The Washington Nationals won the 2019 World Series and will be competing for the prize in 2020 now that Stephen Strasburg is back on a new deal.

Strasburg was the World Series MVP and his dominant performances helped the Nationals pull off the upset. Major League Baseball produced a documentary on the series and the MVP seemed to think the footage was a bit biased toward the Houston Astros.

A documentary mainly focusing on the Astros would be sure to include plenty of excitement on that end, only for it all to end in tears and disappointment. That was a beautiful sight for Strasburg, who has clearly watched the documentary more than once.

Strasburg is a homegrown talent and has become both a fan favorite and a superstar in D.C. Comments like this will only increase his popularity. Going 2-0 in the World Series with 14 strikeouts also helps keep him loved by the fans.

For the Astros, this is the least worrisome video-related news of the offseason.
