It can be debated whether or not his power is legit, but IMO, it cannot be debated that he will hit 50+ homers again, he simply won't do it. I like Aram better than Bautista but that is just my opinion.
Bautista has better value than either Haren or A-Ram. Also, A-Ram has likely seen better days while Bautista is still a reasonable bet for 30-35 HR. Definitely worth keeping.
As for the last keeper, I'd narrow it down to Haren or Alexei. I'd likely go with Haren because Alexei's upside is a bit boring (20 HR/15 SB) which you can make up for to a certain degree with cheaper MI options. Haren didn't have a banner year by any stretch and still posted a solid K total, ERA, and WHIP. I expect more of the same and his ERA/WHIP to improve a bit.
