Jose Lima Closing Time

Jose Lima died of a heart attack. He was 37.

In the past I've looked for almost any excuse to post the above picture of Jose and his then wife Melissa (for obvious reasons). You'll hear plenty of players reminiscing about how great a guy Jose was and that's fine. What will stick with me is the fact that after he divorced Melissa he got remarried and did not pay his child support. Dead beat dad.

At least now he won't be giving anyone else genital herpes.

For the record - Lima was 89-102 with a 5.26 ERA. For that he was paid over $24 million in his career. Which I guess was not enough money for him to be able to afford to pay child support.
