    Many moons ago, allegedly, the former St. Louis Cardinals scouting director, Chris Correa, hacked into the Atros' ground control system, which contains all of their scouting info. He has since been "relieved" of his position. According to Correa, he was merely looking to see if the Atros had any information pertaining to the Cardinals.

    We all know that the world of baseball is a deep ocean of happenings, so it isn't any surprise that this story sort of fell off the edge of the earth for some time.

    At any rate, at least now before the draft in June, it doesn't look like the MLB is going to do anything about it. Correa's sentencing has been postponed at the moment. So for now, the investigation is stagnant, which is good for the Cardinals and their draft picks. This season they were given extra picks and a bigger budget.

    As much as I don't care for the Cardinals, it's good to see some drama put on the back burner for now.

    Back burner no longer.

    Ex-Cards scouting director Chris Correa sentenced to prison for hacking Astros

    46 months.. damn.

    Christopher Correa had pleaded guilty in January to five counts of unauthorized access of a protected computer from 2013 to at least 2014, the same year he was promoted to director of baseball development in St. Louis. He was fired last summer and now faces 46 months behind bars and a court order to pay $279,038 in restitution. He had faced up to five years in prison on each count.

    How long do you think until this is a movie? I see Kevin Costner lining up for the role.
