    It's Lima Time at Shea!

    http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news;_yl...v=ap&type=lgns

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Jose Lima agreed to a minor league contract with the Mets on Tuesday, giving the team another pitching option for its starting rotation.

    Lima would get a $600,000, one-year contract if he is added to the 40-man roster. He also would have the chance to earn about $450,000 in performance bonuses -- the same deal the Mets gave Darren Oliver in December.

    The 33-year-old right-hander was 5-16 with a 6.99 ERA last season in 32 starts for the Kansas City Royals. He gave up 219 hits in 168 2-3 innings, walking 61 and striking out 80.

    In 2004, Lima went 13-5 with a 4.07 ERA for the Los Angeles Dodgers, walking just 34 in 170 1-3 innings. He has an 89-98 career record

    An NL All-Star in 1999, Lima has a 5.21 ERA in 344 major league games with Detroit, Houston, the Dodgers and Kansas City.

    New York heads to spring training with a projected rotation of Pedro Martinez, Tom Glavine, Steve Trachsel, Victor Zambrano and Aaron Heilman.

    What a colossal mistake. Did the Mets just hire DanO?

    Omar scratches his belly and thinks
    His pitching is fine, but he wants it to stink
    Lima-Time is old and reeks
    He'll give up taters for weeks and weeks

    Bombs away but we're ok
    Bombs away at o-ld Shea
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    At least Omar was smart enough not to give Lima a major league deal much less a 3 year $24M deal.

    Lima was probably signed to give depth in case of injuries. Much like the Reds signing Tuffy Rhodes, I'm sure he's not expected to contribute.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
