6 game suspension vs. a 10 game suspension for roids??....go figure

Marlins batboy reportedly suspended over dare



Posted: 1 hour ago

A Florida Marlins batboy earned himself a six-game suspension from the team for accepting a dare to drink a gallon of milk in less than an hour without throwing up, according to a report in The Miami Herald.

The Herald says Dodgers pitcher Brad Penny (who was traded by the Marlins to L.A. last season) offered the unidentified boy $500 last Sunday if he could accomplish the task.

Penny reportedly said that the batboy drank the gallon of milk in the allotted time, but was not able to keep it down.

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

As a result, the batboy will not be allowed to work the team's upcoming homestand Aug. 29-Sept. 4 vs. the Cardinals and Mets.

The Marlins refused to comment on the suspension.

''It's ridiculous that they worry about stuff like that,'' Penny said. "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.
