This is a sad thing for us all to come to terms with, but Jose Lima — along with his, uh, ample wife — is not going to be in the majors next season. But worry not: There's always Korea.

Yep, you're gonna have to go to Korea to see Lima Time this year.

The Kia Tigers, cellar dwellers of the Korean League, are on the verge of signing Lima to become their new ace. According to the Korea Times, "The Tigers hope that Lima could be a top-of-the-rotation starter for them."



Lima would be the crown jewel in an offseason in which the Tigers have also signed fellow Major League castoffs Wilson Valdez, Jae-Weong Seo, and Hee-Seop Choi.

Ha: Check out that blockbuster offseason! (We had been wondering what ever happened to Hee-Seop.) The Koreans, we tell ya, they're gonna love Ms. Lima. She should keep him employed in some league across this planet for a few more years now, you'd have to think.
