Miggy and Collin Balester in a telenovela? Si, por favor
Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera (in an eye-patch) and reliever Collin Balester co-starred in an episode of "La Cueva del Fanatico" when they visited the MLB Fan Cave in New York. Miggy, of course, played a character called "Miggy Poco" (Little Miggy) and Collin was ... well, Collin ... except he was a girlfriend stealer, apparently.
Harmless. Mildly funny. About as good a way to spend 2 minutes, 20 seconds of your life as any other on an off day.
