Looks okay to me. Not sure I'd pay Cliff Lee $30 with a $200 budget. Good chance you're not getting $9 of value from Morneu, either.

Looks OK to me. I probably wouldn't have paid 15% of my budget on Lee, and instead would have tried to get a lower tier ace, but that is just splitting hairs at this point.

I'd say you overpaid for Zimmerman, Lee, and Morneau. the other 4 all seem like good prices for you though.

I think you did fine. In a 20 team league, you are going to end up overpaying for some guys. You have some nice values and you have a number of studs which should help you. Time will tell whether they were good deals or not but I think you have a very nice group of guys for such a deep league.

You did not tell us about the 15 players you bought for 25 dollars> I anticipate that one is worse than the other. .
