Philadelphia Phillies legend says Bryce Harper is the NL MVP

Philadelphia Phillies legend Mike Schmidt says that current Phillies superstar Bryce Harper is the NL MVP this season.

It takes one to know one.

Schmidt is a three-time MVP, 12-time All-Star, 10-time Gold Glove, six-time Silver Slugger, World Series MVP and part of the 1980 World Series team, the first Phillies team to bring home the championship in franchise history. Two of his MVP seasons were back-to-back, in 1980 and 81.

All of that was done in 18 years with the Phillies, for whom he played his entire career. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame on his first ballot in 1995.
