Christian started the day by packing up his back pack as he always and heading to work. He noticed that the zipper was broken on one of the pockets. As the show was ending, he remembered this and reached into the bag and pulled out not ONE, but TWO New England Patriots Super Bowl rings. His response: "Oh! There they are." Much to the shock of Tim and Lou, Christian was completely unfazed by the fact that he hadn't seen his SB rings since the NCAA National Championship game 7 MONTHS AGO!

A South Carolina mother was arrested for allegedly leaving her 9 year old daughter alone for hours at a local park while she worked a shift at McDonalds. This has sparked a national debate about whether or not the mother should have been arrested, since many are arguing that 9 years old is old enough to show dependency. The question arises: Where do we draw the line?

Chase Headley

Chase Headley

The Yankees on Tuesday made a move to boost their infield, acquiring third baseman Chase Headley from the Padres for infielder Yangervis Solarte and minor league pitcher Rafael De Paula.

The Yankees receive $1 million from the Padres along with Headley, who becomes a free agent in the offseason. He signed a one-year, $10.5 million contract in January.

Headley, 30, is in his eighth major league season, all spent with San Diego. He is hitting .229/.296/.355 with seven home runs and 32 RBIs in 77 games this year.

Two years ago he had his best season, batting .286/.376/.498 with 31 home runs and a National League-best 115 RBIs. He finished fifth in the MVP voting and won a Silver Slugger as well as a Gold Glove. He was unable to replicate that performance in 2013, hitting .250/.347/.400 with 13 homers and 50 RBIs.

Solarte, 27, started the season strong, hitting .336 as of May 14, but he has batted .180 since then and spent a week in Triple-A this month. DePaula, 23, is 6-5 with a 4.15 ERA at Single-A Tampa.

In Tuesday’€™€™s Three For All on Middays with MFB, Tim BenzLou Merloni and Christian Fauria discussed a story about a woman being arrested for leaving her 9-year-old daughter alone at a park, and they debated when a child is old enough to be left to play outside alone. To listen to the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

Debra Harrell of North Augusta, South Carolina, was arrested and charged with unlawful conduct toward a child for allegedly leaving her 9-year-old daughter at a park for hours while she worked at a nearby McDonald’s restaurant.

“So she let her daughter go to the park by herself, a six-minute walk to their house. She has a key, she has a cell phone, and apparently the cops arrested her,” Merloni said. “She could face 10 years for this.”

Said Fauria: “If you’re doing your job as a cop you at least say, ‘Where’s your mom at?’ And you grab the kid if you think the situation is dangerous, bring it to work and say, ‘Listen, either you get off work right now and take control of your child, or I’m going to arrest you.’ You don’t arrest the mother.

“That’s asinine. That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. You don’t tell me how to take care of my kid and what is safe for her. If you see a scary situation that isn’t safe for that girl or boy, it doesn’t matter. Just grab the kid, put them in the car and take them to where they were.”

The story inspired a discussion amongst the guys about how old a child should be to be allowed to go outside alone, and when it’s OK to be without parental supervision.

“Obviously there’s a lot of factors in there,” Merloni said. “My neighbor has two kids, 12 and 10. My son is 4 1/2, 5. Obviously I would never do that right now. But I’m looking at the neighbors I see a 12- and a 10-year-old. I’m looking at the 10-year-old, he’s out there playing in the yard by himself, and I’m thinking, would I be comfortable letting him go to the park and shoot hoops there instead of in the backyard?”

Said Fauria: “If my kids want to roll out to the parks and shoot hoops, I’ll see you when I see you. Together, yes. Or even if they were with their friends I would let them go to the park.

“My daughter who’s 10, I don’t really feel comfortable about it even if I have a cell phone.”

Benz added: “Where I grew up in Guilford, Connecticut, no big deal as a 9-year-old by yourself. But going down to New Haven?”

Thomas Vanek

Thomas Vanek

Federal authorities called Wild forward Thomas Vanek to Rochester, New York, on Monday for his connection to an ongoing gambling investigation, according to local news station News10NBC.

News10NBC reported that Vanek is not charged with any crime and arrived to the federal court building voluntarily with his lawyer for his connection to a federal case in which three men at local restaurant Marina Restaurant and Bar are facing 23 counts of illegal gambling.

According to agent Steve Bartlett, Vanek was asked to come in as a witness. Bartlett said Vanek is not a target and is not under suspicion for doing anything wrong.

A native of Austria, Vanek played for the Sabres from 2005-06 until he was traded to the Islanders last October. He was shipped to the Canadiens in March and signed a reported three-year, $19.5 million deal with the Wild in the offseason.

The Sox exploded for 14 runs against Toronto and got home runs from Stephen Drew, Mike Napoli, and 2 from David Ortiz. 7.5 games out of first place seems too big of a mountain to climb, but the Boston Herald's John Tomase reminds fans that the division is terrible, and will likely be won by a team with less than 90 wins.

Maverick Carter, LeBron James‘ business parter, told ESPN.com’s Jason Whitlock in a podcast that neither he or anyone else in James’ inner circle told the superstar to return to the Cavaliers.

“This was a decision that LeBron made in his heart,” Carter told Whitlock. “We didn’t push him to do it. We don’t push him to do anything. If he asks our opinion or what did we think about the pros and the cons, we help him think through it. We don’t push him.”

Said Carter: “LeBron’s a 29-year-old man with lots of money, got a wife, two kids, one on the way. He makes his own decisions. He doesn’t need anyone pushing him any way, and a guy like that, you’re not going to push him either way. We’ll help him think through things and help him see through things, but he makes his own decision in his heart. Because, ultimately, he has to live with it. I’m not the one who has to show up and play games for any team.”

James announced his return to the Cavs on July 11 after four seasons with the Heat. He opted out of his contract with Miami shortly after the loss to the Spurs in the NBA Finals. Carter said he wasn’t sure if James would have returned to the Heat if they had won their third straight title.

“Logic says how could he not,” Carter said. “You’ve got to go for four. But who knows. The decision about Cleveland was bigger than basketball. It was in his heart.”

Carter said James informed Dwyane Wade of his decision before the Sports Illustrated piece was released.
