Coming off of the high from last night, the rain might put a bit of a damper on our mood for this afternoon affair. They are predicting storms this afternoon and the National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch starting at noon.  I take that to mean the rain is pretty much guaranteed.

If they do get to play the game, then we will get our first chance to see Johnny Cueto pitch in a big league game.  It's a moment many of us have been looking forward to for some time now.  The kid has a bright future, but he's still only 22, so there are likely to be some bumps along the way.  Hopefully he'll just manage to stay steady today.  He doesn't need to dominate, just keep the team in the game and get the first one under his belt.

Keep your fingers crossed that the weather will give enough of a break for them to play.  The good news is that this is the only trip the Dbacks make to Cincinnati, so both teams are going to be motivated to get the game in.
