Brewers - Acquired Shouse

Brewers - Acquired P Brian Shouse from the Texas Rangers for IF Enrique Cruz.

Thank goodness that Shouse got away from the Rangers - I still get him confused with Ron Mahay.  Normally, that isn’t a problem since they seem to always pitch as well or as poorly as the other one, but at some point, I’d like to be able to figure out which one has great hair and big cheekbones and which one has the goatee and used to play outfield in the Red Sox organization.  Now, I can tell by the laundry.  Now, I can tell the Enrique Cruzes apart - this is the utility prospect that the Brewers got in the Rule 5 draft from the Mets, not the non-prospect that the Mets currently have.  Cruz might get a utility job in the majors someday, but he has to build on a successful 2005 season in Huntsville because his glove at short is marginal.

Who cares about Shouse, the Red Sox got Brad Baker back!

Brian Shouse was born in Effingham, Illinois. As in "Let's have steak tonight, dear, I couldn't bear to eat any more of that Effingham."
