OT: Draft done - feedback please

I play in an AL-only 5x5 roto league with almost unlimited keepers (40-man rosters, and salary cap based on an online game, but unless you have the Yankees, you don't push that cap).  Categories are: AVG,OBP,HR,SB,RP and the usual 5 for pitchers.  

I traded 2009 picks for 2008 picks and drafted 14 extra players, so I have some cuts to make before the season begins.  We can draft anyone who has played AA or higher ever, but after the draft, players can only be picked up if they play in the bigs.  FA's such as Scott Linebrink and Alexei Ramirez were draft-eligible.  Players who come over in trade go to the team which had the players traded away.

Please comment on my draft picks, and which guys you'd think are easy cuts.  I don't really have team needs for 2008, per se, although my only saves guy is K-Rod, and I always want more SP.  Not that I'm going to win going away, but I should contend, and have a balanced lineup and pitching.
