We tackle four topics, all sparked by Joe Maddon's smarm-fest of a postgame press conference after Derek Jeter was hit with a pitch.
The Orioles seemed to have a lot of fun last night clinching the AL East. Buster said the biggest problem for Boston this year was the offense production dropping so dramatically in one year. Bogaerts, Pierzynski, and Bradley Jr. are the most obvious culprits. Also, Buster surmises that the Red Sox front office has to be a little uneasy with the fact that their best offensive player, David Ortiz, is in this LATE 30's.
Christopher Price, WEEI.com spoke with the guys about the new NFL drug policy and what it means for certain players in the league. He also spoke about the importance of getting Danny Amendola involved in the offense. The Patriots are still trying to find the BEST way to utilize Chandler Jones. And rookie Raiders QB Derek Carr is a bit of a wild-card heading into Sunday's match up.

LeBron James will be starring in a movie as... LeBron James. TMZ reveals PHOTOS of Danielle Watts having sex with her boyfriend in broad daylight. Lolo Jones is an awkward, bad, excuse-making dancer.
Lou, Christian and Tim get into the Ray Rice appeal. It's becoming evident that he has a good chance to win it, too.
As a guest on WFAN's "Boomer and Carton" show, Reggie Bush admitted that he disciplines his 1-year-old daughter, and says that one day, he could do so "harshly" depending on what the situation is. At one point he said he would consider using a switch, but then later retracted that sentiment.
News broke early Wednesday morning that the Vikings did not want Adrian Peterson's legal situation interfering with the team. Tim, Lou and Christian also get into Arian Foster's bizarre tweets directed at Anheuser-Busch, after the beer company was critical of the NFL. Lastly, Nike pulls all Adrian Peterson merchandise from stores in the Twin Cities.

Here are the highlights from Wednesday’s Three for All on Middays with MFB with Lou Merloni, Christian Fauria and Tim Benz. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

LeBron James is playing himself in a movie called “Trainwreck” that is targeted for release next summer. The movie stars former “Saturday Night Live” actor Bill Hader and comedian Amy Schumer.

In a recent interview, Hader said that of the professional athletes he’s worked with, LeBron is one of the best at acting.

Fauria wondered where Shaquille O’Neal would rank on that list.

“I’m definitely going to see this movie,” Benz said, “Amy Schumer is one of my all-time favorites. She was hilarious when she was in town, in Mansfield.”

– The new season of “Dancing With the Stars” has begun, and two things stood out from the opening episode.

First, Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Carlton Banks on the early 1990s TV show “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” can dance.

“He’s a lock [to win],” Merloni said. “The dude looked like a professional. … He was all over the place. He was outstanding.”

Second, Olympic track star Lolo Jones was out of her element.

“She was so bad — when I’m talking about so bad, I mean, so bad it was ridiculous,” Fauria said.

Added Fauria: “So stiff. You can tell why she’s a virgin, for whatever that’s worth. She can’t deal with intimate contact. … Stiff as a board. You could tell she was uncomfortable with like just staring into her partner’s eyes, just the physical contact, she was in a skimpy little outfit that wasn’t a track outfit …”

Jones, who said, “I make no excuses, it was awful,” after her performance, was the first contestant voted off the show.

– More details have emerged about the situation actress Daniele Watts was involved in last week in Los Angeles that led to a police confrontation.

Watts became upset when a police officer approached her and her boyfriend and said he was responding to a 911 call about a lewd act being committed in public. She refused the officer’s request to provide identification and implied that she was being mistreated because she’s black.

On Wednesday, TMZ.com released witnesses’ photographs that show Watts and her boyfriend in a silver Mercedes with the door open, sitting in a sexually compromising position (Watts acknowledged to police that the couple was making out). One witness told TMZ Watts’ breasts were exposed as she straddled her boyfriend, and an employee in an office building adjoining the sidewalk where the car was parked asked the couple to stop before police were called.

“Daniele, don’t ‘F’ with TMZ,” Merloni said, “because they will get you every single time.”

Said Fauria: “If you’re going to have sex in the car, wouldn’t you go in the back seat or go around the corner, find a place where nobody’s there?”
