Here are the highlights from Tuesday’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.
– Fauria recounted passing the Apple store in New York City and seeing people camping out in line to get the new iPhone 6.
“There’s some people in line who have been waiting up to 15 days for this phone,” Fauria said, adding: “Is there anything on this earth that you would in line for that long? Can you think of anything that you would say, ‘OK, listen, this is going to be so worth it’?”
Said Benz: “Maybe when Tool releases its new album, Christian, I’ll wait outside the record store for 15, 16 days.”
– Former NESN Red Sox reporter Jenny Dell will be return to New England television screens Sunday when she serves as sideline reporter for the Patriots-Vikings game on CBS.
“I thought she looked great on the sidelines in Game 1, when she did the Steelers’ game against the Browns,” Benz said. “She interviewed Ben Roethlisberger at the end of the game in some sort of red outfit, like a red dress — not too revealing, you didn’t see any plunging neckline or anything like that. We’ll see about this week. But it is a Patriots game for Jenny Dell, so look forward to that.”
Said Fauria: “You know it’s bad when we’re actually discussing the sideline reporter for a Patriots game.”
– Infielder Guilder Rodriguez was called up the major leagues this week after 13 years in the minors. The Rangers decided to reward the popular Rodriguez, who had spent more time in the minors without getting called up than any current player.
Rodriguez, 31, has a career batting average of .256. He started his professional career in 2002 in the Brewers organization.
“Good for our man over there for 13 years in the minor leagues, 1,095 games,” Merloni said. “I don’t know who the next guy is now. We’ve got to find out who the next guy is.”
