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?

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

He worked with Joey Votto this offseason.
