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?
you can say what you want but the guy wins games. hes won 13 or more games 2 of the last three years. im not saying hes fantasy material, but hes a definate number three pitcher in the majors.
As a Dodgers fan who saw most of Ishii's games last season, I'll say that 80% of that win total is because of luck, not because of pitching ability. I can't tell you how many times Ishii gave up multiple run innings only to have the "mighty" Dodger offense come out of nowhere to bail him out. If you have Ishii's run support to Odalis Perez last season, he would've won 20 games and been a candidate for the Cy Young in the NL.
