Jose Lima Passes At 37

Of a heart attack; he was in town as recently as Friday for the interleague game with Detroit.

Signed by the Dodgers as a non-roster invitee in 2004, he posted his third-best career ERA with the team that year and also garnered his only career postseason win — and the Dodgers' first since the 1988 World Series win — in Game 3 of the 2004 NLDS, a complete game shutout of the Cardinals. He spent two more years in the majors, one with Kansas City and a partial season with the Mets before leaving MLB for good.

RIP Jose. You were a fun guy to have around.

Update: Thoughts from Jon, Tony Jax, ITD, and SOSG.

I was at that playoff win in 2004. The energy level in the stadium was huge, amazing, awesome—I'd never experienced anything like that before. If I recall correctly, not only did Lima own St. Louis, but Shawn Green hit 2 home runs.

It will always be Lima Time somewhere.
Should I feel worse because his wife had great boobies? God bless 'im, he snagged a hottie.
RIP Jose Lima - you will certainly be missed - good local recap here: http://bit.ly/93uVc3
Snagged a hottie, then got the clap when he cheated on her.
