07:15 AM ET 12.02 | Who's on first -- or third? The Tigers continue to say they're not yet sure, even in the wake of reports out of Venezuela that Miguel Cabrera has informed ballclub brass he is open to moving back to first. "We are not prepared to answer that question yet," Dave Dombrowski, Tigers president and general manager, said in an email to The News. Dombrowski also would not confirm the reported discussion with Cabrera. He did say, however, the team will have a much better idea of its direction in the coming week. That makes sense, because the sooner the Tigers know which way they're going, the sooner they'll know who they want to target on the free-agent market. And they'll want to have a pretty solid plan with things set to heat up, ahead of next week's winter meetings in Orlando, Fla.

Miggy and VMart (if he's still around for '14) could rotate at 1B and DH, probably good for both of them.

Sounds like they are either pursuing an upper tier free agent OF like Beltran/Choo/Ellsbury or working on a trade for someone like Andre Either/Dexter Fowler for Porcello/Fister. Getting a productive OF bat would make it easier to move Castellanos to 3rd and Cabrera to 1st.

Why move him to first after his stellar performance at third?

The Brit in me thought that this was going to be an article about what his mother thinks.
