Now for a look at this week in sports:

The Miami Marlins continue their quest to trade mega – star Jēun-carlo Stanton.  Stanton has given a list of teams he is both interested and not interested in.  According to sources, Stanton’s interests include the Dodgers and Giants.  Teams he has ruled out are the Red Sox and Cardinals.  Stanton has a no trade clause in contract, so he may have final say in any of the Marlins trade requests.

The latest College Football Playoff rankings were released Tuesday night and Alabama has once again reclaimed the top spot.  Clemson was placed at second, followed by Miami of Florida, and Oklahoma.  Wisconsin and Auburn are the next two out.  Alabama, Miami, Wisconsin, and Central Florida are the only remaining undefeated teams in the FBS.
