Is This What You Want Company to See?

Kazuhisa Ishii pitches like my childhood bedroom looked.

All was forgiven for Ishii amid Tuesday night's Dodger victory over Arizona, even though he pitched almost identically to his dreary first start April 3.

Once again, Ishii threw three shutout innings and struggled mightily in the fourth. The two differences were that 1) in his second start, he avoided the knockout blow that came in the form of a bases-loaded triple in his first start, making it through six innings, and 2) instead of pitching for a 2-1, red-hot Dodger team, he was pitching for a 3-5, ice-cold Dodger team. It's all about perspective.

Nevertheless, Ishii remains a slopfest on the mound - pitches strewn about everywhere like clothes and toys all over the floor.
