In a team 10 league, $44 is very reasonable for Braun.

I like all 3. Beachy is a nice value, so is Kimbrel. But in a 10 tm mixed, Braun is a bargain at that price being a top 3 player.
I'd go with Braun.

I think you have to pay the hefty cost and keep Braun

I would keep Braun. Not so much for business reasons, just his offense.

keep Braun but Switch Kimbrel in for Bumgarner. Bum's is nice but Kimbrels is the best closer in the game.

No way that I could throw a 21 year old back that is coming off a 8.4 K/9 with 200 innings away for any closer. Not to mention that Bumgarner pitches in the NL West.

I'd absolutely say Braun. No question, in my mind.

Braun. Keeper auction leagues always tend to inflate the top end players as the years progress. Depending on the exact salary structure of the league he is probably worth keeping until he gets close to $60.
