MLB's Site Needs To Be Tested

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Whoever runs MLB.com better be careful as to which words they use in their headlines.

Ignore me if I'm reading too much into this, but on the day Tim Lincecum is awarded a record $13 million in arbitration, while accepting a reduced drug paraphernalia charge, too, isn't it a bit much to use the verb "shooting" in your headline when notifying the public of his record deal?

MLB.com's headline reads, "Lincecum shooting for a record in arbitration."


According to the dictionary, some old book I happen to come across from grade school, "Shooting" can be defined as, "To inject (a drug, for example) with a hypodermic syringe."

Call me 'Crazy,' but it seems to me that someone at MLB.com either lacks sensitivity towards a person OR is not very careful as to which verbs they are utilizing in their headlines.

Whatever the case, they ought to very well be tested for something.

He is such a "dope", perhaps he hit his head w/ a "pot" before writing. Throw him in the "joint" w/ visits only to his GF "Mary Jane" :)

You are reading to much into it. It was weed, not heroine. There was no shooting.
