RIP Jose Lima

Jose Lima, former New York Mets pitcher, dies of apparent heart attack at age 37

Former major league pitcher Jose Lima, who ended his career with the Mets in 2006, has died at age 37, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced on Sunday.

According to the Aguilas Cibaenas, Lima's winter ball team in the Dominican Republic, he died of an apparent heart attack.

His wife, Dorca Astacio, told espndeportes.com that "Jose was complaining while sleeping and I just thought he was having a nightmare," Astacio told the site. "I called the paramedics, but they couldn't help him."

"This is a shock for us because Lima was a young man who seemed healthy and nobody imagined this," said Tomas Jimenez, manager of the Aguilas Cibaenas.

The man who coined the phrase "Lima Time" about his stints in games finished his career with the Mets in 2006, going 0-4 with a 9.87 ERA in four starts. Lima's best season in 1999 got him an All-Star game selection. He went 21-10 in 35 starts with a 3.58 ERA for the NL Central champion Astros, finishing fourth in the league's Cy Young vote.

In 13 seasons in the major league, Lima was 89-102 with a 5.26 ERA.

After his depature from the majors, Lima continued to play baseball. In 2007 and 2008, he appeared in 22 games for the Saltillo Saraperos of the Mexican League and made 11 appearances with the Camden Riversharks of the independent Atlantic League, respectively.

LOL. I'm sorry about your friend. Oh wait you didn't know him? GTFO.

For the record, I expect people to be disrespectful when I pass.
