You have to admire the perseverance of Jose Lima. The Dominican-born pitcher is somehow still playing professional baseball despite being about a decade past his prime. Since going 21-10 for Houston in 1999, Lima has been no better than mediocre but always manages to do just enough to garner a look-see by some low-level ML team. Sometimes, it pays off: He went 13-5 for the Dodgers in 2004.
Most times it doesn't: 4-6 for Detroit with a 7.77 ERA in 2002 and 5-16 for KC in 2005.
Yet, after toiling for almost two years in Japan, Lima Time is back in the States pitching for the independent Camden Riversharks. With the dearth of pitching among the MLB's worst teams, Lima will certainly be called on in the near future. It will be a triumph for career clingers with hot wives everywhere.
