Game Time: 1:05pm on

Rain, rain, go away. Cold, cold, go away. Oh well, maybe one of those two will happen. Tim Hudson will stay on regular rest when he takes the mound as scheduled today. Kyle Davies has been pushed until Wednesday, and Mark Redman"s start is pushed until Thursday. All of this irregular rest for some of our starters might begin to affect them, if it hasn't already (like Redman). The good news about the rain delay is that our bullpen gets to collectively rest for the day, and perhaps this will also cool down the Marlins' bats.
