Shaw continued his stellar season this past week by hitting .300 with five runs, four RBI and two home runs, including one in Pittsburgh which went *SPLASH* into the Alleghany River. Shaw now has a career-high 21 home runs (and counting) and 69 RBI, just two off his personal best which he set last season in Boston … in 145 games.
Packers fans (↑ UP)
This is the last week without football until 2018. With Green Bay once again expected to be a playoff and Super Bowl contender, the excitement will only be ramping up as soon as the team reports to training camp next Wednesday.
Nigel Hayes, ex-Badgers forward (--> EVEN)
Hayes didn’t have the best summer-league stats a couple of weeks ago, but he said last week that he's been invited to the New York Knicks' rookie minicamp this summer. One step at a time.

Carlos Torres, Brewers reliever (↑ UP)
Torres was very effective out of the bullpen last year, but has seen his ERA hover over 4 for much of 2017 -- until this past week, that is. Torres tossed 4 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing two hits, to lower his season ERA to 3.96.
Tyler Webb, Brewers reliever (↓ DOWN)
Looking to add a left-hander to the bullpen, Milwaukee traded for Webb from the Yankees. Things did not go well. He allowed a grand slam on his first pitch for the Brewers and in two innings of work gave up six hits … and thus found himself headed to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
