DOES JEFF KENT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH CHOCOLATE MILK? Thank goodness there's one baseball team where the biggest problem is too much milk:
A batboy who accepted a dare Sunday by trying to drink a gallon of milk without throwing up has been suspended by the Marlins for his actions.

The unidentified batboy will not be allowed to work the upcoming, six-game homestand at Dolphins Stadium against the Cardinals and Mets from Aug. 29 through Sept. 4. . . .

[Former Marlin and] Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Brad Penny, who offered $500 to the batboy if he could drink a gallon of milk in less than an hour before Sunday's game, was angry about the decision.

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

According to Penny, the batboy drank the gallon of milk within the time allotment but was unable to keep it down.

What's it like? Ask this guy, or see it in photos here.
