They shouldn't IMO.  An IBB is just a deliberate walk in a mechanical sense, right?  If someone manages to hit the ball during an IBB, it doesn't violate any rules, and if they strike out that's cool too.  I like that.Then, um, trade him and forget about it.  Desmond could actually fetch some nice pieces in return, unlike most of the players we have to trade.  Failing that, it never hurts to have a good backup MI.
How often has there been a WP or a batter swinging at it. Thats all I'm saying. They are always looking at ways to speed the game up. This seems like a logical place to look... IMO.
