"The Braves won their 100th game last night, and that doesn’t really tell the tale of how good they are right now. They were 22-24 through May 27, having had Ronald Acuña Jr. for just about a month and getting by with a number of poorly-equipped center fielders. In advance of a Saturday afternoon contest with the Marlins, they called up an outfielder with just two months’ experience above A ball, Michael Harris, and they’ve been damn near the best team in baseball since then."
