Nationals' Stephen Strasburg shaves goatee, hardly recognizable

As he gears up to take the hill for the Washington Nationals again, pitcher Stephen Strasburg looks like a brand-new man. The 26-year-old righty sported a new look in the Nationals dugout last week after shaving his goatee and trimming his sideburns.
