    Wow. What a shock! My sympathies. He always seemed like a really fun guy to be around.

    Unfortunately at that age, it's natural to wonder if he doesn't share something in common with those wrestlers that have gone that young.

    I wonder if he is only among the first of too many.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Ken Caminiti was probably the first.

    Lima was probably closer to 42 but still, its too young.

    Could be but even for a wrestler, that's pretty young. The ones of this generation seem to be passing because of sleeping pills and painkillers. The guys from the 80s are the ones that seem to be passing from steroid abuse.

    It was Lima Time in Heaven. RIP.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I'll never forget the homerun he gave up to Adam Dunn that went into the Ohio River. RIP Jose Lima.
