Phillips, Hart and Werth should get you between 20-30 stolen bases each, but the rest of your team is completely devoid of speed. You have plenty of pop, I'm hoping Miggy and Morneau can counteract Napoli and Dye to help you out with your BA a bit.
Napoli hit .275 practically and Dye hit .300 almost. I'll take that any day of the week. AVG is not something I'm worried about on my team. I'm expecting something around .290-.300 which I think will place me way up there.
Speed-wise, yes, I am devoid in that department, which is why I'm targeting Fred Lewis in SF. He's slated to hit fifth in that lineup so I can see him giving me some good stats in RBI, Average, and hopefully some Stolen Bases.
Also, the owner of Denard Span just dropped him so I may pick up Span, only problem I have with Minny's OF is too many outfielders.
I also grabbed Napoli as trade bait, many catchers are either not going to be available (Wieters, Mauer, maybe Mcann because of the injury yesterday) so that I might be able to upgrade my outfield even more.

He'll at least help in the other categories, maybe not so much wins. Kawakami missed some time last season with a back injury, and he already missed a start because of shoulder fatigue, so you're going to have to keep an eye on him at least.
Kawakami? This is his first year in the MLB...are you referring to him playing in Japan last year?
And yes, I am aware of his arm fatigue issue this year, I view him as a #4 SP for me. I plan to hold onto him for the first half of the season until batters figure him out.
