Your wallet's ETH balance (2.098 ETH) is not enough to cover the gas cost (Ethereum network fee). EtherDelta sends 62.5 ETH with each transaction. This is an overestimate and the excess will get refunded to you. It's a good idea to send more than 62.5 so you can pay for not only this transaction, but also future transactions you do on EtherDelta. The gas has to come directly from your Wallet (EtherDelta has no physical way of paying gas from your deposited ETH).
So is this telling me I need to have more ETH on their site. Lol What is a typical Gas Cost?
EtherDelta (ED), while being a decentralized exchange, is about the most non-user friendly exchange I've ever used. I only use it in conjunction with Meta-Mask as that method involves signing each transaction. May I ask why you chose EtherDelta? The ETH network is a pain in the azz right now.
Here are 2 websites to help you estimate how much gas you need on the ETH network:
And here is Heidi demonstrating how to use ED:
