First baseman Adam LaRoche told Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post that he’d like to re-sign with the Washington Nationals and stay with the club "for a few more years."

"I would love to stay," LaRoche said. "I’m kind of getting tired of bouncing around. My kids enjoy it here. It might be nice to stay for a few more years. I have no idea what their long-term plans are. But I’d like to stick around."

LaRoche has put together an impressive 2012 campaign, hitting .269/.342/.505 with twenty-nine doubles and twenty-nine home runs. The 32-year-old is in the final guaranteed season of the two-year pact he signed with the Nationals prior to the 2011 season.

While the guaranteed years are coming to an end, LaRoche’s deal does include a $10 million mutual option for 2013. Kilgore believes the Nationals would be interested in exercising their portion of the option, but LaRoche may be looking for a long-term deal this winter following his solid season.
