The Atlanta Braves have opened the 2013 season with the best record in all of baseball, taking up residence at the top of the National League East standings as a result.

After a winter spent making bold moves on both the free-agent and trade markets, this is exactly the kind of start that general manager Frank Wren and manager Fredi Gonzalez had envisioned.

The power displays have been frequent, while the pitching has been outstanding. Even injuries and slow starts from key performers have been unable to detract from the team's success.

Though the work is far from done, the early returns signal that the 94-win Atlanta club which came up four games short of a division title a season ago may be even better this time around.

This slideshow provides a look at the biggest surprises, both individual and collaborative, so far in 2013 season.
