Just a thought on LaRoche, I think it's a little unfair to call this year a career year. It's his second consecutive (healthy) year where he's put up 100 rbi's and his slash line is remarkably similar to his career numbers. The only difference between this year and past seasons is that he didn't get off to a slow start, he was pretty steady all year long. I think you'll get a couple more years of that from him, he brings some really nice balance to the lineup and a consistent glove at 1B and bat at the plate. If there's a deal to be done, it makes too much sense to do it. Frankly, I'd have no problem giving him 3 years if that's what it took.
