Here are the men who will dominate the 2013 season and land well into the discussion for league MVP.
There will be some familiar names like the ones bandied about last year in Mike Trout and Andrew McCutchen. We just don’t buy into the hype that either is about to face a big regression this year.
However, we also have some kind things to say about Bryce Harper, who will most certainly build on a remarkable rookie season, and Jose Bautista, who is primed to come back from injury.
Join MLB Lead Writer Zachary Rymer and MLB Contributor Gabe Zaldivar as they break down the star players they feel warrant some attention as MVP candidates right before Opening Day.
Of course, this is just the start of a beautiful debate. There are so many brilliant players out there who deserve some recognition. Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
