Does anybody have a watch? Excuse me, can you tell me what time it is? Oh, what’s that you say? I’m sorry, I didn’t catch that. Could you repeat it? Oh, I see. Very good. It’s fucking LIMA TIME, baby!
From the Seattle Times:
The Mets placed Zambrano on the 60-day disabled list Sunday, and said he could be ready to pitch by spring training. Right-hander Jose Lima was brought up from Class AAA Norfolk to take Zambrano’s roster spot and started Sunday against Atlanta.
That’s right, Jose Lima is back. I know he’s washed up and I know he was never that good to begin with, but the game he pitched in the 2004 NLDS against the Cardinals was all I needed to fall in love with Lima. That day he was magical, throwing a complete game 5-hit shut out against the mighty Cardinals to stave off elimination. It was Lima’s first complete game in three years and after every big out and at the end of every inning he would point to the sky, as if he knew exactly what kind of a miracle he was participating in. Never has a pitcher exhibited more intensity or joy.
