Hanley won't start: Hanley Ramirez, bothered by a fractured rib since Game 1, will not start at shortstop for the Dodgers in tonight's Game 6 of the NLCS. Nick Punto will take his place and bat eighth. Don Mattingly hopes Ramirez can pinch hit but says Ramirez "doesn't feel like he can swing the bat right now."

Update: Yeah, well, Mattingly changed his mind. Ramirez is in the lineup and batting cleanup.
