Baseball enters the last week of the opening month, and perhaps the game's best player shined. The Washington Nationals Bryce Harper lit the National League East on fire, on the way to what might be his second MVP in three seasons. The Nationals marched through Georgia and Queens with a 6-0 record, establishing themselves as the team to beat in the East. Harper led the Nats batting 11-20, with 7 of those 11 hits for extra bases (4 2B, 3 HR). He also scored 10 of his teams 33 runs over the six game span. The Nationals ended the week with the best record in baseball, and it might be time that Bryce is mentioned as the top of MLB elite. For the second time in blog history, he is a worthy Sportsman of the Week!
