You may remember Jose Lima, the pitcher who won 21 games with the Astros in 1999 and played for the Dodgers in 2006.
Now do you remember? Anyway, Lima Time is back…sort of. Technically, he’s 13 hours ahead.
Lima’s career has enjoyed a bit of a renaissance. Well, for at least a game. From EAST WINDUP CHRONICLE:
[Lima] stepped to the mound on a temperate May evening in Seoul and pitched with the valor and energy of a man half his age, powering his Kia Tigers to a 12-1 win over the Worri Heroes.
The win was his first in Korea, and dropped his ERA from 7.43 to 5.70. Lima gave up a first inning double to the gap by Jun June-ho, but Lima battled back, striking out the vaunted Cliff Brumbaugh to end the inning. As Lima stepped off the mound, he jabbed his first into the air, stomping toward the dugout triumphant.
A 5.70 ERA? Sounds like Lima’s giving it up all over the globes.
