3. Bryce Harper will win National League MVP

If Harper stays healthy this has a high likelihood of happening. Last year Harper hit nine homers in the first month of the season. He crushed the ball all month and then… he got hurt. When he came back he looked hurt. He wasn’t hitting, and looked to be in pain a lot of the time. Sure he’s competing with guys like Paul Goldschmidt, but Bryce has all the tools he needs to get his first MVP.
