The Rain In Vierra Falls Mainly On The... Umm... Tierra?

More rain for the Nats yesterday, and another game washed out. The Post and Times are all over your rain delay coverage.

That makes three rainouts in the last week or so, and it's starting to create problems for some of the hitters and pitchers. Tony Armas loses a start, which will be made up, partially, from an outing against minor leaguers. And Jose Vidro and Wil Cordero still haven't taken many hacks against live pitching.

Why can't they just do a simulated game in the batting cages with live hitters versus live pitchers? I know it wouldn't be a perfect substitute, but if they both approached it with a seriousness, there certainly could be some value in it.
