Will the real Bryce Harper please stand up? Meet the MVP’s look-alikes.

Maybe there’s a perfectly good explanation for why Bryce Harper hasn’t resembled the player who won the National League MVP in 2015 while hitting .197 this month. Maybe Bryce Harper isn’t really Bryce Harper. Maybe the Mets or Marlins kidnapped the Nationals right fielder and replaced him with one of his many (okay, at least two) doppelgangers. Like […]
