The stupidest booing is when a pitcher throws over to first base, followed by the intentional walk.
Yeah, I never could understand why that gets booed. Seems that every damn time a pitcher does a pickoff move, they boo! Why the hell do's an accepted move. People should get over it.
It's generally because a pickoff attempt is successful very, very infrequently, and all it does is slow down the at-bat. One or two attempts, sure, but when you get to Steve Trachsel levels of bringing the game to a grinding halt, you're damned right I'm going to boo and expect the pitcher to sack up and deliver the pitch.
