Randy Johnson and.....Kazuhisa Ishii? 

It looks like we're getting Ishii in the Randy Johnson trade now. WTF?!?! I'm assuming that LA is forcing him on us for salary reasons or something, because there is no way in hell we'd actually WANT the guy, is there? Perhaps he'll be our 6th starter, or 5th if you assume that Kevin Brown is a goner. Maybe they got him to keep Matsui company. Ishii's away ERA last year was 5.14, and he walked as many as he struck out. His career away ERA (in MLB) is 4.87. If you take in account the extra offense in the AL, his ERA should be even higher. Then again, it should be better than Loaiza's and Vazquez's second half ERA, and he's been relatively healthy while he's be playing with the Dodgers (though he missed some games in 2002 afte he was hit in the face with a batted ball). I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens.
