Good power, solid pitching staff with a lot of young arms. I think Gallardo is going to have a huge year and solidify himself as a top 10 SP. Shin-Soo Choo is set to have a big year as well. Dropping morrow for another reliever would be a bad decision, especially when it seems as though you already have 2 solid ones with devine being a great third option. Plus starting pitching is much more important.
all around, solid keeper team. Lots of upside.

I'd target crawford as most people might sell low on him this year because of his crap numbers last yr due to injury, if you can land a quality SB producer I think you can become all that much better. If you could check out mine that'd be great: viewtopic.php?t=371476
First thing i noticed is also a lack of speed. SP looks good, except Morrow and Wandy im not big on either. RP look great you will do well there. OF looks good as well, maybe trade one for a speedster, or go cheap for Taveras. Even a bench speedster will work, because you can always play him for a week and get back in the SB game. Overall, you got the scarce positions covered, and that goes a long ways in roto. GL.
Keepers look like Hanley/Teixeira/Soriano? All are solid, though you might want to deal Soriano for a better long-term bet. I'd definitely drop Wandy instead of Morrow, who could be a Joba-like starter.
I'm not high on Loney at all. Maybe see if you can upgrade 3B (maybe in a package with Soriano to get a keeper worthy one plus replacement OF?).
#1 trade Pat Burrell for a 20-20 guy who hits .270. The move i would make with your lineup (if you're looking for steals) is to drop Cruz and pick up Furcal. He can steal 25-30 bases if healthy...nice U option for SB. Don't know if he's available though. Carmona is a bust...drop him now for one of the Minnesota guys (Baker, Slowey, Perkins)...beasts at home last year and should improve on the road. Wandy is good at home and is "getting better" on the road...could be a nice sleeper with Valverde closing out his games now. Hope this helps! Check out my post...
Whoa, sorry for the late response. Honestly thought that I was done getting reply's to my thread. Looks like everyone's covered all of your bases, but out of curiosity, what speedsters are left on your WW? Only saw tavaris as a suggestion. Any others in your league worth looking at?
