Washington is signing Adam LaRoche to a two-year deal, and not the three-year deal he was seeking. It’s a good scenario for Nats fans, although not so much for Mike Morse.
The dollars are unknown ($25 million?), but we know ALR, health willing, is holding down 1B for the Nats until 2015.
As for Morse, he has one year and $6.75 million left on his contract, and the expectation is he’ll be traded. He doesn’t seem happy about it, which is a shame, because I like Morse.
But this is probably what’s best for the Nats, so long as they can still cheese up the stadium experience with “Take On Me.”
