Cardinals hacking news leads to hilarious #AstrosPassword meme

Tuesday June 16th, 2015

News broke on Tuesday that the Cardinals are being investigated by the FBI for hacking into the Astros computer systems and stealing player personnel information.

The team is alleged to have culled passwords from Astros general manager Jeff Lunhow's time with St. Louis to break into his secure accounts and access team information.

The bombshell report is sure to have major ramifications for the 2011 World Series champions, but Twitter made lemons into lemonade and immediately turned the report into a meme under the hashtag #AstrosPassword, and Extra Mustard has rounded up some of the best.
