His last start was a shutout (1-0) against the Washington Nationals. He gave up no walks and struck out 12 batters in 8 innings (his previous several starts ended with him having 14-15 strikeouts in 7 innings!). All year Don Mattingly pulled him or skipped his starts so he could physically develop in his later 20s as a dominant force on the mound. I think he would have hit the 20 strikeout mark many times.
Every game the cameras would cover his antics, having fun in the dugout. I was surprised to hear that on his successful escape from Cuba, his mother fell off the boat and Jose jumped in to save her! I don't look forward to watching the end of the season without him. It will be like Edgar Alan Poe was coaching the team, "Nevermore, nevermore..."

Dreams allow escape from the passage of Time.
