There’s no keeping a lid on the Gunnar Henderson hype anymore

Wednesday afternoon’s rubber match against the Los Angeles Angels made one thing clear, in case it needed to be made clear: Gunnar Henderson is one of the best players in the game. Not only did the 22-year-old lefty reach base five times and hit a home run; he also made a spectacular defensive play at the toughest position on the diamond.

It’s this insane combination of power, speed and defense that makes Gunnar such a freak, and that makes his appearance on an early MVP frontrunner list feel not-so-ridiculous, even before a month has elapsed in the season.
