The Simpsons Predicted The St. Louis Cardinals Spying Scandal

The Simpsons predicted the FIFA scandal in a 2014 episode, but it appears they were well ahead of the curve 16 years ago, when they hinted that MLB  was spying on activities, with a Cardinals player as the poster boy for the gag.

In the episode, Bart is on a drug aimed at helping boys with ADD called "Focusin" and makes claims that MLB is spying on his activities. Mark McGwire comes in and distracts the crowd with dingers.

The Cardinals of course, have made headlines after it was revealed the FBI was investigating them for spying on the Houston Astros' activities and hacking information. The genius of the early Simpsons episodes continues to shine through after all these years.
