Lots to report on the Twitter front

As the Astros beat writers generally don't start tweeting until mid-afternoon, there's plenty to catch up on. Such as:

Yorman Bazardo will get the start on Wednesday.

Jose Valverde is not with the team, as he has strep throat. He could rejoin the Astros in Cincinnati tomorrow.

Roy Oswalt has Veteran Pitcher's Back (VPB), and an MRI didn't reveal any structural damage. He'll pitch to tolerance, whatever that means, and will start swimming to build up said tolerance. You ever seen country dudes swim? Hilarious.
