'Joey Bats' stars in 'Untouchables' parody

As Jose Bautista continues to prove last year's 54-homer explosion was no fluke, he's bound to start gaining more face-time nationally. Recently, the Blue Jays star visited's Fan Cave and cut a video that was a parody of a scene from "The Untouchables." You might recall the scene, where Robert DeNiro -- playing the notorious Al Capone -- is walking around a table, holding a baseball bat and lecturing his employees about teamwork. The scene ends with a gruesome beatdown of one employee Capone believed wasn't a team player.

Without the blood, Bautista wields the bat and the "victim" is a baseball in this video. In case you're unaware, Bautista's nickname in the video is "Joey Bats," which is a reference to his Twitter handle (@JoeyBats19) and his still relatively obscure nickname. Here's the video.

That's a decent mix of clever and cheese, I'd say.

Bautista, 30, is easily the best hitter in baseball at this point. He leads the majors in runs, home runs, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, OPS (obviously) and total bases. He also leads the AL in walks. This all with having missed a week due to a sore neck earlier in the season. Basically, get used to seeing Bautista appear in more and more spots such as the above video.
