    Shocking... He never was the greatest pitcher, but he was always entertaining to watch. "Lima Time" will live on forever.

    And he had a hot wife to look forward to. Too bad.

    Re: Jose Lima has died

    It's a sad sad day. Lima time, although he only played for the Dodgers for a year, was a joy to watch. I'll never forget his game 3 gem in the playoffs a few years back against the Cardinals.

    RIP Lima time.

    Re: Jose Lima has died

    must have used steroids to be having a heart attack at 37 and still seemed pretty healthy. it will be interesting to see how many athletes in the next 20 years we see go due to possible side effects to steroids.

    I dont know whether he used steroids or not, but I know a couple of people who had heart attacks in their 20s. Hoiberg would have had a heart attack (had his condition not been detected) in his 30s. Doesn't mean Fred was pumping steroids.

    Re: Jose Lima has died

    So Jim Fickes was also a steroid user? To paraphrase Denis Leary, "All I have to say is two words: Jim Ficks. Jogged, wrote a book on jogging, and he died of a massive heart attack when? When he was ******* jogging, that's when!"

    Sometimes it's just a person's time to go, regardless of whether they've ever roided or not.

    Re: Jose Lima has died

    Anybody else watch the documentary "Bigger, Stronger, Faster"? Steroids, while I still consider cheating, get a bad wrap when it comes to effecting the health of a person. Those who think steroids cause heart problems or other health issues should really watch that documentary.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?
