It's Always Lima Time

Illustration for article titled Its Always Lima Time

So here's a question: Whatever happened to Jose Lima? Everybody's favorite 7.80 ERA pitcher with the rather disproportioned wife seemed to have vanished after being mercifully released by the Mets last year. But you cannot keep Jose Lima down. You underestimate Jose Lima at your own risk.

Yep, Lima will never retire. He's now pitching in the Mexican League, and you know what? He's doing quite well. For Saraperos de Saltillo, he's leading the league in innings and second in victories. It was to our considerable surprise that Jose Lima is only 34 years old; we figured him for at least 55.

Someone's gonna sign him by the end of this year, and we have a creeping fear it's going to be the Cardinals.
