He's been listed in the lineup both Monday and Tuesday but was removed at the last minute. I'll believe it when I see him on the field. !+)

Point taken. But I also just read an interview where he said he finally feels better and the symptoms stopped at some point yesterday. He said he was in the bathroom every 10 minutes and lost 5-10 lbs...so don't expect a 3 hr day. :-b

Sure, why not? :-?

He may be a little weak, but it's not unheard of. You've never been sick, lost 5 lbs, and then resumed your normal life?

Game has already been postponed per yahoo and mlb.com. That's probably the only reason they put him in the lineup, they knew it was going to get postponed.

Yeah, their entire plan was to trick fantasy owners to start him. It didn't start raining until after the released the lineup so they can also control the weather.
