5 Reasons Bryce Harper Will Go for 30 HR, 100 RBI in 2013

Bryce Harper's rookie season wasn't incredible, but it was certainly good enough to earn him the National League Rookie of the Year Award.

He hit a modest .270/.340/.477, with 22 home runs and 59 RBI. He also stole 18 bases and recorded nine triples.

Harper has all the talent in the world and has the potential to break out in a big way in 2013. Should he stay healthy, there's no reason to believe otherwise.

With a full season of experience under his belt, Harper will adjust to major league pitching and have a monster season.

Over 30 home runs and 100 RBI is a real possibility for the young slugger. Those numbers, aside from being a huge boost to the Washington Nationals' lineup, would also put his name in the National League MVP discussion.

While I'm not predicting that he'll win the award, I am predicting that he will have that type of a season. He's just too talented to have another mediocre season.
