Furcal Prefers To Re-Sign With Dodgers

Rafael Furcal's agent, Paul Kinzer, says the Dodgers are his client's first choice and he hopes to re-sign before the free agent signing period begins. 

Furcal was off to an incredible start this year until a back injury sidelined him in May.  Before the injury, I was predicting $75MM over five years.  Now we're probably looking at $12MM per year for two or three years, maybe with incentives involved.  It only takes one maverick team to defy expectations, though.  Magglio Ordonez got five guaranteed years following experimental knee surgery, though the Tigers received an opt-out clause in case that injury re-occurred.

If Furcal re-signs, the free agent shortstop market will be bleak.  Orlando Cabrera will be the top guy.
