St. Louis Cardinals Ordered To Pay Houston Astros $2 Million Dollars

The MLB passed down a ruling today in the case between the St. Louis Cardinals and Houston Astros in regard to the hacking of Houston Astro emails and data. According to ABC 13, “Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred banned former St. Louis scouting executive Christopher Correa for life on Monday and stripped the Cardinals of the 56th and 75th draft choices in June.”

The Houston Astros issued this statement in regard to the ruling:
“The Houston Astros support MLB’s ruling and award of penalties. This unprecedented award by the Commissioner’s Office sends a clear message of the severity of these actions. Our staff has invested a great deal of time in support of the government, legal and league investigations and are pleased to have closure on this issue. We are looking forward to focusing our attention on the 2017 season and the game of baseball.”

This serves the Cardinals right! Even though I don’t feel like $2 million dollars to a baseball team or someone with that kind of status would hurt all that much. Hopefully, at least, this sends a message not to mess with our scouting and databases. That was a pretty dirty play by STL.

Hopefully, this ordeal is over.
