See video below, in which MLB Network's Peter Gammons interviews Stephen Strasburg on his learning curve. Is it just us, or is Stras just a thousand times more comfortable doing the media thing now than he was two years ago?
And how different a pitcher is Stras now than he was two springs ago?
"I think I have a much better idea what I need to do to prepare for a season, and how to get ready for it. I think my first year, I was excited, obviously. I was coming off a great year in college, and then put on a stage with all the hype and expectations. I wanted to show everybody that I was the real deal. And now I think I don't need to prove it to anybody. I just gotta prove it to myself."
