Let’s not forget about the time a Marlins intentional walk resulted in a loss

Steve Cishek was on the mound. Commissioner Rob Manfred is exploring different ways to shorten baseball games, and it seems taking away the four-pitch aspect of an intentional walk is one of those ways.

By Joe Lucia  The first reliever is off of the trade market – the Miami Marlins are dealing ex-closer Steve Cishek to the St. Louis Cardinals. Cishek will probably roll off a run of something like two runs in 25 innings after the trade, because that’s just what happens with the Cardinals.
