A Travis Ishikawa Appreciation Post

March 31, 2011

The writing was on the wall for months. Someone was going to get cut, probably sooner rather than later, and Ishi was high on the chopping block. So I can’t say it was a surprise when the news came in yesterday that he was DFA’d. We wish him the best of luck. One half of selfish-me wants Seattle to pick him up, and the other half wants him to clear waivers to go to Fresno. Really though, I just hope he gets a chance, somewhere.

He deserves that. He’s a World Series Champion, after all.

Meanwhile, never forget:

Once a Giant, always a Giant.

    Yeah, Ish will definitely be missed. I’m like you, I’d like to see him in Fresno, but most of all, I want him playing and doing well.

    I was always rooting for him to start. Definitely argued for him over Nick Johnson/Adam LaRoche and yes, Aubrey Huff (when they signed him). Had good numbers in certain situations. There was just never a place for him :\ Best of luck to you, Ishi. You’ll find a job somewhere.
