MilkGate Returns

If you remember last year the Marlins had a batboy suspended after a milk drinking wager.  Well, he is back with a new job.

Former Marlins batboy Nick Cirillo has a new job as a clubhouse attendant for the Washington Nationals.

Cirillo was suspended for six games last year for accepting a dare from Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Brad Penny, who offered Cirillo $500 if he could drink a gallon of milk in an hour without throwing up. Cirillo, who lost the bet, wouldn't comment Wednesday.

While Penny did offer $500, the total wager ended up being $1,000, but that really doesn't matter.

It is nice to see that the bovine juice chugging young man has landed back on his feet and is still in baseball.

It's good to hear from you again, Nick.
