ARE YOU READY FOR LIMA TIME? The Mets annonced today they have signed pitcher Jose Lima to a minor league deal. If by some feat of magic, Lima can re-create his 2004 season-13-5 4.07 ERA 170IP 34BB 93K-this could be a shrewed move. Lima throws mostly breaking balls and his big draw back is letting those pitches that don't break get launched out of the park. The biggest thing going for Lima is he's a live wire and with something to prove, this is not a bad move by Omar. If he can't pitch he goes home to the goregeous woman in the picture (that is Mrs. Lima) and if he can still get guys out, I get to use my binoculars at Shea for other things besides seeing you is warming up in the bullpen. < |
