02:47 PM ET 10.14 | Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez might not be in the lineup again for Game 3 of their series against the St. Louis Cardinals. With Adam Wainwright on the hill for St. Louis, this news spells further offensive trouble for the Dodgers. Through two games and 22 innings of play in the NLCS, Los Angeles has scored only two runs - including a 1-0 defeat in Game 2 that saw Cardinals starter Michael Wacha go 6.2 innings and give up only five hits. Ramirez injured his ribs in Game 1 after being hit by Cardinals starter Joe Kelly, which kept him out of the lineup in a game-time decision by manager Don Mattingly. According to a report from the Associated Press, you can expect another last minute decision for Game 3, and perhaps the rest of the series. According to Ramirez, it's all about pain management.

Good win by the Dodgers, but they'll need every help they can get to beat the Cardinals.

As long as Hanley is ready for the next WBC, he'll be happy.

If the Cardinals don't start hitting, they aren't going to beat anyone.

The offense has been absent for way too long. You can't win without scoring runs.
