The Tale of the Tape: Shouse v. House

Like most of my clearly ill conceived notions, I'm giving this one a second chance. Last week, Derrick Turnbow snuck out a 60/40 victory over American Gladiator Turbo. This week, we'll pit another recently released former Brewer against an arbitrarily selected pop culture reference.

Brian Shouse turned 41 in September, and was released by the Red Sox this week, meaning it may very well be the end of the line for him. Shouse appeared in 201 games as a Brewer between 2006 and 2008, putting him in a tie for 20th place on the Brewers' all time games pitched list. He was primarily a lefty specialist, but did have one awesome three inning save against the Twins in 2007. 

His opponent: House. To the tale of the tape!
