Last week I was thrilled to talk to the 2015 National League MVP Bryce Harper (on Skype of all places). He's on the cover of Topps Baseball Series 1 card boxes that went out last week. He was very frank and up front about the Nationals' disappointments, & his confrontation with Jonathan Papelbon. My favorite part of the interview was when I discussed Washington's new manager, Dusty Baker. Off the air, I talked with Harper about the fact that Dusty gave the eulogy at Darryl's funeral last year. We also aired this as a segment on my NBC show Sunday night. Feel free to play the interview right here on Facebook, or download the podcast here:
I have had MVP's on this show in the past. Ken Griffey Jr. was an MVP. Eli Manning was a Super Bowl MVP. This is the 1st time a REIGNING MVP came on Sports with Friends.
Bryce is a 2016 Topps Ambassador and the most popular choice amongst National players. He graces the cover of Topps Baseball Series 1 card boxes that went out this week . Fans voted on the top players across MLB to be featured in this year’s set for the first time. He was on hand to introduce the 2016 Topps® Baseball Series 1 cards and discuss 65 Years of Topps cards and their value in today’s marketplace.
