AL MVP race: Gunnar Henderson among top players through end of April

Until Gunnar Henderson won the Rookie of the Year Award a year ago, it had been more than 30 years since any Orioles player won one of the “big three” BBWAA awards, also including Cy Young (1980, Steve Stone) and MVP (1991, Cal Ripken Jr.) The ROY drought may have been broken, but you know what? It would still be fun to see an Oriole win one of these others some day.

Obviously, the most important drought to end is the franchise’s not having won a World Series within the lifetime of anybody who’s 40 years old or younger.
