Stephen Strasburg – Go deeper into ballgames.

In order for Stephen Strasburg to become the true ace of the Nats that everyone believes he is already, he simply needs to throw more innings. In 2013, Strasburg averaged just over 6 innings a start, a decent number for a back of the rotation starter, but not for a true workhorse. Granted, Strasburg did throw his first career complete game this past season, but for him to take the next step as a dominant force on the mound, he needs to get into the eighth inning more consistently.
