There have been many great individual seasons throughout MLB history.
We have seen two 70+ homer years, and seen many seasons with 100+ stolen bases.
But we can rarely find someone who can do both at an elite level.
It appears there is finally someone ready to set MLB history.
That is Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr.
According to MLB Network, Acuna is on the doorstep of more history.
He has 39 home runs and 67 stolen bases on the year.

Acuna was the first player in MLB history with a 30/60 season.
Now he wants to be the first to achieve 40/70.
For a while, it was a tight race between Acuna and Mookie Betts for NL MVP.
But Acuna has since pulled away and he should be named MVP this year.
Not only is he having a rare statistical season, but the Braves are also the best team in the NL.
Everything seems to be playing out perfectly for the 25-year-old outfielder this season.
We have always known that Acuna has a rare skillset.
But, years of injury cost him multiple chances to show what he could do.
Seeing him out there for this full season goes to show that he is unlike anyone we have ever seen in MLB.
It will be interesting to see what the Braves do in the postseason.
Last year, they had a great regular season and lost in the NLDS to the Phillies.
This year there are no excuses for the Braves not to reach the Fall Classic.NEXT: The Braves Tied Powerful History Over The Weekend
