Something happened to Rangers shortstop Corey Seager on Friday that has only occurred with two other MLB players since 1950. Seager was intentionally walked with the bases loaded in the Rangers game against the Angels. The other two instances occurred with Josh Hamilton in 2008 and Barry Bonds in 1998. Hamilton’s bases loaded intentional walk in ’08 and Seager’s intentional walk on Friday both came via opposing manager Joe Maddon, per Sarah Langs.

Joe Madden and the Angels went on to win the game 9-6. But it was the reaction of superstar outfielder Mike Trout that stole the headlines following the game.

Corey Seager even looks confused while it was happening. But Mike Trout genuinely had to take a moment to process the decision made by his manager. Trout looked in casually, then looked around with a truly befuddled look on his face. I would guess that most fans felt the same way if they watched the game live.

For Seager, it is the ultimate sign of respect. Choosing to walk a player and force home a run rather than pitch to them speaks to how much a team believes in their ability. But the move still seems odd.

Corey Seager is undoubtedly a good hitter. However, Josh Hamilton was one of the best hitters in baseball in 2008. And Barry Bonds is arguably the greatest hitter of all-time. The Angels were also losing 3-2 at the time of the intentional walk. Joe Maddon was clearly willing to go down 4-2 if it meant not pitching to Seager with the bases loaded.

But Mike Trout’s reaction sums up how the majority of people felt about the decision.
