Wow this question was two years ago hope you found out!! Anyways I had the same question and stormed off to the Tube to get it . It seems if you’re not in the mood to watch the video it largely has to do with scope. Procs./lambdas are able to access variables that would be not available to a method.

Also I’m sure this is skipping a little ahead but I’m a nerd what can I say… I watched the next video in his series and it looks like Lambda’s can really keep your methods tidy.
