The Chicago Tribune, which owns the shit-assed Cubs reported the following today:

Having fun as L.A. hopes sour

Published August 23, 2005

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Brad Penny bet a batboy $500 on Sunday that he couldn't drink a gallon of milk in under an hour without throwing up. Some of Penny's teammates kicked in on the wager, raising the ante to more than $1,000, according to the Miami Herald. The unidentified batboy managed to drink the gallon of milk, but was unable to fulfill the second part of the bargain. "He drank it down to the last drop," Penny said. "But he couldn't hold it in. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time." Penny was in pretty good spirits considering he was hammered by the Marlins 11-6 Saturday in his first visit back to Florida since last year's trade. After Sunday's loss L.A. found itself 10 games out in the wild-card chase.

The last two sentences are really harsh. I expect that sort of angry statement about any of the Cubs who are playing so far below expectations this year (I'm looking at you Patterson, Garciaparra, and anyone in left field on any given night).

For the record, I'd try that for $1,000 right now.
