Baseball folks we lost in 2010

Over at Marty Noble writes the obligatory “remembering the baseball people who died in the past year” column.

I sort of hate to see this column every year, but I’m glad we have it too. We need it. We remember guys like George Steinbrenner and Ernie Harwell because they were giants, but we so easily forget people like Ralph Houk. Jose Lima. Mike Cuellar. Many, many others.  It’s a long list. As Marty says, too long, but that’s just kind of how death works for better or for worse.

And no, it doesn’t make it any easier to sing the list along with that Jim Carroll song. I tried. Still kind of sad.

    Well, as Rev. Gary Davis sang, death don’t have no mercy in this land.

    It’s heartening to see that even though he may have passed away, it’s still (and might always be) Lima Time somewhere.
