When’s the last time the Braves had a better top of the order?
Today Acuna, Albies, and Freeman went 8/15, 4 HR, and 5 RBIs.

Wish we could get our bullpen right though

These last two games have been insane for those three. Absolutely scorching hot at the plate.

Could have been top four but Twins absolutely refused to pitch to Donaldson because he has mashed them over the years.

The answer to almost all best? or last time? offensive questions for the Braves seems to go back to 2003.

Order that year (based on who lined up the most throughout the year):

1. Furcal - .794 OPS
2. Giles - .917 OPS
3. Sheffield - 1.023 OPS ( )
4. Chipper - .920 OPS
5. A. Jones - .851 OPS
6. Fick - .753 OPS
7. Lopez - 1.065 OPS ( )
8. Castilla -.771 OPS

Average OPS for the main 8 position players that year (not based on ABs but just averaging all 8 players equally) was .887 which is absolutely ridiculous! To put in perspective Acuna has been a stud this year and his OPS is .890. pretty close to the average of the Braves 8 main position players in 2013.
