MLB: Washington Nationals at Baltimore Orioles Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Okay, so it rained a little. Good thing it won’t rain today.

Wait, what do you mean, “SCATTERED SHOWERS”?

Here are today’s waterlogged links.

Matt Wieters, an Oriole when the rivalry was just beginning, helping out new side of Beltway Battle
Wieters was a four-time All-Star in Baltimore, and a pretty smart dude overall.

Inside Jayson Werth's 11-pitch at-bat that led to a homer
Jayson Werth fouled off pitch after pitch after pitch until he got one he really, really liked, and teed off on it to start the Nats' comeback.

Glover ready to return, Adam Eaton returns to the clubhouse
Eaton plans to rehab in D.C. to spend as much time around his teammates as he possibly can. Meanwhile, Koda Glover will likely be activated today.

Nats need Taylor to contribute offensively
Losing Adam Eaton sucks. It'll suck less if Michael A. Taylor can heat up, even if it's just a little.

Wait, the Nationals' biggest problem isn't the bullpen?
Center field is what we're panicking about now? Okay, sounds good.

Wieters helps new team beat old team
Something something poetic justice something something
