Ryan Dempster does Fat Bastard and makes Tim Kurkjian giggle

Ryan Dempster's talents extend beyond the the baseball field as he showed host Tim Kurkjian on ESPN's "Baseball Tonight."

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.
