    Have to chuckle that on DetNews right now there is an article about how the Tigers answer to Victor's injury may be from within - with a picture of Andy Dirks. Apparently Dirks turned into Prince...haha.

    When the competition for the corner fielding job is Delmon, how much will it hurt you to put Cabby out there for 50 games to see how he does? He played a fair amount of OF in his 1st few years. He wasn't good at it then, but either is Delmon now - and Cabby might have the tools to get better.

    Cabby cannot possibly be worse than Delmon in LF.

    You think Fielder goes to 1B right away, and DH Miguel? I guess they can prep Miguel for 3B all season if they do that.

    And Cabrera is going to be fine with this right?

    This has UGLY written all over this. My guess is that means someone is headed out of town for 2013 unless Cabrera/Fielder/V-Mart is the new 3B or LF option for 2013.

    So, does Miggy protect Fielder or is it the other way around?

    Honestly this does bring up a question... we certainly have the sticks now, maybe we need to focus on fielding up the middle? I think the Tigers really need to focus on getting some good gloves for 2B and SS. Peralta was okay last year, but with his age I don't expect him to be able to handle it much longer.

    To join the Biff parade at being Debbie Downer, while putting together your batting line up, here's a very real possible fielding alignment:

    LF: Young, CF: Jackson, RF: Boesch
    3B: Cabrera, SS: Peralta, 2B: Raburn, 1B: Fielder

    That's a below average fielder in LF, 3B, 2B, 1B. Average-to-Below Avearge in SS and RF.

    Wonder what we could get back for Miggy. Starts with Kershaw, only goes up from there.
