One of the things you have to love about Miguel Cabrera is that he doesn't take himself too seriously, despite being the most dangerous hitter in baseball and a reigning two-time MVP. Heck, he did those weird "MLB 14 The Show" commercials, didn't he?

So it's not altogether surprising that Miggy let loose upon news of his contract extension with the Detroit Tigers — it's an eight-year, $248 million contract that when added to the $44 million on his current deal, means Cabrera will get paid $292 million over the next 10 years. Wowza.

He was getting his haircut when the extension became official. You might say his reaction is priceless, but actually, there's a pretty big price tag on it. Watch.

That's Jordan the Barber in the video, the celebrity hair cutter whose baseball clients include Albert Pujols, C.C. Sabathia, Aroldis Chapman and Robinson Cano. According to TMZ Sports, Miggy plans to use some of his new riches to fetch Jordan on a private jet whenever he needs him.
