Ishii is terrible, and so is Phillips. The Mets needed a pitcher and the Dodgers needed a catcher. That's why this trade went down. If anyone is using either Ishii or Phillips as a fantasy option, you have my sympathies.
EDIT: BTW, Ishii is not a fine #3 starter. He never has been. Sure, he's shown flashes of brilliance, but when your career WHIP is higher than Bartolo Colon's cholersterol, then we have a problem. Ishii couldn't even keep his starting job in the injury-ridden Los Angeles rotation last year in one of the best pitching parks in the majors. What makes you think that he's anything other than terrible?
