John and Hugh discuss the Braves and what happened this weekend against the Pirates.  They discuss the latest in the legend Ronald Acuna.  “He doesn’t hit homers.  He hits bombs.  There is absolutely no question anymore who’s the rookie of the year.  In fact you can argue he should be in the MVP discussion.”  John says he’s the runaway rookie of the year and this isn’t even a conversation anymore.  John says the last two months Acuna clearly has been the MVP of this Braves team.  Hugh says he thinks Freddie Freeman is still the most consistent and leans towards him as being the MVP of this team.  John says he doesn’t think Acuna’s recent tear is just a hot streak for Acuna, but he thinks this is going to be the norm in term of the kid of daily performances you are going to get from him.  ​
