R.I.P. Jose Lima

Jose Lima, 1972-2010

In 1999, Lima was 21-10, 3.58 ERA, All-Star Game appearance, for the Central Division champions, the Houston Astros.

In 2004, Lima pitched the Los Angeles Dodgers to their first playoff win in 16 years, their first since their World Series championship in 1988.

Lima, who coined the phrase "Lima Time", was one of the most eccentric, free-spirited players to come around in a long time.

Lima died last night of a heart attack in Los Angeles. He was 37.
