It was around this time last year that young phenom Bryce Harper had truly made his mark in baseball; a year in which he made his first trip to the Major League All-Star game, and later, would solidify his case as the future of baseball by winning the Rookie of the Year award. In that same year, another young phenom arose in Anaheim, doing virtually the same thing as Harper, only better.
This year, Harper is an early favorite to win the MVP award. If he wins the award, he will join such names as Ryan Howard and Dustin Pedroia.
Similarly, Matt Harvey made his Major League debut back in late July, starting off his career with an eleven strikeout performance and two major league hits. This year, so far, he has taken two perfect games into the seventh inning, only to lose them on close calls. Harvey has already won the Pitcher of the Month award for April, and there is no telling how high is ceiling is now.
