The St. Louis Cardinals have terminated the contract of their scouting director, Chris Correa, after an “imposed leave of absence,” a lawyer for Cardinals executives said Thursday.

James G. Martin, lawyer for chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. and general manager John Mozeliak, declined to comment on the reasons for his separation or any details of an investigation into the hacking of a Houston Astros database.

Martin said that the Cardinals were continuing to investigate. He declined to comment when asked whether any employee has admitted hacking the Astros, citing an ongoing governmental investigation.

Correa declined to comment.

In a prepared statement, Correa lawyer Nicholas Williams wrote, “Mr. Correa denies any illegal conduct. The relevant inquiry should be what information did former St. Louis Cardinals employees steal from the St. Louis Cardinals organization prior to joining the Houston Astros, and who in the Houston Astros organization authorized, consented to, or benefitted from that roguish behavior.”

Correa has admitted hacking into a Houston Astros database but said it was only to verify whether the Astros had stolen proprietary data, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation.

Correa did not leak any Astros data, and is not responsible for additional hacks that the FBI has alleged occurred or leaking any data, said the source.

we have a $5 lunch special that is very popular with the older customers. policy states we can not discount an item already discounted, some of our new people have problems with it i am with a customer who has just ordered 2 of the specials and asks me to put the senior discount on it.

me “i’m sorry but i’m not allowed to put a discount on that as it is already discounted”

customer “well they did last time why cant you now?”

me *not my general manager is next to me at the exp window as we are short handed* “i’m sorry that must have been a new person who was unsure of the policy we will work on that but i can not add a discount to a discount”

customer pays and is visibly upset that i refused to put the discount on. note i am one of 2 employees not management that is still there from opening almost a year ago.

It's sad that I was a CBJ/Blackhawks girl but the fanreaction is making me really bitter towards the Blackhawks organization. Like I still love the core of Chicago but the disrespect towards Arty and Dano is making me stupidly angry. Also the chicago tribune article says: "I could be wrong, but I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman consigned the young, talented, money-hunting winger to one of the NHL’s maximum security prisons." like goodbye you assholes

yeah like Columbus is great and ppl are being a dick about it

Please fire me. We recently hired a new general manager, who tends to over-explain very simple things. Today, regrettably, I asked him to double check a tax exemption profile I filled out, as it was federal and I’m more accustomed to state. The thirty minute seminar ended with him explaining how to use a stapler remover.
