Marcell Ozuna continues his unbelievable 2024

Praising Marcell Ozuna is becoming a staple of these series recap articles and for very good reason. I wasn't going to originally talk about Ozuna again, but he did something on Sunday night that made it hard not to mention.

It genuinely shocked me when ESPN flashed up the graphic after his second RBI single of the night, two of the three RBIs for the Braves in the game, that with his MLB-leading 40th RBI, Ozuna is now the fastest Brave to reach that mark since Hank Aaron.

Hank Aaron is in my very biased opinion, the greatest baseball player of all time, and praising Ozuna before was all fine and dandy, he's having a fantastic season with an OPS at 1.032 on the year. He had a hit in every game this series, and multiple hits the last two nights.

But now we are throwing around Hammerin' Hank's name? He's in that company? Now it's serious.

He's still on the shortlist for early-season NL MVP candidates and if he keeps putting himself in conversation with Hank Aaron, it's going to be hard to deny him that honor come season's end.

However, there is still a long way to go.
