Ex-Cardinals exec: Yes, I hacked rival Astros’ database

I admit this was a malicious act on the part of the Cardinals employee in question, but to call it “hacking” is a bit much.  The Astros failed to terminate the account of a former employee, and the former employee reused a password.  I would consider the act in question more of an example of walking through an unlocked door and less an act of breaking and entering.  Shame on Correa for doing what he did, but shame on the Astros for not managing their user accounts.
