Originally posted by jfkfcSomeone will sign Lima, and Paniagua for that matter. I think the adage in baseball, in regards to success in the Majors, goes something like: if a guy does it once, that means he can do it. There will be a pitching coach of sorts, in one organization or another, that looks at some film of Lima and says "I can work with this guy, he has good stuff," then the team signs him. Look at guys who get chance after chance, and then finally it pays off for some.
The Reds and Don Gullett will nab him, he'll be impressive for the first couple months of next year and then he'll flame out and be the same guy he's been for the past 2 years. I can almost guarantee it.
Introducing BobHollySTILLRules v2.0. Now focusing less on quantity and more on quality!
Steve Bellisari, Strong Safety, St. Louis Rams. He made the team...and then got put on injured reserve! (sighs)
The guy will be 35 in a few weeks and has 206 wins. He's only won 20 twice in his career and has averaged (tossing out his bad years - to give his BEST possible average - let's do 97-200 and 2002-2005)
