Custom Card of the Day: LaRoche Edition

Adam LaRoche has played for eleven seasons. He's played on pennant-winning Braves teams, slumping Pirates teams, a surprisingly alright Diamondbacks squad, and has been a durable, efficient first baseman.

Yet he's getting tons of praise for being the anchor in Washington, and he deserves every bit of it. After all of those years of being underrated, and overlooked, he's finally a grade-A first baseman on a playoff team. Not only that, but he's part of the mega-infield that includes Ian Desmond, Asdrubal Cabrera, and Ryan Zimmerman.

I'm happy he's hitting so well too, because he's putting up quite a few home runs this season, and he's playing really well, which I'm happy for. The guy's 34 and he's finally having the season he deserves.

The Nats are playing just as well, which is great. I hope they keep it up.

Coming Tonight: A rookie I just need to get out of the way.
