2012 Stats: 154 Games, .271 BA, 33 HRs, 100 RBIs & .853 OPS
The Washington Nationals re-signed 1B Adam LaRoche to a two year contract with an option for a third season. LaRoche had a career year in 2012, winning a Gold Glove as well as a Silver Slugger. LaRoche will bat in the middle of a batting order that boasts players like Ryan Zimmerman, Jayson Werth and Bryce Harper. The Nationals made the playoffs last season and there is no reason to think that they won't make it again this upcoming season.
