  2. Nats get Gorzelanny for 3 prospects

    Jan 17, 2011, 8:12 PM EDT

    Updated at 6:08 p.m. Tom Gorzelanny may not qualify as the "No. 1 starter" the Nationals have been seeking all winter. But the 28-year-old left-hander is more of a sure thing than several of the candidates vying for spots in the Nats' rotation, and he comes at a much cheaper price than other front-line pitchers…

  8. Vacation time

    Jan 10, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

LaRoche and the Nats came to terms on the deal Tuesday evening, but it was contingent upon his passing the physical. The contract calls for him to earn $7 million this…
