    St. Louis Cardinals Investigated by F.B.I. for Hacking Astros

    WASHINGTON — The F.B.I. and Justice Department prosecutors are investigating front-office officials for the St. Louis Cardinals, one of the most successful teams in baseball over the past two decades, for hacking into the internal networks of a rival team to steal closely guarded information about player personnel.Investigators have uncovered evidence that Cardinals officials broke into a network of theHouston Astros that housed special databases the team had built, according to law enforcement officials. Internal discussions about trades, proprietary statistics and scouting reports were compromised, the officials said.
    The officials did not say which employees were the focus of the investigation or whether the team’s highest-ranking officials were aware of the hacking or authorized it. The investigation is being led by the F.B.I.’s Houston field office and has progressed to the point that subpoenas have been served on the Cardinals and Major League Baseball for electronic correspondence.

    That's weird. Was there a trade in the works? That's the only reason I can think of for an NL team to pull that with an AL team.

    What a mess this will become if it turns out to be true.

    Will be interesting to see what the MLB does if it turns out to be true.
    Boston: City of Champions. New England Patriots: 2001, 2003, 2004, 2014, and 2016 Boston Red Sox: 2004, 2007 and 2013 Boston Celtics: 2008 Boston Bruins: 2011 Boston University Men's Hockey: 2008

    John Mozeliak is considered one of the best GM's in the game

    And the organization has been the model of consistency for 25+ years

    After reading the article, it sounds like someone was really pissed at the guy who left to take the Astro's job

    Then he took a number of guys with him.....

    No excuse guys!

    This is NOT how the model franchise reacts to crap like that....

    It will be interesting to see if other teams make some sort of statement (hitting players, etc.) when they play the Cardinals. Not like it's the players' fault, though...

    I heard that on the news and for the life of me, I can't figure out what possible reason they would do this. Anyone?
