ST. LOUIS - The plan worked to perfection, through the first round of the playoffs. Then the plan was fractured. The eighth rib of Hanley Ramirez was fractured. So, too, was the Dodgers' season. As it turned out, the National League Championship Series did not turn on the fortunes of Yasiel Puig, Clayton Kershaw or Mickey Mouse. The series turned on the ninth pitch of the first game, the fastball that broke a rib. That was the last the Dodgers saw of Ramirez as an effective player this season.

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals are about to get their cleanup batter back, just in time for the World Series. Allen Craig, who has not played since Sept. 4 because of a foot injury, took batting practice Sunday and said he expects to be on the Cardinals' World Series roster. Craig would serve as the designated hitter when the Series opens in Boston on Wednesday and Thursday. Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright will start Game 1 against the Red Sox. Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny declined to announce his rotation beyond then, but Michael Wacha, Joe Kelly and Lance Lynn are expected to follow Wainwright.

Free-agent linebacker Joe Kelly agreed to a one-year $500,000 contract with the Rams on Wednesday, his agent, Steve Feldman, said. Kelly, cut by the Raiders three weeks ago despite being the starting middle linebacker, chose the Rams' offer over one from the Washington Redskins. "The decision came down to Joe's relationship with (Ram linebacker coach) Dick Selcer," Feldman said. "Dick was the linebackers coach at Cincinnati when Joe was drafted there."

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Joe Kelly took time after the game to explain his standoff with Dodgers reserve Scott Van Slyke that got Game 6 of the National League Championship Series off to a weird and slightly belated start. Kelly, it seems, made a habit of being the last player standing at attention after the national anthem. “Apparently, they caught on to it, and he didn't leave. So we stood there for a while,” Kelly said of Van Slyke. “It was fun.” Kelly actually moved around some, while Van Slyke stood frozen.

The Raiders agreed in principle Tuesday to a new contract with their fullback, Steve Smith, an unrestricted free agent, and have signed unrestricted free agent linebacker Joe Kelly, formerly of the New York Jets. Both Gaston Green and Coach Wade Phillips of the Denver Broncos said it was their understanding that a trade has been completed to send the Bronco running back to the Raiders for a third-round draft choice. But there was no official announcement from either the Raiders or Broncos.

The Raiders need to upgrade their linebacking this season and recently acquired Joe Kelly is being counted on to step forward. Kelly, of Los Angeles Fremont High and the University of Washington, is in his eighth season in the NFL. He signed as a free agent from the New York Jets, with whom he played outside linebacker the last three seasons. "This is a great opportunity for me at this point in my career," Kelly said.

The Rams re-signed punter Sean Landeta on Wednesday and expect to sign free-agent wide receiver Greg McMurtry in the next few days. The team retained Landeta by exercising its right of first refusal, matching an offer by the Detroit Lions. McMurtry, who played at New England last season, is expected to sign by the end of the week, said Jay Zygmunt, the team's senior vice president.

The Rams met the contract guidelines for free-agent linebacker Joe Kelly and defensive end Robert Young Monday, and could have both players signed today. Jay Zygmunt, Ram senior vice president, met Monday with Steve Feldman, agent for Young and Kelly, and made the offers for both players. The Rams offered Young, a restricted free agent, a three-year deal worth $3.5 million, nearly a $1-million-a-year raise from last season.

ST. LOUIS -- Zack Greinke was masterful Friday night, pitching the kind of October game that often turns stars into legends. He struck out a season-high 10 batters. He limited the St. Louis Cardinals to two runs and four hits over eight mostly-dominant innings. But the Dodgers lost. If the Dodgers fail to win the National League Championship Series, this 13-inning, 3-2, walk-off defeat in Game 1 will be remembered not for Greinke's performance, but the incompetence that was exhibited at Busch Stadium.

ST. LOUIS - "It was going to end at some point," Clayton Kershaw said. "Unfortunately, it had to happen tonight. " The Dodgers' ace was referring to the team's streak of 15 consecutive wins on the road, the longest in franchise history and tied for the third-longest in big league history. The St. Louis Cardinals ended the streak Tuesday night with a 5-1 victory at Busch Stadium, and Kershaw took the loss despite pitching relatively well. BOX SCORE: Cardinals 5, Dodgers 1 It was only the eighth loss in the last 40 games for the first-place Dodgers.

Former Raider and Ram veteran Joe Kelly signed Friday with Green Bay, shoring up the Packers' injury-depleted linebacking corps. Coach Mike Holmgren said Kelly, who suited up for Friday's final exhibition game, will play middle linebacker. Terms were not disclosed. Cornerback Steve Israel, claimed on waivers from the St. Louis Rams Aug. 4, was waived to make room for Kelly. Kelly, 31, became an unrestricted free agent Thursday when the Rams waived the right of first refusal in his old contract.

Dallas wide receiver Michael Irvin has called it "ridiculous." Minnesota quarterback Warren Moon says it "stinks." Former quarterback Phil Simms has several adjectives for it, most of them unprintable. It's the NFL's new $34.6-million salary cap, and it's the reason Ram linebacker Joe Kelly will spend his Sunday afternoons this fall in Anaheim Stadium instead of the Coliseum.

It might have been a non-contact drill, but Raider linebacker Joe Kelly didn't hesitate tackling Nick Bell by the neck during a recent training camp practice. The tackle upset some of Kelly's teammates on offense, but it underlined why he was signed as an unrestricted free agent this off-season by the Raiders.
