NYT: FBI investigating the Cardinals for hacking the Astros

I feel like I already know how this ends. FBI won't be able to identify who did this exactly, so no individual charges will be issued, but they will be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that it was someone from the Cardinals organization. They'll be fined a couple hundred thousand and lose a draft pick. Ho-hum.

MLB won't do a damn thing about it. MLB isn't really tough on anything. It's a bunch of old dudes stuck in old ways. They'll roll over and tell the Cardinals not to do it again and say whatever punishment the legal system comes up with is enough.

 

I disagree.  This is much more personal to the owners than any players on the field behaving badly.

FBI should make the Cardinals take back Pujols and his contract.  

 

But in all seriousness.  If this was the MLB investigating, it would have been over, and nothing would have been done.  Unless the hack revealed information that Clemens was juicing.  Since it's the FBI, Selig can't hide.

 

Selig doesn't need hide.  He retired.  This problem has been passed on to Rob Manfred, who after the Hamilton fiasco has come across as a lenient punisher, or even anti-punishment.

Since it's the FBI investigating this, you better believe that MLB will come down pretty hard on the Cards. How could they not if the Feds are involved?

 

Plus, the Feds will probably prosecute the individual(s) involved.

He was barred from taking any form of action against Hamilton.   The decision was taken out of his hands.

"Josh Hamilton cannot be suspended for a self-reported relapse of drug use, according to an arbitrator's decision that brought critical comments Friday from both the Angels and Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred."

Prediction 1:  Teams will become much more hostile toward each other. 

Prediction 2:  Working in the front office for an MLB team essentially disqualifies you from working for another MLB front office. 

 

Not sure open hatred between teams is a bad thing.  Might make for some funny moments.
