>>121450385the ball doesn't threaten the stumps or body so theres no need to defend but it would be risky to try and score because of where it bounces and the ball moving away so he just leaves it
Rickie Fowler. Average golfer, paid millions just to wear funny clothes, married internet heartthrob Alison Stokke, still beloved despite not winning a whole bunch, will eventually retire from golf (so he can play more golf).

>Maddux has been credited by many of his teammates with a superior ability to out-think his opponents and anticipate results. Braves catcher Eddie Pérez tells the story of Maddux intentionally allowing a home run to the Astros' Jeff Bagwell, in anticipation of facing Bagwell in the playoffs months later. Maddux felt Bagwell would instinctively be looking for the same pitch again, which Maddux would then refuse to throw. On another occasion while sitting on the bench, Maddux once told his teammates, "Watch this, we might need to call an ambulance for the first base coach." The batter, Los Angeles' José Hernández, drove the next pitch into the chest of the Dodgers' first base coach. Maddux had noticed that Hernández, who'd been pitched inside by Braves pitching during the series, had shifted his batting stance slightly. On another occasion, a former teammate, outfielder Marquis Grissom, recalled a game in 1996 when Maddux was having trouble spotting his fastball. Between innings, he told Grissom, "Gary Sheffield is coming up next inning. I am going to throw him a slider and make him just miss it so he hits it to the warning track." The at-bat went as Maddux had predicted.>Early in the 2000 season, Maddux was asked by sportswriter Bob Nightengale what had been the most memorable at-bat of his pitching career. Maddux said it was striking out Dave Martinez to end a regular season game. Nightengale was surprised Maddux hadn't picked a postseason game, or a more famous player. Maddux explained: "I remember that one because he got a hit off me in the same situation (full count, bases loaded, two out in the 9th inning) seven years earlier. I told myself if I ever got in the same situation again, I'll pitch him differently. It took me seven years, but I got him."

I’m not sure if this thread is geared towards actual intelligence or sporting IQ. But I will share this sporting intelligence story that is popular in the NFL. Ed Reed spent weeks preparing to play against Peyton Manning by defending go routes a particular way. Knowing the autist that Peyton is, Ed Reed knew that Peyton would watch all of the defensive tape in preparation for the game. When the game happened and Ed Reed got his chance on a go route he ran just like he had been doing for weeks but turned at the last second before Manning had even thrown to defend the other side of the field. He picked off Manning by outsmarting him, clip very related. Features Belichick calling it the best play he had ever seen a free safety make too. https://youtu.be/GQrZKveWgOk
