    Zobrist and Cano will be free agents after 2013.  If you could sign one of them to a multi-year deal, which one would it be and why?

      I wouldn’t sign Cano, period. Very low probability that he’s able to beat the aging curve that shows second basemen to completely fall apart around 32 years old.
