There are few positions that are both more fun – while simultaneously difficult – to breakdown than first base. It is annually the home many of the most impressive hitters in the game, and limiting that assessment to simply a top 10 ensures there will be some impact players left on the outside.

Freddie Freeman’s Delicate Balance of Power and Contact

Last week, I wrote about the dearth of production at the first-base position this season. In the piece, I highlighted Wil Myers as one of the few, young beacons of hope at the position and mentioned a few other young stars, but there was one notable guy I failed to mention: the Braves’ sole star-caliber position player, 26-year-old first baseman Freddie Freeman.
