Found March 22, 2013 on The Nats Blog:
Dave Nichols of District Sports Page organized the 2013 Washington Nationals rountable this year, where a few Nats bloggers (including me) were asked to make predictions about the coming season. It's a seven-part series, and I'll be crossposting the links here as well as my answers to each of the questions. In case you missed it, part one is available here. In part two, we talked about the expectations for Bryce Harper this upcoming season. You can check out the post and everyone's responses here, and here is what I wrote about on the subject: "I fully expect Bryce Harper to have an outstanding season, and one in which he may even be in MVP contention.  Do I think he’ll win the NL MVP in 2013? No. But I do think he’ll get enough votes to crack the top 10, and maybe even the top five. Harper will hit in the three spot this year, ahead of both Ryan Zimmerman and Adam LaRoche. He’ll have opportunities drive in runs and be driven in, which is infinitely important to those that vote for the MVP. Further, he has star power on a team that will be closely watched by national baseball writers all season long, so he’ll be acknowledged and not forgotten. Playing the corner outfield should allow him to stay more fresh throughout the year as well, so we can see the power that we’ve all come to expect from him."
