Quotes from the Clubhouse: Adam LaRoche On The Transfer Rule

“I’ve said it before that play, it’s one of the worst rules I’ve ever heard of. I don’t feel like it’s baseball. I think the umpires are smart enough to make judgement calls, and it kind of handcuffs them to have no choice… It doesn’t make sense. So, yeah, it’s frustrating. Especially in a close game, you know, when that could’ve ended up costing us. Hopefully...

Werth, LaRoche provide Nats much needed ninth inning rally

Jayson Werth and Adam LaRoche saved the Washington Nationals last night from what appeared to be a sweep by the LA Angels.  There is no doubt that injuries to Ryan Zimmerman, Wilson Ramos, and Doug Fister are hampering the Nats.  However, even more than those injuries, the Nats offense has been poor, which is quite scary and eerily similar to 2013. Werth and LaRoche provided the...

Video: Adam LaRoche's walk-off single

"Well, it didn't last long, it was one pitch. Not a whole lot to go through. He left a fastball up over the plate. In that situation, just trying to hit something hard. I know he has a good changeup, so I can't really sell out on the fastball. I tried to put a good swing on." (Adam LaRoche, via, 4/24/2014) Nationals 5, Angels 4: Nats earn series...

LaRoche's walk-off hit saves Nationals from sweep vs. Angels

Trying to avoid an interleague series sweep, the Nationals needed a good start from Gio Gonzalez. They got one, but that still wasn't good enough. Until some high drama in the bottom of the ninth. Cruising for five innings, Gonzalez quickly got into trouble in the sixth when he walked Mike Trout and gave up an RBI double to Albert Pujols. The game tied 1-1 at that point and...

Angels blow 3-run lead in 9th, fall to Nats

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Adam LaRoche's tiebreaking RBI single off the first pitch from Fernando Salas capped a four-run rally in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the Washington Nationals came back to beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-4 Wednesday night to avoid a sweep. Los Angeles led 4-1 entering the ninth, and closer Ernesto Frieri (0-2) went in, seeking his third save. Instead,...

Nationals' Adam LaRoche sits with quad injury

In need of a physical rest to heal his ailing quad, and perhaps a mental rest from left-hander pitchers who have tamed him to the tune of a sub .750 OPS over the course of his career, Washington Nationals first baseman Adam Laroche was given a game off in Tuesday night's 7-2 loss to the Los Angeles of Anaheim.      Battling a sore quadriceps muscle after taking a pitch off...

2014 Fantasy Baseball Hot Hitters and Pitchers

There was plenty of fireworks in Period  2 of the fantasy baseball season. I could sit and discuss all of the big names, but what would you get from that? Absolutely nothing. Who I am going to list are those that are hot and are still riding the waiver wire pine in many leagues.  Players like Adam LaRoche who is owned in 80.5% of fantasy leagues yet is a top-20 contributor in fantasy...

Adam LaRoche's first Tweet was sort of disappointing

And so, word got out last week that Adam LaRoche had joined Twitter, as @e3laroche. On Saturday night, LaRoche checked in with his first Tweet, which was fairly disappointing: Never thought I would tweet but figured if ya can't beat em, join em! Thanks to all for the warm welcome. — Adam LaRoche (@e3laroche) March 30, 2014 We were expecting at least mountain lions...

Video: Adam LaRoche's first home run of spring training

And so, Adam LaRoche hit a majestic two-run home run in the fourth inning of Sunday's Grapefruit League tilt against the Marlins. Video below. Of course, a spring training home run might not be as impressive as bagging a mountain lion, but it was still a perfectly LaRochian home run. Spring is in the air, despite Monday's forecast.

Just Adam LaRoche with some ducks

While you're sitting around in the cold waiting for NatsFest this weekend, enjoy the photo above of Adam LaRoche with a fistful of dead ducks. Of course, this one isn't nearly as impressive as the picture of Adam LaRoche with a dead mountain lion, but at least his beard is looking much more impressive in this one.
