Where do you see speed? Phillips, Wright and Hart should be good for 60-70 SBs...then what? That team will be hard pressed to wrack up 80 SBs unless Phillips decides to go nuts or something. Jose Reyes will likely get 60 by himself. Ad din all the other 30+ guys in the league. There are a lot of sbs out there and under 100 is not going to get it done even with a 9/9 lineup imo. I would not worry about it if it wasn't for the avg potentially being a problem as well.
Ah, predictable 'ol Boomer. You always have the habit of drafting Phillips, Dunn, and Hart while leaving your pitching a bit barren.
It's a good team, but you should upgrade your pitching some. I like Verlander to bounce back, but not enough to make him a #2 on my staff. Chris R. Young is another guy I'm lukewarm on in general, more or less because his pitching at Petco masks his sub-par away splits, which is OK for roto, but in H2H, I'm passing on.
Seeing how this is an OPS league, I'd shop Dunn for a slightly better return than what you can get in standard 5x5. Dunn is a good bet for a .900+ OPS, but again, that doesn't matter much in H2H when Dunn is prone to peaks and valleys. You should be getting a good #1-2 out of Dunn though.
Traded for Kemp. Send Felix and Bruce off for Kemp and Floyd. I know this makes my pitching even worse, but early in the season I'm working deals to get best players available. Worry about the rest later.
I don't like that trade, even more so if your league rewards keeping later round picks. In any case, trading a 23 y/o Felix for a .261 BABIP wonder is a serious risk, esp. concidering the disparity between their home parks. As far as Kemp goes, theres no question that your right about being the best player in the trade, and he does adress your need for steals, even for the loss of a potential 25-39/10-15 guy. I think though, that the loss on the pitching side of the ledger more than offsets the potential gain on the other side. I hope it works for you though, good luck.
That trade really killed your pitching, You can have 2 stud SP and fill in the rest with players like Floyd,Maine and Danks, but your best pitcher is Verlander (?) and Young(huge injury risk) and both are mid level starters to begin with, It will be hard to overcome that, I would package CB Young and Holliday (selll high on him while he has value, remember he is out Colorado and playing in a pitchers park in Oakland, so stats like .280-.290 28 hrs and 15 sbs are more likely) for a player like Peavy,Oswalt,Webb,Santanta,or Lincecum type.
