2. Ozzie Albies Setting the Table or Just Doing it all Himself 

There are not enough adjectives to be able to describe just how good Ozzie Albies is at baseball. The young second baseman is turning into a star. All of baseball is starting to pay attention to what he is doing so far for the first place Braves.

Albies has hit 13 homers and has racked up 55 hits so far for the team. He has so many intangibles that cannot be measured in stats. The way he runs the bases or fires up his team is rare and fun to watch.

Dansby Swanson, Ronald Acuna Jr., and Albies form a fun and youthful trio who feed off of one another and the results are telling.

Ozzie is going to be the Braves second baseman for many years to come. His ability to hit and work counts at his young age is remarkable. Add in his great defense and the Braves have a future franchise player in Ozzie Albies.

Albies is another Braves player with MVP potential. Potential that will keep Braves fans tuning in every night to watch this young team. A young team who knows how to do what most young teams struggle with, winning.
