I'm struggling with this....I play in an OBP league...I'm punting power(HR, RBI) playing to win Hits, Runs, SB, OBP....projections say stick with Revere but I know Souza has tremendous talent/potential & we have seen that so far with Souza out playing Revere....I have plenty of other SB sources plus Souza himself could steal 20 bags this year...should I bite the bullet and make the move?

They are trending in opposite directions so if you don't need the SB and can take a hit in avg, then it's not too risky of a move. We still have Revere batting at the top of the order for much of the season, but he's been batting at the bottom the last few games.  Souza has stuck at #2 all year so there's a little more stability with him too.

my league doesn't use avg...only OBP...does that sway you more onto Souza? I just figure if Sousa can get me 20 SB(totally possible) the rest of my speed can make up for roughly net 20 SB loss of dropping Revere

It looks like they have about the same OBP which helps. Souza has 3 SB in the last 4 games so 20 looks safe.
