Frank Sinatra has a cold and Ryan Howard, it seems, has the flu. The Phillies lineup is unusual tonight, and my first thought was, "hmm, shaking it up, Charlie?" But he explained the changes this way: Howard had a fever of 104 last night and has "the flu or something." He went to the hospital, and can't play today. He is at the ballpark, though he declined to speak with the media. He was walking around and even told a joke, so I wouldn't worry too much. Manuel doesn't know if Howard is available to pinch hit.
