Manfred's penalty was toothless for a franchise worth billions of dollars, and time will tell whether the get-out-of-jail free card will embolden other teams to try (or continue) to do the same - and whether they'll take the commissioner's warning against future violations any more seriously than a teenager who gets off with a warning.
