BTW, it oughta be "struck" not "stricken". "Cupcake was stricken with space herpes" vs. "Cupcake was struck from the duty roster."
Although both dictionaries I consulted indicate no preference, I completely agree with you on this. Good call.
They're not interchangeable in this context. One is an adjective (stricken) the other is a verb [trans] (struck). Try to swap another adjective and you see it don't work:
