Today's Tiger birthdays (2/14): Alejandro Sanchez (59).

BG, you're giving a half hearted effort today.  Its Alejandro's birthday, and you give us an Alex card.  Come on, man, where is the effort?  Has the Gardenhire era not inspired you?

This looks more like he is ducking out of the way of something that it does throwing a pitch.  Maybe that's the problem with Farmer.

I wonder what Steve is doing now.  Personal fitness instructor?

He worked with Joey Votto this offseason.
