Jose Lima Passes Away At Age 37

Reports are coming in that former MLB pitcher Jose Lima died early this morning at his Los Angeles home of an apparent heart attack.  Enrique Rojas at ESPNdeportes.com quotes Lima's wife:

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

This is a tragic loss at far too young an age.

Jose Lima seared a place into the memories of Dodger fans with an unlikely 2004 season when he was 13-5 with a 4.07 (101 ERA+) and capped the year by twirling a 4-0 shutout against the Cardinals for the Dodgers first playoff win since the 1988 World Series.

It was Lima Time on October 9, 2004, but it is hard to believe that it was Lima's time this morning.  Very, very sad news.
