MESA, Ariz. - It wasn't quite a stump speech for a David Freese Gold Glove Award campaign, but it was a ringing endorsement in the eyes of the Angels' new third baseman. Angels Manager Mike Scioscia stopped short of saying he would pull Freese for defensive purposes, at least to start the season. “We're not there yet,” Scioscia said. “We'll see where we are next week, but David is going to play third base for us, and we anticipate him playing it well.” Freese, acquired from St. Louis for Peter Bourjos in November, appreciates the support.

There was no great gnashing of teeth by the Mighty Duck players after they lost to St. Louis, 4-2, in a well-played game Sunday at The Pond of Anaheim. "What can I do?" said Duck Coach Ron Wilson. "When the effort's there and the other team's better, I can't be upset. We don't have Brett Hull, Brendan Shanahan, Al MacInnis and a lot of other near all-stars." In fact, the Ducks don't have a player who has ever been in an NHL all-star game.

It might be difficult for NHL general managers to surpass the magnitude of Tuesday's trade-deadline-eve moves as the clock moves toward Wednesday's noon PST deadline, but plenty of discussions are believed to be going on and at least one significant deal has been made. The New York Rangers, unable to come to terms with team captain Ryan Callahan as he nears the end of his contract, traded him plus a 2015 first-round draft pick and a conditional 2014 second-round pick to the Tampa Bay Lightning for defending NHL scoring champion Martin St. Louis.

There are two new teams in the NHL this season (Minnesota and Columbus), two European coaches for the first time (Ivan Hlinka in Pittsburgh and Alpo Suhonen in Chicago) and a new crackdown by referees in an attempt to further open up play (minor slashing infractions are going the way of handchecking in the NBA). A future Hall of Fame goaltender (Colorado's Patrick Roy) is poised to break the league's all-time record for victories.

Jeff Suppan threw seven scoreless innings in his favorite stadium, and Corey Hart hit his first homer in 27 games to lift the Milwaukee Brewers to a 1-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday. Suppan, the 2006 NL Championship Series most valuable player for the Cardinals, outdueled Adam Wainwright in the first of 18 matchups between teams who entered the day tied for the NL Central lead. Suppan (3-3) is 131-126 in his career but 9-2 with a 3.02 earned-run average in 20 starts in St.

VS. ST. LOUIS Time: Noon. On the air: None. Where: Home Depot Center. Records: Sol 11-1-4; Athletica 6-5-2. Record vs. Athletica: 2-0-1. Update: With a victory over St. Louis, the Sol can clinch first place in Women's Professional Soccer and thereby advance directly to the league's Aug. 22 championship match at the Home Depot Center. Sol Coach Abner Rogers will have to shuffle his defense after Christie Shaner suffered a broken right leg in a collision with U.S.

Former Socker Waad Hirmez said Wednesday he has agreed to a contract with the St. Louis Storm and will fly to St. Louis to sign it Friday. His first game in a Storm uniform will be Saturday against the Baltimore Blast, which cut Hirmez two weeks ago after the player and Coach Kenny Cooper took a squabble to Baltimore newspapers. Hirmez, who led the Sockers with 43 goals last season, said he will make the same money in St. Louis that he was getting in Baltimore, but would not elaborate.

Disheartening? Yes. Alarming? No. So the Dodgers summed up their dreary start after the All-Star game, in which they lost four consecutive games to the Cardinals in St. Louis. "I don't think guys are really down at all," third baseman Casey Blake said Monday after the team returned to Dodger Stadium to play the San Francisco Giants and open a seven-game homestand. "We know there are a lot of games left to play." Rafael Furcal , the Dodgers' All-Star shortstop, said rebounding from the sweep was similar to emerging from a hitting slump.

Kentucky vs. Valparaiso--The Wildcats make their record 43rd NCAA tournament appearance. Valparaiso is making its sixth. Kentucky has stumbled down the stretch, winning only five of its last nine games. The Wildcats have been plagued by off-the-court troubles all season; five players have missed 11 games because of team suspensions and Marvin Stone was dismissed when he failed to return to the team after a Christmas break. In 1998, Valparaiso's Sweet 16 run ended in St. Louis.

The Angels hope for great things from David Freese, their new third baseman. What they cannot hope for are the best days of Freese's baseball life. He already had them. In 2011, he saved the St. Louis Cardinals from extinction in Game 6 of the World Series, tying the score in the ninth inning with a two-out, two-run triple, then winning the game with an 11th-inning home run. In Game 7, he tied the score with a two-run double, and the Cardinals never again trailed. St. Louis threw a parade for its Cardinals, but the outpouring of elation was most heartfelt toward Freese.

Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller wasn't one of the five on his team who won an Olympic medal in Russia. Friday night, Hiller and his defense-minded teammates had to settle for something else in their return from the Olympic break: a shutout victory over the St. Louis Blues, 1-0, at Honda Center. In addition to Hiller's 18 saves, the Ducks (42-14-5) blocked 27 shots and out-hit the Blues, 35-25, to conclude a three-game season sweep. SUMMARY: Ducks 1, St. Louis Blues 0 “That was some big men hitting each other, and I thought it was [like]

SOCHI, Russia - Canada's Olympic hockey selection committee snubbed speedy Tampa Bay Lightning forward Martin St. Louis when it submitted its Sochi roster a month ago. The committee didn't make that mistake again Thursday, when it had to find a replacement for injured Lightning center Steven Stamkos. St. Louis, the NHL's scoring champion last season, took the open spot hours after the Lightning said tests had showed that Stamkos had not fully healed from surgery he underwent in November to insert a rod in his broken leg. St. Louis' speed should be an asset to Team Canada on the Olympic-sized rink, which is 15 feet wider than NHL ice surfaces.

For the last 19 years, for many Southland football fans, Super Bowl Sunday has also been Super Strange Sunday. It is the one day of the year, maybe the only day of the year, when it feels truly odd and isolating that Los Angeles does not have an NFL team. It can be disenchanting to watch America's biggest sporting event while realizing that America's second-largest city, your city, doesn't have a chance to be in that game. None of the Denver Broncos or Seattle Seahawks ever played for your pro team, or played against your pro team, or even played a pro game in your city.

  NEW YORK - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Friday that just because Stan Kroenke, owner of the St. Louis Rams, recently purchased 60 acres adjacent to Hollywood Park, it doesn't mean Kroenke plans to relocate the Rams to the Los Angeles area. "Stan is a very large developer on a global basis; he has land throughout the country and throughout the world," Goodell said at his annual pre-Super Bowl news conference. "He has kept us informed of it. We're aware of it. There are no plans, to my knowledge, of a stadium development.

You won't meet "Meet Me in St. Louis" in Los Angeles. The Broadway show, which was scheduled to begin its national tour here as part of the Los Angeles Civic Light Opera season, is now opening--more appropriately, perhaps--in St. Louis on April 30, with Debby Boone in the Judy Garland role and Paul Blake of Beverly Hills directing and producing. It has been revamped since the New York staging, with new choreography by Donald Saddler.

The owner of the St. Louis Rams has bought a large piece of land in Inglewood that potentially could be used for an NFL stadium, multiple individuals with knowledge of the transaction have told The Times. Within the last month, billionaire Stan Kroenke bought a 60-acre parking lot located between the Forum and Hollywood Park, according to individuals who spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak on behalf of the buyer or seller. Wal-Mart originally owned the land but sold it after failing to get public approval for a superstore.
