Stanton may be headed to Yankees...Army tries for 2nd straight win over Navy...Heisman to be announced tonight
UNDATED (AP) — After vetoing deals with the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants, Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton could be heading to New York. A person familiar with the negotiations says the Yankees and Marlins have agreed to a deal, contingent on Stanton’s approval and a physical. Stanton has a no-trade clause in his record $325 million, 13-year contract. Stanton hit 59 home runs last season. If the deal goes through, he’d join Aaron Judge, who hit 52 homers for the Yankees in his rookie season.

Army is 8-3 and Navy 6-5.
NEW YORK (AP) — Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield is the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy tonight. He’d be the first senior to take home the award since Ohio State’s Troy Smith in 2006.
