Dear San Diego Studios; please do Stephen Strasburg right in a future game.

Strasburg has never gotten a great card by SDS in MLB The Show. For someone who appeared in 13 MLB seasons, went to three All-Star games, received Cy Young votes three different times, won a World Series, and was crowned the World Series MVP, you'd think he’d get a good card. Strasburg pitched all 1470 of his career innings in a Nationals uniform, with a 3.24 ERA, 3.02 FIP, and 1723 K’s.

Strasburg deserves a 99 overall card with 110+ hits and K’s per-9 with 120+ clutch for his heroics in the 2019 World Series. 2014 would also be a good year to base a Strasburg card off of given he led the league in K’s with 242. The only concern is that Strasburg just retired, and he might not return to the game immediately. But he will remain my most wanted Nationals legend until his return.
