Adam LaRoche: LaRoche was a free agent heading into an off-season after a career year, smacking 33 home runs and driving in 100 runs. The Nats promised LaRoche a two year deal, but he wanted a three year deal. Do to the fact the new CBA attached a second draft pick to LaRoche, his options were dwindled. No team out there was willing to give LaRoche a three deal. He re-upped with the Nats yesterday. He gets a Stock Up because, according to LaRoche, Washington is where he wanted to be all along. He is a veteran slugger with outstanding character and is a locker room leader. He enjoyed his stay in DC and has now extended that relationship for two more years. Welcome back Adam!
