Miggy visits 'Intentional Talk,' tweaks JV, Leyland, dances like Shakira

Miguel Cabrera was a guest on the MLB Network TV program "Intentional Talk" on Tuesday, cracking up the hosts, Chris Rose and Kevin Millar.

Among the more salient points:
• Given a choice between Justin Verlander, Prince Fielder and Torii Hunter for "ugliest teammate," Cabrera went with JV. (Verlander, for the record, had called Al Alburquerque the ugliest teammate in his own visit to the show earlier this season.)
• Cabrera has the ugliest feet on the Tigers, thanks to fouling sinkers off his toes for years.
• Miggy did a pretty spot-on Jim Leyland impersonation when asked by the hosts if he's ever smoked a cigarette with his boss.
• He explains (somewhat) the handshake that he and Fielder do after home runs.

If you haven't watched the clip yet, it's a worthwhile nine minutes. Most people don't get to see the "funny Miggy" personality that's often on display in the clubhouse, but doesn't always come across in interviews.

Give it a watch:
