Minaya is apparently so fixated on assembling an all-Hispanic version of the Metropolitans that he has sunk to signing Jose Lima to a minor league contract.
Yes folks, THAT Jose Lima, the one the Royals continued to throw out there in 2005 despite the fact that Lima was historically bad and each additional start cost the team incentive money.
To put some perspective on how bad Lima was, keep in mind this stat: No pitcher in the history of major league baseball has had a season in which he started as many games as Lima did last year (32) and posted a higher ERA (6.99).
But he's good enough for Omar. It must be nice to literally burn money. I'll try it if I ever win the lottery.
