Hands down it would be wise to sign anyone to a multi-year deal sooner than later considering that they produce on consistent basis first - it's cheaper in the long run. Will Bruce's agent recommend it to him when the time approaches - depends on the figures. If he continues to hit like he did in the minor leagues his FA value once he reaches that time will lead the list, so the sky is the limit.
The Rays did it with Longoria after 2 weeks.
