- Felix's Gem: Last Wednesday Seattle's Felix Hernandez tossed the third perfect game of the season in a brilliant 12 strikeout performance against Tampa Bay. Just how good is this guy, and is there a way that the Mariners can keep him long-term? We'll tell you.

- Hot Water For Melky: Major League Baseball suspended San Francisco's Melky Cabrera 50-games last week for testing positive for elevated levels of testosterone. What does the suspension mean for the Giants postseason aspirations, and what kind of overall damage does it do to Cabrera's career moving forward? Our answers may surprise you.

- Locker Gets the Nod: The Titans have decided to go with second-year player Jake Locker as their starting quarterback. Did Tennessee make the right decision, or should veteran Matt Hasselbeck still be the man under center? Hear our take.


We break down Miami's decision to go with rookie Ryan Tannehill at QB, and how the one-on-one exhibition match between Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy could play out!

All this and more in this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast!
