No telling if they'll be able to get this one in or not, but between their umbrellas, brooms and roman candles, the patrons of GABP will have their hands full today.

If they play today, it'll be Mike Leake vs. Matt Cain, in a matchup of pitchers with opposite seasons thus far. Cain, normally one of the best pitchers in the game, is having his worst season in years, and Leake is breaking out in a big way to the point where he may be worthy of All-Star consideration.

The bullpen got used pretty extensively last night, so they could use either a long day from Leake or a long day from the rain. Go Reds! You're my favorite sweeeeep!
