CBS Sports Says ‘Peavy Scalps Tribe For Fourth Win’ In White Sox Pitcher’s Profile


After Jake Peavy shut down the Indians for seven innings on Wednesday en route to his fourth win of the season, CBS Sports took its latest update for the White Sox ace in a dubious direction.

The latest status on Peavy’s CBS Sports player profile page was titled, “Peavy scalps Tribe for fourth win,” conjuring some violent imagery with the help of the Cleveland team’s controversial name.

A charter member of the American League, the Cleveland organization has come under fire about the team’s name before, including this year before the 2012 season home opener and when the Indians visited Oakland in late April. As fans walked into Progressive Field for the first home game of the season, a small group of protesters stood outside with signs that read “Stop Teaching Your Children Racism.” Proponents of a name change believe that the team’s name and mascot (Chief Wahoo) are offensive. Those folks likely wouldn’t enjoy the phrasing of this CBS fantasy notice.

Back in February while Linsanity was sweeping the nation, ESPN promoted an article about a Knicks loss to the Hornets on its mobile platforms with the headline “Chink In The Armor.”

Federico apologized for the headline, claiming that it was an “honest mistake” and that it wasn’t intended as a reference to Lin’s ethnicity.

UPDATE: CBS Sports changed the title of the latest update on Peavy’s player profile page to “Peavy takes Tribe to fourth win.”
