The Atlanta Braves have been the best team in baseball throughout June.
They have a 20-4 record in the month and continue to dominate every team they come up against.
One reason the Braves have been so good this season is because their roster is elite.
They have All-Star players all over the lineup and even have a Cy Young candidate in their rotation.
It is safe to say the Braves are the best team in baseball this year.
According to MLB on Twitter, the Braves have surpassed the Rays for the best win percentage in baseball.

They have a record of 53-27 and have opened up a 6.5-game lead over the Miami Marlins in the NL East.
When looking at their roster the first player that has to be mentioned is Ronald Acuna Jr.
He is the favorite for NL MVP and has been on a record-breaking pace this year.
Acuna is batting .331 on the season with 19 home runs, 51 RBI, and 36 stolen bases.
He leads the National League in steals, slugging percentage, OPS, and total bases, while also leading MLB in runs scored with 71.
Acuna has been doing it all for the Braves and they would be nowhere near as good without him.
Other players having big seasons in Atlanta are Matt Olson, Ozzie Albies, and Spencer Strider.
Olson leads the NL in home runs (26) and RBI (62), while Albies is second in RBI with 56.
Strider is a contender for NL Cy Young and he is the best strikeout pitcher in the sport.
This Braves team has everything you look for in a serious World Series contender and that is where they are headed.NEXT: The Braves Stand Alone With Elite Mark In June
