  • Marlins suspend batboy for milk-drinking dare

    WTF!! What a bunch of shit.

    Milk does a body good, but it didn't do good for one batboy.

    On a dare, a Florida Marlins batboy tried to drink a gallon of milk in under an hour without throwing up. But not only did the batboy not succeed in the challenge, his mere attempt cost him his job for six games, the Miami Herald reported Wednesday.

    The Marlins suspended the unidentified batboy for the team's upcoming six-game homestand against the Cardinals and Mets from Aug. 28 through Sept. 4 for accepting the dare Sunday from Dodgers pitcher (and former Marlin) Brad Penny.

    Penny offered the batboy $500 if he could drink a gallon of milk in less than an hour before Sunday's game without throwing up. Penny told the paper the boy drank the milk and didn't throw up, but didn't finish the gallon in the allotted time frame to win the dare.

    "It's kind of ridiculous that you get a 10-game suspension for steroids and a six-game suspension for milk," Penny told the Herald.

    ''It's ridiculous that they worry about stuff like that. It shows they [the Marlins organization] don't know anything about the game. That kind of stuff goes on everywhere. It didn't affect the way he worked, the way he did his job.''

    The team will be lucky if the kids parents don't sue the team for putting the kid in danger or something.
    Fucking Marlins

    Steroids = Good
    Milk = Bad

      I totally agree with what Penny says. It is bullshit.

        Well at the very least Penny should give the kid the 500$. Does being a batboy pay anything?

          Steroids will get you ten games.
          Milk will get you six.

            imagine what they would do if Penny bet him he could not bong a bottle of wine or something?

                Batboy suspended = expendable
                Penny suspended = No Wild Card

                Makes sense...

                If you were a dumbshit.
