LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Perhaps the trade rumors will resurface in spring training or at the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline. But for now, the Dodgers' plan is to hold on to Matt Kemp. That's what Kemp's agent said he was told by General Manager Ned Colletti at baseball's winter meetings on Wednesday. "He said that they're not going to move him," said Dave Stewart, the former All-Star pitcher who represents Kemp. Before the winter meetings, Stewart told The Times he would be surprised if his client wasn't traded this winter because of the unusual amount of media speculation about Kemp's future.

" So, come Monday at Dodger Stadium in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, Hyun-Jin Ryu will be asked to replicate the performances of Cardinals starters Joe Kelly and Michael Wacha in the first two games of the series.

On a recent summer day at the Paramount lot, the five members of the group SuperHeavy played along to a recording of their first single, "Miracle Worker," as a camera crane swooped over an assembled crowd of a few hundred and the music boomed. Onstage in the middle of the lot's faux urban streetscape, Mick Jagger lipped the words and moved like himself while the big crowd bounced along to an upbeat, dance hall-inspired pop song. Budgets being what they are, it's not often that a music video in 2011 features a few hundred extras.
