The Atlanta Braves have finished the 2023 regular season with the best record in baseball, the highest slugging percentage of all time, tied for the most team homers in a season, and led the world in every major offensive category. They have sixplayers who could legitimately win a Silver Slugger this year.

When you start combing through history, you realize the 2023 Braves had one of the best offensive seasons ever. On top of that, Ronald Acuna Jr. had one of the most dominant individual offensive performances of all time.

MLB.com released a list of the top 50 players in the postseason and only six Braves made the cut. Considering the Braves are just the second team to ever have five players with 30+ homers in a season and the team wRC+ is fourth-best all-time behind three Babe Ruth-led Yankees teams.

Three Braves players had 40 or more homers, a feat only accomplished by one team not in Colorado.
