The Phillies currently have the best record in not only the National League but the best overall in the MLB right now. With 39 wins and 18 losses, this team has been unstoppable. Trea Turner and Alec Bohm have played a big part in the Phillies' success so far. Turner has a batting average of .343 and Bohm has an average of .308. Another player who has been great so far is Bryce Harper- with 13 home runs, 42 RBIs, and an average of .266. 

Atlanta Braves: 

The Braves have been doing well this season with a record of 31-22. Marcell Ozuna and Ronald Acuña Jr. have been killing it. Ozuna has had 60 hits for his 195 at-bats and has an OPS of .994. Acuña has just had a season ending injury with a torn ACL so fans will not get to see him continue on this season. He already had 16 stolen bases and 48 hits. Chris Sale has been doing great pitching for the Braves, he has one of the lowest ERAs on the team. 

Washington Nationals:

The Nationals have had a decent start to the 2024 season. They have won 25 games and lost 29. CJ Abrams has been doing well for the team, getting in hits and RBIs. The Nationals have a combined 47 home runs and a batting average of .232. If the team starts to get more hits in, fans can see them improve more.

New York Mets:

The Mets have started the season off with 22 wins and 33 losses- definitely not the way they would have hoped to to start the season. Starling Marte has helped the team with 27 runs and a batting average of .262. However, the Mets definitely have some improvements they should make pitching-wise to get a lower ERA. 

Miami Marlins:

The Marlins have had a rough start to their year. They have won 20 games and lost 37. In the beginning of May, they traded Luis Arráez to the Padres, which lost them their best player. Bryan De La Cruz has been pulling a lot of the weight for the team. He has the highest batting average and home runs for the Marlins. De La Cruz and Jazz Chisholm Jr. are tied for most runs at 27.
