What is the deal with the Birds?

So there’s a story that broke this week that the St Louis Cardinals are under Federal investigation for hacking into the Astros computer system. Really? Yes St Louis is a powerhouse and a dominant team in the NL but is hacking how they got there?

This all happened last summer and is quite the story. The FBI is investigating and for now MLB is saying it’s not our concern and we aren’t doing the investigating. I am just curious as to what you would actually get from hacking the Astros system that you couldn’t find out elsewhere.

Strange story indeed but that’s baseball.
