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

Boy, you sure hate to read this about such an upstanding organization.

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.

Wonder what The Best Fans in Baseball think of this development.
