There is not another team like the Atlanta Braves in MLB this season.
The Baltimore Orioles are incredibly young and talented, and the Los Angeles Dodgers have two true superstars in Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman.
However, the Braves have perhaps the best and deepest collection of offensive talent the league has seen in a while.
Their lineup boasts MVP candidates Ronald Acuna Jr. and Matt Olson, and is complemented by talented and accomplished hitters such as Sean Murphy, Travis d’Arnaud, Orlando Arcia, Ozzie Albies, Austin Riley, Marcell Ozuna, Eddie Rosario, and Michael Harris II.
This offensive group has made sure the Braves remain firmly entrenched at the top spot of MLB’s power rankings.

Atlanta proved its worth by going to Los Angeles last weekend and taking three out of four games against the mighty Dodgers.
They are the firm favorites to win the World Series at the moment, but anything can happen in the playoffs.
Every other team in the top ten of the power rankings has arguments to at least compete in a short series, though.
The playoffs are right around the corner, and we are about to see what all these teams are made of.
