Winter -- if you can call it that, c'mon, it's been insanely mild! -- passed its halfway point at Groundhog Day. So, let's count it down to the date where pitchers and catchers (and some other folks, I can't remember who) have to report to the Tigers' Spring Training facility in Lakeland, Florida.
The magic day is Thursday, February 18.
Whoa, hold on a minute... that's today!
It is here, friends.
It is here.
