This article at BP takes a look whether faster players can cause errors, with their speed since infielders will rush their throws to beat the runner. It is a free article so all can read it.

So can I take the article to, in summary, argue that speed isn't important?

All I need to know about speed is that the Florida Marlins won the World Series with Pierre and Castillo at the top of the lineup. They nicely balanced speed, average, power, defense and good pitching.
