Alex Cabrera looking for a multi-year deal?

Sponchi mentions that Alex Cabrera is looking for a multi-year deal.  The Buffaloes, on the other hand, seem to be thinking more along the lines of a one-year deal.

If you're the Orix Buffaloes, do you cave to his demands and give him a 2-year deal?  Or do you run the risk of losing him to another club by pushing a one-year deal?

For those wondering, Cabrera turns 39 in December.  It might also be worth mentioning that Cabrera played in 112 games this season (left flank, left hamstring) and only 65 last season (right pinky toe, left foot, left pectoral).
