"I Meant to Do That"

Rangers lost again. It’s now to the point that we look for the fun wherever we can in baseball. Like the “intentional walk”. What is that? You can’t find a more defeatist attitude anywhere in sports. Does Football have the intentional dropped pass? Is there a “I meant to miss” free throw in basketball? But in baseball, we have, “Well I doubt we could get this guy out…might as well let him have first base…” What is Eeyore pitching? So they intentionally throw the ball way outside 4 times and let the guy walk to first. If it was me I’d at least have fun with it and throw it way over the catcher’s head. Or throw it AT the guy. Or roll it in. “Intentional walk”. Sheesh..
