You're right. More Lima info from a NYTimes article:

Lima swooped into the Mets' clubhouse late Thursday morning wearing a silver three-piece suit, a black fedora and diamond earrings roughly the size of a bottle cap. He primped and preened for photographers in front of his new jersey (No. 99) and promptly proclaimed that he owned more than 2,000 suits.

"I've never worn the same one twice," he said

You say "final note" as if this is the last we will hear from Jose Lima. You will be proven wrong!! Rickey and Lima, who will form the third prong of the Holy Trinity?

Meanwhile, the yankees invited scott erickson to camp.

in somewhat related news, Arby's is still offering 4 roast beef sandwhiches for $5.
One final note on Jose Lima. According to Prospectus, Lima amazingly holds both the AL and NL records for worst single-season ERA for a pitcher with at least 30 starts. The AL record was set last year when he had a 6.99 ERA. The only favorable thing I can say about Lima's season is that he had a 3.79 ERA in July.

I like the way the Times described the Lima deal:

"The Mets signed another player Tuesday who fits into the nothing-to-lose category."

Except, you know, baseball games.

Oh, hi everybody!

From the "Bad Idea Jeans" Department:

maybe the Mets should not base their ad campaign for this year around the playoffs. for example, they have an ad on the back page of the post today that reads "Plans for October?"

let's play consistent .500 baseball first.
It's Lima Time!
Mets sign Lima to minor league deal. ugh.
