Anquan Boldin and the 49ers are closing in on deal to keep Boldin in San Francisco, per sources.
While the return of Michael Crabtree signified Boldin's end as the team's No. 1 receiver, the 49ers would be wise to keep him and have him complete the 1-2 punch they've long-needed at the position. Last season, Boldin, despite being blanketed by double-coverage for the majority of the season led the team with 85 catches for 1,179 yards and seven touchdowns.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
