    Everything in Baseball is infinitely harder to do than it looks.

    Genius move!

    Thanks for that SW. I thought I'd seen it all.

    In May of 1998, in the ninth inning of a game with the Giants, bases loaded and Barry Bonds at the plate, the Diamondbacks were up 8-6 with two outs, and Diamondbacks Manager Buck Showalter held up four fingers to call for an intentional walk. It had only ever been done four times in the history of Major League Baseball, the last time in 1944. The next batter, Brent Mayne, flied out to right to end the game.

    Weird, but effective. I suspect we may see that again. Mostly for the pitcher's piece of mind.
