Magic Johnson May Face Penalty On Cano Comments

Los Angeles Dodgers owner may face some sort of penalty from Major League Baseball after he made comments about Robinson Cano earlier in the week. It is against the rules to discuss potential free agents while still under contract with other teams, especially if it will affect their free agency value. With the Dodgers coming out publicly and saying they would not pursue the All Star second basemen this is the definition of affecting free agency values as no other team could likely afford to pursue Cano. General Managers around the league commented that their comments were watched a lot more closely over the past year then in recent memory so maybe this is another Bud Selig media crackdown. I cannot see anything more than a slap on the wrist or a meager fine but who knows.
