Dempster— riding an incredible 33-inning consecutive scoreless streak— did a pretty good impression of Fat Bastard from the Austin Powers movies during an interview and the Chicago Cubs starter had Kurkjian giggling like a school girl while also doing impressions of Dr. Evil and Harry Carey.
I say put a plaid tam on Dempster's head he'd look like Willy the Groundskeeper.
Dempster threw six more shutout innings Saturday during a 4-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. It was his fifth consecutive win and the last time he gave up a run was May 30. He leads the majors with a 1.86 ERA.
Dempster's name keeps coming up in trade talks and— if Dr. Evil is his agent— would probably ask for one million dollars.
