Levine said he called Angels president John Carpino and MLB, apologizing for the Trout comment. "My understanding is the matter is over."The comment in question, in case you missed it, came earlier today when Levine was asked about the Cano contract and Robbie's comments about no respect:

“If Mike Trout was here, I would recommend a 10-year contract. But for people over 30, I don’t think it makes sense.”
Sounds harmless, but it was enough to get Levine a call from MLB to investigate whether or not the comment constituted tampering. Such a Levine thing to do/say. Seriously, what is this guy's deal? He's like Donny from "The Big Lebowski". Completely out of his element, no frame of reference on anything, yet constantly opening his yap to say stuff that nobody wanted or needed him to say. How this man is employed in an incredibly high-ranking position anywhere, let alone for the most prestigious franchise in professional sports history is beyond me.
I've said this before and I'm going to keep saying it until it starts happening. Shut up, Randy. Shut the fuck up.
