The St. Louis Cardinals may soon have more problems than who's in their starting lineup. According to The New York Times, the team is under investigation by the FBI for allegedly hacking the Houston Astros.
The New York Times writes: "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 report doesn't detail exactly when the Cardinals might have allegedly hacked the Astros. The two sides, though, certainly have been close in recent history.
