Yes steals can be had on the cheap late: Crisp, Pierre, Boni, Davis, Gardner, etc all should be available toward the end of the draft.

I go Miggy #1 so I go miggy here. 3B and his consistency seals the deal

Ditto. Why would you want to deal with Braun and any concerns about PEDs if you can have MCab, put him at 3b and sit back and enjoy? The early rounds are often about risk avoidance and getting the production relative to the draft position and MCAB is about as safe a pick as there is in fantasy baseball.

your league uses triples for some reason as a category. So few are hit that you have to take Braun and I dont think its even close

I think people worry too much about early picks, you'll be fine either way.

If you're worried about the PED allegations against Braun, take Cabrera since he's about as sure a thing as there is this year. If you're not overly concerned about the PED allegations and you want some steals take Braun. I don't think group theory here helps you, you're ultimately the one that has to live with the pick.
