See if you can dangle him for someone like Ichiro. That would let you cut Tavaras or Cameron and troll the waiver wire for a little power.
Since it's a shallow league, not sure I'd want to carry a guy like Stewart unless he's playing every day. You're also carrying a lot of insurance (Putz, Arredondo, Beimel, Dotel) and you might consider kicking one to the curb (I'd probably kick Beimel...even if he did take the job of closer from Hanrahan, the save opps will be few and fare in between, plus the WHIP is kind of high for a pure middle man...either that or Putz, since K-Rod isn't exactly an injury risk) for another starter or bat.
Just my .02. Good luck!

I'd try to trade Delgado before Morneau. He'll bring back less but I don't trust a full year of Delgado.

The main reason I suggested moving Morneau over Delgado is because you'll get more for him. If Delgado was hanging around waiting for you to snatch him during the draft, you might be hard pressed to find a trade partner to give you what you want.
Plus, and this is just my opinion, I think Morneau is a tad overrated. He's going in the 2nd/3rd round of most drafts, but I'd be perfectly comfortable with several first basemen who are going well after him (Adrian Gonzalez, Garrett Atkins, Joey Votto etc).
Given that someone else in your league is likely to love Morneau too, players like Carlos Quentin, Matt Holliday, Nick Markakis or perhaps even Carlos Beltran could come in return. For Delgado, at best, you're probably looking at returns in the form of Raul Ibanez, Johnny Damon and Brad Hawpe. You might find little more than a Pat Burrell or a Xavier Nady too. Opinions on Delgado seem to vary wildly this year, but the guy is only 36 and he's hit at least 30 homers every season for 12 of the last 13 years.
I like the Meche pick up, by the way. His horrible start disguised what wound up being a very good year. The Royals should be better, so 15W and 175K seem like good guesstimates.
