The latest N.L. voting update from the 2015 Nihilist All-Star Game.

If the Cardinals are so good at hacking, why did Buster Posey just pass Yadier Molina in the voting? And given that former Royal Nori Aoki has passed Giancarlo Stanton in the thing, maybe we should be looking at either Royals fans for hacking or, perhaps, Giants fans.

Anyway, here are the results. If you need me I’ll be laughing myself to death reading tweets from Cardinals fans explaining away the investigation of their alleged corporate espionage as a function of everyone else’s jealousy about how great and successful they are.
