Car­di­nals chief blames ‘rogu­ish be­hav­ior’

Los Angeles Times - - BASEBALL -

St. Louis Car­di­nals Chair­man Bill DeWitt Jr. blamed “rogu­ish be­hav­ior” for the team’s in­volve­ment in the al­leged hack­ing of the Hous­ton Astros’ player per­son­nel data­base.

DeWitt said the team was still in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mat­ter but said no more than a hand­ful of in­di­vid­u­als in an op­er­a­tion that num­bers in the hun­dreds was re­spon­si­ble.

“I can’t come up with a rea­son for it,” DeWitt said. It goes against ev­ery­thing we stand for. We don’t know who did what here.”

Mean­while, Astros Gen­eral Man­ager Jeff Luh­now said he up­dated his pass­words and the no­tion that poor pass­word pro­tec­tion was to blame for the data­base hack is “ab­so­lutely false.”
