    RIP Jose Lima. Wow I just saw him at a Dodger game just a couple of weeks ago. Very sad.

    Lima kind of puts sports in perspective more than most ballplayer deaths for me. Because I think it’s impossible to have rooted for a team that had Lima and not loathed him at some point. But that doesn’t mean you wished honest misfortune upon him. RIP.

  4. Read the article and the guy isn’t convincing at all. Sure, Ryno doesn’t have a lot of managerial experience. However, he has a lot of playing experience, and most people agree that Ryno played the game right.

    Thus, it would follow that Ryno would be an excellent manager.

    I like his brand of baseball. I’m not a big fan of Lou’s.

      I think the article is convincing. He’s not saying that Sandberg can’t or won’t be a good manager. He’s saying that the reasons to make Sandberg manager involve a lot of wishcasting, nostalgia, and narrative. It would make people feel good. It would be a good story. But if you were simply looking at qualifications, Sandberg would be a dicey or at least premature candidate. I think that’s totally fair.

    RIP Jose Lima, you made that 2003 season fun for us Royals fans. Let’s not remember that 2005 season though.

    RIP José Lima. You may be gone but it will always be Lima time in my heart!

  13. Jose Lima was fun in Houston. Passionate. We loved him. No more Taco Cabana commercials of Rock101 Lima Time, ever. Crazy, I was looking his stats up about a hour ago!

    If I may pay a quick homage to Mr. Lima, I’d love to use MLBTR as my grieving box:

    I had the pleasure of meeting Jose Lima when he was on the Astros, he came to NY and I happened to be a lucky fan who was in the front row, near the Astros dugout during Batting Practice.

    Jose came up to my friend and I and started chatting away, when I told him we had something in common; the same last name.

    Jose lit up light a Christmas tree, like he had found a long lost relative. He was super excited and kept asking me what island I was from “The DR? Puerto Rico? Cuba?”

    When I told him I was actually from an island called Sicily, he rubbed his forehead in confusion; “I don’t think I’m familiar with that island,” he said.

    RIP Jose, you made me a life long fan that day, and your spirit will be missed.
