ST. LOUIS - John Lackey stepped to the podium, minus the obvious status symbols: his two World Series rings. No reason to brag.No, I dont wear them very much, he said Sunday. Maybe to a wedding or stuff like that. Theyre a little big and a little flashy, not exactly my style.The St. Louis Cardinals acquired Lackey from World Series champion Boston at the trade deadline for occasions just like this, knowing NL Division Series game 3 against the Los Angeles Dodgers wont be too big for the 35-year-old right-hander. Lackey won a game in each series last fall, including the Game 6 clincher over St. Louis.Yeah, definitely take pride in that, Lackey said. I want to pitch well this time of year, but things Ive done in the past arent going to help me tomorrow. Lackey (14-10) starts after the Cardinals split in California against Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke. Los Angele left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu (14-7), recovered from shoulder irritation, makes his first start since Sept. 12.Through an interpreter, Ryu thought it an almost zero per cent chance that the shoulder would be a factor.Its an honour for them to trust me with this tomorrow, Ryu said. I dont want to let them down.Ryu pitched seven scoreless innings last year to beat the Cardinals in Game 3 of the NL Championship Series.Manager Don Mattingly described the pitcher as pretty unflappable.He seems to be that guy that nothing really bothers him, Mattingly said. Im sure hes a little, like everyone else, excited and anxious and all those things.Los Angeles was 0-3 at Busch Stadium in last years playoffs, shut out twice. The Dodgers scored two runs and totalled 16 hits in 31 innings with no homers.Five-game series, things can go anybodys way, closer Kenley Jansen said after striking out two during a perfect ninth inning that completed the Dodgers 3-2 win that evened the series. Got to go there and steal one.The Cardinals did not work out after taking an overnight flight that touched down in St. Louis about 6 a.m. A tarpaulin covered the infield later Sunday when about a dozen Dodgers players, including Clayton Kershaw, played catch and ran sprints in left field under the lights.Shelby Miller (10-9) makes his first career post-season start in Game 4 on Tuesday. Dan Haren (13-11) is the probable for the Dodgers, but Haren will also prepare as if hes starting Game 3 in case hes needed in long relief.Yeah, we have flexibility, Mattingly said. We dont know whats going to happen tomorrow for us. Anything could happen with Hyun-Jin.The Dodgers could turn to Kershaw on short rest in Game 4 if they are facing elimination. Kershaw is favoured to win his third Cy Young Award in four years after going 21-3 with a 1.77 ERA, but he has a 1-4 record and a 5.20 ERA in the post-season and twice straight has been pummeled by the Cardinals.Ryu threw 43 pitches in a three-inning simulated game on Wednesday at Dodger Stadium. He lasted just one inning in his last start of the season, but Mattingly pointed out hes also thrown two bullpen sessions.Its not like were just throwing him out there, the manager said.Still, stamina could be a factor, and the Dodgers have had middle-relief issues. Rookie Pedro Baez allowed Matt Hollidays three-run homer that put the Cardinals ahead 10-6 in the opener, and J.P. Howell gave up Matt Carpenters tying two-run homer in the seventh inning in Game 2.Unlike the Cardinals, who have All-Star setup man Pat Neshek ahead of Trevor Rosenthal, the Dodgers have had to mix and match.You just cant worry about that, Jansen said. What happened yesterday happened. That doesnt happen very often.After a mid-September break to recharge from a dead arm, Lackey allowed three earned runs in 14 1-3 innings his last two outings. Hell be making his first appearance since Sept. 24.Cardinals manager Mike Matheny wasnt surprised Lackey didnt take it well when he got skipped in September.Yeah, Ive had some interesting looks and conversations, Matheny said. Yeah, every time I go to take him out, I know its going to be something. Hes done a nice job of walking that fine line of making it known hed like to stay in the game, but also not crossing that line.Lackey needs 3 2-3 innings to overtake CC Sabathia (107 2-3) as the active leader in post-season innings.Im going to cut it loose. Whatever is in there is going to be in there, Lackey said. Yeah, this isnt the regular season. Were not saving anything. Peyton Manning Jersey . Although the deal cannot be made official until the free agent moratorium period is lifted on July 10, Patterson has agreed to a three-year, $18 million extension to remain in Toronto, sources confirm to TSN. Anthony Castonzo Jersey . A person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press the Steelers will part ways with the former Pro Bowler, a move that hardly serves as a surprise after fifth-year linebacker Jason Worilds agreed to accept a "transition player" tag last week. http://www.nflcoltsgearsshop.com/Darryl-Morris.html?cat=903.ca contributor Grant McCagg provides a look at some risers and fallers on the prospect watch. Reggie Wayne Jersey . -- James Harden scored 31 points, including 25 in the second half, and the Houston Rockets dug out of a double-digit, first-half hole to beat the Orlando Magic 101-89 on Wednesday night. Adam Vinatieri Jersey . -- So much for concern that running back Marshawn Lynch would be absent from the Seattle Seahawks minicamp.Having recently snapped a five-game losing streak, the Vancouver Canucks dont have much time to play into the revenge game versus the Los Angeles Kings. Instead, the Canucks will just be trying to string together back-to-back wins when they visit the Kings on Monday night and are expected to have Alexander Edler back in their line-up for the first time since suffering a knee injury on Dec. 3. To make room for Edler, the team optioned Frank Corrado back to the Utica Comets of the AHL. In six games with the Canucks this season, the 20-year-old defenceman is pointless. These two Pacific Division clubs clashed in Los Angeles on Jan. 4, with the Kings beating the Canucks for the third time in as many meetings this season. The 3-1 decision gave Los Angeles a victory in six of the last nine encounters and in seven of the previous nine played in L.A. Roberto Luongo made 46 saves for the Canucks and played the entire game despite getting crashed into by the Kings Dustin Brown. Luongo, though, has not played since due to an ankle injury suffered on the play. While the Canucks were understandably not happy with Browns tactics, coach John Tortorella wants his club to remain focused ahead of tonights rematch. "We need to play our game," Tortorella told Vancouvers website. "L.A. plays in the blue, thats part of hockey. We need to play in the blue. We need to protect our blue." Though Luongo was able to take partt in practice on Sunday, he is not expected to play tonight.dddddddddddd That means Eddie Lack will get the call and he has started eight of Vancouvers last nine games while Luongo has dealt with two different injuries. Lack made 30 saves in Fridays 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues, while Mike Santorelli and Zac Dalpe scored goals to help snap the Canucks losing streak. "Lack was really good tonight. He made key saves. Its a big win for us," said Tortorella. The Kings began a five-game homestand with the win over the Canucks and have gone 2-1-1 on the stay. That regulation loss came on Saturday, a 3-1 setback to the Detroit Red Wings. Drew Doughty scored the lone goal for the Kings in the first period, while Jonathan Quick turned aside 23-of-26 shots. "I think starting the second period we had several opportunities where we didnt shoot the puck," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "Those are really 1-1 games so leaving it until the third there is a chance you are not going to get a reward for a great effort." Los Angeles sent 45 shots on net, including a team-high eight by Mike Richards. He had an assist, but saw his stretch of consecutive games without a goal reach 21. Quick made 27 saves in the Jan. 4 win over the Canucks, while Jeff Carter scored twice. Brown also scored. Quick is 8-10-1 with a 1.93 goals against average in his career versus Vancouver.
