MLB is releasing an “I Play” campaign, where various league stars talk about why they play. Bryce Harper’s is above, and he has some pretty solid reasons.

“I play for the ‘W’ on my hat. And 95 more in the win column. I play for the pennants waiting to be hung, and the Nationals red pumping through my veins. I play for the warrior inside and out. I play for October.”

We should totally start an “I Blog” campaign. The reasons would be very different from Harper’s. Although I do write for the warrior inside and out.

Harper also appears in an opening day spot, adding, “I play for nine guys playing as one” to his list of reasons. And of course, in both ads he’s sporting his trademark focused look. “Blue Steel” ain’t got nothing on “Harper Intense.”
