â€“ First baseman Adam LaRoche is still a free agent and he's still interested in coming back with the Washington Nationals writes Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post. But since negotiations â€śremain stagnantâ€ť between the two, he's been talking to a â€śfew other teams.â€ť
â€śGot to keep things open in case Washington doesn't work out,â€ť LaRoche said. â€śI'm still hopeful that it will, but as you know it takes two sides cooperating to make that happen. I'm doing everything I can.â€ť
LaRoche, who hit .271/.343/.510 with 33 HR's, 100 RBI's and a .361 wOBA in 647 plate appearances is looking a three-year deal.

Remember back in 2010, when Bryce Harper went on the radio in DC and publicly declared his love for the Cowboys (and the Yankees and Duke and the Lakers)? Well, it seems that Harper's Twitter bromance with RGII has fixed him for good -- because Bryce Harper, the Cowboys fan, is rooting for the Redskins over the Cowboys in tonight's NFC East clincher -- and he wore his RGIII...

Werth's beard appears to be in mid-season form, but the paunch seems to be in perfect post-Christmas form. One explanation: Werth spent the month of December working as a mall Santa?

Well, last year we rung in the New Year with a photo of Tyler Clippard and Drew Storen wearing festive hats on New Year's Eve. This year, we'll go with Ryan Zimmerman wearing one of those hats last night, with his fiancee. Happy New Year, NatsTown.

Like so many things, it seems.
As 2012 comes to an end, it only seems right that we take a moment to remember what this past year really meant to the Washington Nationals and baseball in DC. When the season started in April, expectations were high for the Nats. They were the first Nats team that had a real shot to finish over .500, and they even had a chance to finish third in the NL East, which would have been...
