FBI investigating front-office officials for the Baseballs St. Louis Cardinals…

Strange doings Major League baseball, eh?

Computers just ain’t too secure these days….

The F.B.I. and Justice Department prosecutors are investigating whether front-office officials for the St. Louis Cardinals, one of the most successful teams in baseball over the past two decades, hacked into 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 the Houston 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.

  2. It is true that Hack Wilson was not able to deliver a World Series win for the Cubs in the ’30s, but when they do eventually win the World Series in the next few years, it will be done without the Bernie Madoff/Kim Jong Un/Bill Belichek underhandness and subterfuge that we now know has permeated the entire St. Louis Cardinals organization.

    Also, my teams have now won 10 World Championships in my lifetime (though I was too young to appreciate one of them). Not many other fanbases can claim that… it has to be the Cubs’ turn soon!

  3. I think the Cardinals also might hacked into the very unsecure server of some former Cubs fan with an email address of HDR22.
