The Ishii Watch

Postby Chicago » Sun Mar 17, 2002 7:07 pm

I'd like to dedicate this thread to following Ishii throughout the season:

03/17/2002

Ishii (1-1) retired just two batters, allowing six runs, six hits and two walks.

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!

Ouch. But I know, it's only spring training, right? RIGHT?

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...

Whats Happening Hot Stuff?

I must be out of it. What happened to Ishii? I don't see him on the Dodgers roster.

Where are you looking for the roster information? The info I have is that he'll pitch tomorrow against Hampton and the Rockies.

Ishii!!!!!!!

Postby Chicago » Fri Apr 05, 2002 5:21 pm

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.

:-D The drunken businessman version would've made quite a story, though...

Any predictions regarding how he'll do tomorrow?
