The 2015 season thus far for the St. Louis Cardinals was almost too good to be true. Clenching 1st in the NL Central and holding the best record in the MLB, they literally had it all.
Oh yeah, until they were hit with an FBI investigation.
And as usual, an animated show predicted it (just like with Bruce Jenner’s gender change). The Simpsons to be exact.
There are accusations that a Cardinals employee hacked into the Houston Astros’ database in attempts to steal the team’s statistics, trades, scouting reports, and the list goes on. Since the initial investigation began, William Dewitt, Jr., the owner of the Cardinals, has been working closely with the FBI to determine if this breach of privacy did, in fact, happen and identify the employee(s) of the Cardinals’ organization who were involved. He has reported that the Cardinals are “committed to getting to the bottom of this matter as soon as possible, and if anyone within our organization is determined to be involved in anything inappropriate, they will be held accountable.”
Jose Bautista took a stab at the Cardinals and even took a stab at good ole Bill Belichick.
Here’s what Bautista said in an interview with Yahoo Sports Radio:
“I’m, though, intrigued to know why the FBI is involved and not just the MLB’s investigations department,” Bautista said. “So, that’ll be interesting to see. But it looks like they just took a page out of Bill Belichick’s book.”
Thank the internet for this photo.
SMH. America you’re doing too much.
Safe to say this little scandal will be all over our radar the next few days. But, in the meantime, hats off to the Houston Astros for still being seen as the team to beat!
