Morning Updates

Got some updates via Twitter for you, Citizens:

Alyson Footer says that Jason Castro was sent home with a stomach flu. That must be one bad stomach bug, and is a blow to his Opening Day chances - particularly if J.R. Towles continues to rake.

McTaggart has your lineup for today's game against the Marlins:

1. Sullivan CF
2. Matsui 2B
3. Pence RF
4. Lee LF
5. Berkman 1B
6. Feliz 3B
7. Towles C
8. Maysonet SS
9. Wandy P

This is an interesting lineup, because it could be one that we see fairly regularly - with Bourn and Manzella getting the day off. I think it's the first game in which the pitcher has hit, and notice the flip of Pence and Berkman.

And, in response to a question through Twitter McTaggart speculates that Cory Sullivan is the front-runner for OF5, and it's hard to argue with that...
