"We'd never put down any type of definitive statements at this time of the offseason, but suffice it to say, we feel comfortable with the first base situation as it is. That's not to say something couldn't change during the winter. But we feel comfortable with LaRoche and with Morse in the background."
(Mike Rizzo, via CSN Washington, 10/20/2011)
But what else can he say at this point? Obviously Rizzo has other concerns this offseason besides signing one of the two biggest fish on the free agent market...but we still won't be surprised to see either Fielder or Pujols putting on the Curly W for the first time this winter during a press conference at Nationals Park. Rizzo loves to make a splash, afterall...
