LaRoche, Nationals talking about new contract

Washington Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche's representatives from the SFX agency and the club have continued to discuss a new contract for next season and beyond, with no deal imminent but the sides working toward an agreement. "I don't know what stage you would say it is," LaRoche said Friday. "There's nothing definitive. I don't know if this is something that is a week out or two months out. They've laid a little bit of the groundwork to see if it would even work. They've made some progress." LaRoche, 32, just finished a career season in which he hit 33 home runs with 100 RBIs and an .853 OPS, which ranked first, first and second among National League first basemen.
