Nationals Interested in Derek Lee?

MLB.com is reporting the Nationals have expressed interest in signing Derek Lee. Lee said he expects to come to Spring Training at 100%. If that happens a typical Lee season of 20 HRs and 80+ RBIs is likely. The Nationals are also said to have expressed interest in Adam LaRoche. Rumor is LaRoche is looking for around 10 million per season. Both Lee and LaRoche would probably command similar salaries but LaRoche is 4 years younger and would probably be more motivated to hold out for a longer term deal.
