I've never really heard a good explanation of not bringing "Shousie" back. Yes, he's old (39) but he's a crafty lefty set-up man...those guys can pitch into their late 50s. And, yes, I also know he was pretty poor with inherited runners. Maybe this was because Ned Yost was f_cking clueless and didn't know how to use him. Need more proof? The Brewers finished 92-70, yet were only 34-35 when Shouse appeared. Was it because Shouse sucked (2.81 ERA, 1.169 WHIP), or Ned was clueless? I say sign him, he can't cost all that much.
