Can Washington Nationals superstar Bryce Harper break Roger Maris’ single-season record of 61 home runs in 2013?

Bryce Harper will sacrifice blood to become a legend on the diamond.

With seven dingers in 74 appearances at the plate, Washington Nationals wunderkind Bryce Harper seems destined to cleanly challenge Roger Maris’ single-season record of 61 home runs.

Technically, Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa and Barry Bonds have already surpassed Maris’ mark.

However, considering the trio of McGwire, Sosa and Bonds used enough performance-enhancing drugs to give Secretariat a dirt nap, the former Yankees great remains the legitimate titleholder.

The 20-year-old Harper, an All-Star and National League Rookie of the Year award winner in 2012, added 10 pounds of muscle in the offseason and may overtake flamethrower Vida Blue as the youngest MVP in MLB history this autumn.

Batting .351 with 15 RBI over 20 games, the first overall pick in the 2010 draft is currently on pace to go yard roughly 62 times.

Although considered a cocky and malignant bat cave by many onlookers, pundits and critics, absolutely nothing indicates that the 6-foot-3, 230 pound Harper is a juicehead.

Provided the stud continues avoiding drugs, alcohol and groupie muff, Harper has an opportunity to establish numerous achievements in 2013.

Most importantly, Bryce Harper has a chance to return dignity to America’s pastime while playing in “The District.”
