So there you were reading the newspaper over a nice $5 small smoothie from Planet Juice and you see that Jose Lima kicked the bucket. It’s no big deal.
Um, in the D.R., this was some serious news. Just look at how the slums come together for a guy who went 89-102 with a 5.26 ERA in 13 seasons.

Premise of Video: Our friends at Vin Scully Is My Homeboy searched relentlessly for a video of Lima Time being buried because they track all things Dodgers and this is how bloggers report news these days. This video, shot by some guy who obviously knew how to handle baseball player burials, goes the aerial route. A view from up top.
Climax of Video: We swear that you can see Billy Beane at the 2:10 mark signing a 13-year-old left hander.
Conclusion: His widow is on the market. Of course we are efforting her to offer our shoulder to cry on.
