MLB INSTITUTES SOME RULES CHANGES one of those rules changes involve the intentional walk:
MLB said the “no-pitch intentional walk” will now be awarded after “the defensive team’s manager signal(s) a decision to the home plate umpire to intentionally walk the batter.  Following the signal of the manager’s intention, the umpire will immediately award first base to the batter.”
As I consider myself a baseball fan but never a purist we shall see if this is what it takes to improve the pace of baseball games.

BTW, last year - after 108 years of waiting - the Cubs won the world series.
