You're right, that does hurt. Still, it's only spring training, so numbers don't mean too much.
I still think Ishii's a legitimate 2nd or 3rd fantasy starter, although his uncertainty factor is obviously much higher than with most other pitchers. It'll be interesting to see whether he's rattled by this poor outing or not.
Right now, I wouldnt put him into my starting lineup, but lets wait, his time may come, after he has played a couple of games...so he may getting cheaper now, then sit him....and it could work out great!
Yeah, it's just spring training, and it's not a whole lot of innings pitched. Basically, you can go two ways with this information: either decide that Ishii's risk is too high, and let somebody else take their chances on him, or you can talk this up and hope for a bargain.
I still like his chances of succeeding, but the truth is that there is no less well-known commodity in fantasy baseball right now. But that's what makes the game fun...
Ahh, good. He wasn't listed in the stats section on the official L.A. Dodgers web page, but after some digging I managed to pull up an official roster and he was on it. Also, like you said, Baseball Weekly has him listed as starting tommorow against Colorado. Whew, thought we had lost Ishii to injury or drunken Japanese businessmen or something.
