Kei Igawa

While taking the 7:40 out of New York City, I listened to a recorded version of Fantasy Focus on XM 175.  Jeff Erickson's guest was fantasy baseball celebrity Sam Walker, the author of Fantasyland.  The conversation turned to Kei Igawa and some ribbing about having him on your fantasy team.  

This brought to mind a trade offer I recently received with Igawa in it.  I didn't follow-up on the offer because I just don't like what I've seen of the Yankees $46MM man.

I've had the opportunity to see portions of Igawa's starts, and I'm not impressed.  He seems so hittable.  With a BAA of .279, I can't even cling to the delusion that he has been unlucky.

Am I missing something?  Does someone have a different impression?
