Anyway, free agent first baseman Adam LaRoche tells MLB.com's Bll Ladson that he is interested in playing for the Nationals and is scheduled to meet with them in the next couple of days.
"We are going to start some conversations with the Nationals," LaRoche said. "If we come on the same page, I would definitely have interest in playing for them."
And heck, here's betting LaRoche, 31, may even look to sign for less than seven years and $126 million.
