ST. Cheap Nike Air Max 1 . 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. Air Max 1 Clearance .J. -- Omar Cummings helped the Houston Dynamo advance to the MLS Eastern Conference finals. Air Max 1 Sale Cheap . Kansas City became the first team in baseball history to win four extra-inning games in a single postseason on Friday, as Alex Gordon crushed a leadoff homer in the 10th and Mike Moustakas added the deciding two-run blast in the Royals 8-6 win. http://www.wholesaleairmax1.com/ . -- When the Los Angeles Kings are on top of their formidable defensive game, they revel in the silence they can create in a frustrated road arena.FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - The New York Jets head into the NFL draft with several needs and plenty of picks. General manager John Idzik also has loads of options with the No. 18 selection. Wide receiver? Cornerback? Tight end? Trade up, or down? Well, its anyones guess — the Jets included — right now. But with the depth of this years rookie class and currently holding a whopping 12 selections, New York will likely be able to add a few impact players. "Well go in open-minded," Idzik said. "The nice thing about having 12 picks is it does give you flexibility and manoeuvrability within the draft." Since taking over as GM last year, Idzik has preached a philosophy of building through the draft. And the 12 picks are just one less than the 13 the Jets had in coach Rex Ryans first three years from 2009-11 combined. Idzik took a deliberate but frugal approach to free agency, still landing perhaps the top three players available at their positions in quarterback Michael Vick, running back Chris Johnson and wide receiver Eric Decker. Despite not being the active spenders many fans hoped the Jets would be, that perception wont affect the Jets draft-day approach. "We view the draft, again, as a talent-based operation," Idzik said. "Were just going to go after the best players for our organization, so I dont know that theres any more pressure based on what transpired or what may not have transpired in free agency." Here are five things to know about the Jets heading into the draft: PLETHORA OF PICKS: Having loads of draft selections doesnt always translate into long-term success. With 12 picks, four of which are compensatory, the Jets have their most since having 10 in 2006. They also had 10 picks in 2004, but havent had as many as 12 since 1998, when their first selection came in the second round with defensive end Dorian Boose. Of those 12 players, only fourth-round tackle Jason Fabini became a regular starter for the Jets. Only one player other than Fabini, third-round safety Kevin Williams, started more than one game in New York. Oh, and five of those selections never played for the Jets in a regular-season game. STAYING PUT?: Despite all those picks, theres certainly a chance the Jets wont keep them all. Air Max 1 Wholesale. They might not even stay in the 18th spot, if the right opportunity to trade up — maybe to get a Sammy Watkins or Mike Evans — comes along. That spot in the draft has produced some decent talent in recent years, including Chad Pennington (2000), Calvin Pace (2003), Joe Flacco (2008) and Maurkice Pouncey (2010), but generally very few Pro Bowl-type players have come at No. 18. "We feel if we stay at 18 that well have the ability to select a good player, somebody that can come in and help us win," senior personnel executive Terry Bradway said. TARGETING NEW TARGETS: Whether its Geno Smith or Michael Vick under centre this season, the Jets addressed the wide receiver position in free agency by bringing in Decker, who immediately upgrades the group after two huge years catching passes from Peyton Manning in Denver. But theres still room to improve. While Watkins and Evans are expected to be long gone by No. 18, the Jets might have a tough decision between LSUs Odell Beckham Jr., Oregon States Brandin Cooks, Southern Californias Marqise Lee or Florida States Kelvin Benjamin. ANOTHER CORNER?: Yes, the Jets took a cornerback with their first-round pick last year in Dee Milliner. But it could happen again, because the Jets might need another top-notch player at the position. After releasing Antonio Cromartie, Milliner became the de facto No. 1 cornerback. The current options to start opposite him are free agent signee Dimitri Patterson, and Kyle Wilson, the teams top pick in 2010, who might be better suited as nickel backs. It wouldnt be a shocker if the Jets jumped on Michigan States Darqueze Dennard, TCUs Jason Verrett, or Virginia Techs Kyle Fuller at No. 18. TIGHT SPOT: The Jets re-signed Jeff Cumberland in the off-season, and Ryan has raved about how he is developing into an all-around tight end. But Zach Sudfeld, Chris Pantale and Konrad Reuland, coming off a knee injury, are the only other tight ends on the roster. So, if North Carolinas Eric Ebron is available, the Jets could opt for perhaps the top-rated tight end in the draft. If not, Texas Techs Jace Amaro or Washingtons Austin Seferian-Jenkins could be possibilities in the second round. ' ' '
