Jose Lima Dead At 37

Former Mets pitcher Jose Lima died today at home in Los Angeles. He was 37 years old. According to his wife, Lima died of a heart attack.

Lima pitched for the Mets in 2006 when he made four starts and was 0-4 with a 9.87 ERA. He was best known for his years with the Astros in the late 90’s. In 1999 he went 21-10 for the Astros and was an All-Star. He was as flamboyant as they come when he pronounced his starts as “Lima Time”.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
