Way to milk it!
I love this suspended batboy story.
Quick recap, if you’re not aware: Dodgers pitcher Brad Penny, a former member of the Florida Marlins, dared a Marlins batboy to drink one gallon of milk in under an hour Sunday while the Dodgers were in Florida. Penny offered up $500 if the kid was able to do it without vomiting. He didn’t vomit, but didn’t finish the milk in time, either. The Marlins suspended him for six games, leading Penny to quip, “It’s kind of ridiculous that you get a 10-game suspension for steroids and a six-game suspension for milk.”
Now it appears he’ll be living his 15 minutes of fame: The Milk Processor Education Program is offering him the cash in exchange for his pimping milk, and a Minnesota Twins minor league affiliate wants him as honorary batboy Monday for a “Milk Night” promotion.
