LaRoche likes what he sees in Nats' clubhouse
WASHINGTON -- The Nationals are 7-2 entering Sunday's action, and first baseman Adam LaRoche is already comparing this team to some of the Braves teams that went to the postseason while he was there. LaRoche played October baseball in 2005 and the following season.

Asked how the two clubs compared, LaRoche said, "Really good, but again, it's real early. It's tough to say, but more importantly, everybody in [the Nationals] locker room feel it's a good, special team. We keep that up, we are going to have a lot of wins.

"Again, the pitching has been phenomenal. They picked us up, and that is key. I've been on some other teams that had some really good offenses, but we didn't get a lot of wins. The pitching wasn't there. You have to have good pitching, you have to stay healthy and keep us in these games. It takes pressure off everybody."
