Hacking mess

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 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.

Oh, this would be glorious. Please tell me they all go to jail and lose all of their ability to sign players for like 5 years.

Holy crap, that's not an Onion article?

If they actually were behind the exposure of the Astros data, I hope MLB buries them.

I don't know what this means. But it sounds to me like grounds for immediate post-season disqualification. For the next 3 years.

No, it'd be much worse to make them terrible for like 10 years straight.

I love that the motivation was to get back at a guy who was an [expletive] when he was with the Cards FO.

Give the Cardinals another compensation pick to make up for the distress caused by this investigation. They deserve it.

I think the loss of draft picks should be the minimum.

But if this is just one or two guys that decided to check if old passwords worked...won't it just end up with them fired/charged, and the Cardinals pay a fine or something? At first glance it looks like there wasn't so much of a competitive advantage gained. I'll be happy to be proven wrong.
