Often times, an intentional walk is given because of the situation and not fear of the hitter. Take a turtle like Westrum. 10 SB in his entire career (probably on the back end of double-steals.)

You have a runner at third with one out. Instead of playing your infield in, giving the hitter more opportunity, walk the turtle to set up an inning ending DP, and let your infielders play back in their normal spots.
