There were so many players to choose from, but nobody is going to debate this. Washington Nationals co-ace Stephen Strasburg is your World Series MVP after he delivered two gutsy road starts against the Houston Astros to help his team win its first-ever championship.
The right-hander went 2-0 with a 2.51 ERA and struck out 14 batters over 14.1 innings in the Fall Classic. But the stats don't do his performance justice. The numbers are certainly good, but Strasburg got so many big outs and fought deep into games to keep his team in it and allow the bullpen to stay fresh for the games that proceeded.
He got knocked around early on in the two outings against the Astros but persevered and out-dueled Justin Verlander both times.
In addition to the hardware, Strasburg gets himself a brand new Corvette. Washington DC better roll out the red carpet for this man when he arrives home.
