Well, if you can’t deflate the baseballs, maybe try this. Major League Baseball confirms a federal investigation into the illegal breach of the Houston Astros baseball operations database allegedly by the St. Louis Cardinals. Both teams say they are aware and cooperating. The database, nicknamed Ground Control according to the Houston Chronicle, was hacked last year and a law enforcement official told ABC News it contained internal information about Houston’s potential trades, scouting reports, contract information and other material that, if compromised, could be to a competing team’s advantage. The commissioner’s office will wait until the investigation is over to determine whether discipline is warranted.

In a move sure to prompt cries of “food police… food police”, the Food & Drug Administration announced on Tuesday that will require manufacturers to phase out partially-hydrogenated oils from processed foods over the next three years after determining it is not safe for human consumption. Trans fat, of course, is commonly found in junk food like potato chips, cookies and French fries and is the primary source of artery-clogging trans fats. And, many doctors say that trans fats are some of the worst fats that people can consume.

Brad will be back in NYC Wednesday morning, but on Tuesday he was in Derry, NH, taking in the first town hall meeting Jeb Bush held as a presidential candidate. Bush professed his “love” for New Hampshire because its voters care about fiscal responsibility, then talked for an hour on job growth, entitlement cuts, and regulatory reform. Bush has identified New Hampshire as the cornerstone of his 2016 campaign, which is probably a good thing given that polls seem to indicate he’s going to get trounced in Iowa

You could call him the ultimate Washington outsider. The Donald is running for president. Real-estate mogul and reality-television star Donald Trump says he will seek the Republican nomination for president in 2016. Trump made the announcement Tuesday morning at the midtown Manhattan tower that bears his name. In his announcement, the 12th high-profile Republican to join the race took his shots at politicians in general, the other candidates, and the White House’s current inability to navigate the world economy. Are his opponents and the Washington establishment taking his run seriously?
