Nationals | Optimistic on Adam LaRoche

Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson said the club is still optimistic that they can re-sign 1B Adam LaRoche. "I thought there were some positive signs from (General Manager Mike Rizzo) that he thought we could get something done before Christmas," Johnson said. "Adam knows we want him back." The Nats are holding firm on their two-year deal to LaRoche, and LaRoche turned down the proposal of adding an option for a third year. A team that loses out on free-agent OF Josh Hamilton (Rangers) may up their offer to LaRoche, which may be why he's still holding out.
