Intentional walk first TWO batters, induce triple play on next pitch. I win.

Damn you I just thought of this after my last post and before I got to yours. Well-played.

EDIT: Sorry, I wrote this before I saw the posts above that made my point. My bad. You guys beat me to it.


Technically you could have a NO pitch inning. You could intentionally walk a guy, and pick him off first base. Then two more guys could be intentionally walked, and they could be picked off base too. In fact, if you intentially walk two guys, a pitcher could pick one off and then have the other one try to take an extra base while thats happening and have a fielder throw him out, thereby making it a no pitch inning and the pitcher only threw the ball twice to first base to get 3 outs. Take it to the ultimate, intentially walk the bases loaded, pick one guy off, and the fielders get two more outs due to bad baserunning by the other men on base, and the pitcher only threw once to first base and 3 outs have been gotten, and no pitches have been thrown!!

If we are going to bash the younger generations and their attention span I think the number of complete games will shoot back up when they decide to reduce the game to 6 or 7 innings...

What is the record for consecutive games striking out? Aaron Judge is up to 30. I bet the guy who bought his first game jersey for $160,000 is happy as hell. 🤑

Is it the younger generation with shorter attention spans? I seem to recall Selig and Manfred instituting the changes. They're not part of my generation.

36 is the record, held by Adam Dunn.

Playing a lot of fantasy baseball, I love it when my competitor's players go compete in the AS Home Run Derby. It messes up so many swings where it takes months to regain the form. A couple years ago it was Todd Fraiser who got messed up. There are always exceptions like Stanton who is literally a hitting monster, but for the other mortals (like Judge) , you might not see him regain form u til next year now. Most likely will cost the Yankees a playoff birth too.
