Here are the highlights from Thursday’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.

– Former Boston Mayor Thomas Menino announced Thursday that he will suspend his book tour, no longer seek treatment for cancer and spend more time with his family.

“Great man, we all love Mayor Menino,” Merloni said. “Really, we will forever remember Mayor Menino — and he’s still with us and we still love the man. But I’m just saying, a great man for the city.”

Added Merloni: “He asked for everyone to keep them in their thoughts and prayers. I think I speak for everybody when I say we do.”

– Benz recounted an awkward moment during CSNNE’s 6:30 program with co-hosts Gary Tanguay and Trenni Kusnierek.

“He asked Trenni if she felt like role-playing, and there was a moment of silence there where I’m not sure if Trenni interpreted it the same way that Gary was meaning to ask it,” Benz said. “Whereas I think he was asking role-playing in terms of, ‘You play [Darrelle] Revis, I’m going to play Bill] Belichick,’ Trenni I swear got a look of horror on her face there for about 20 seconds to see where Gary was going with that.

“She got it at the end and everything was smooth after that. But, Trenni, if you’re listening, I was with you for the first 10 or 15 seconds as well. I didn’t know where it was going.”

– A freshman football player at Notre Dame made gossip headlines when he was spotted on a date with 42-year-old porn star Lisa Ann at a Knicks game.

“I can’t imagine the NCAA [not] finding a way to make this be a violation somehow,” Fauria said. “Like, somehow you’re dating a porn star, this has got to be in the guidelines of what you shouldn’t do.”

Added Fauria: “You’re Notre Dame, you’re Catholic Notre Dame, Touchdown Jesus. Do your really think the priests at Notre Dame are happy about this?”

Lisa Ann wasn’t shy about publicizing the date.

Said Fauria: “Good for him. Good for him. I’m not sure how long it’s going to last …”

df Joe Maddon will not return as manager of the Rays after nine seasons in Tampa. Maddon exercised an opt-out clause in his contract and is leaving the team immediately.

“We tried diligently and aggressively to sign Joe to a third contract extension prior to his decision,” Rays owner Stuart Sternberg said in a statement after ESPN’s Buster Olney broke the story. “As of yesterday afternoon, Joe enabled himself to explore opportunities throughout Major League Baseball. He will not be managing the Rays in 2015.”

Maddon, a two-time American League Manager of the Year, compiled a 754-705 record with the Rays. He previously managed parts of two seasons with the Angels.

Earlier this month, the Rays lost a key front office piece as executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman left to become a senior adviser to Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten. Friedman had been with the Rays for 10 years.

Not everyone was pleased with golfer Ian Poulter‘€™s latest negative comments of fellow PGA members.

In the British golfer’€™s new book “No Limits,” which was released last week, Poulter criticized both Tom Watson and Nick Faldo. Watson captained the United States team during this year’€™s Ryder Cup loss to the European squad. Eight major wins and a 10-3-1 career record in Ryder Cup play wasn’t enough to keep Watson away from the criticism.

Faldo, who has won six majors during his career, also came under fire for his poor performance as Europe’€™s captain during a 2008 loss at the Ryder Cup.

PGA President of America Ted Bishop took exception to Poulter’€™s comments, and he used to social media to call out the golfer’€™s recent book.

Tweeted Bishop: Faldo’s record stands by itself. Six majors and all-time RC points. Yours vs. His? Lil Girl.

Soon after he tweeted this and posted another critical thought on Facebook, Bishop called his own actions “inappropriate,” and he then deleted the tweet.

Poutler said he was more than displeased about the comments, especially since they came from a place of authority in the golf world.

“Is being called a ‘lil girl’ meant to be derogatory or a put-down?” Poulter said in a statement to Golf Channel. “That’s pretty shocking and disappointing, especially coming from the leader of the PGA of America.”
