Rain, Rain, Go Away (for the Braves game)

Rain, Rain, Go Away (for the Braves game)

With rain threatening tonight's Braves game, Twitter has been buzzing with rhymes and catchprases. @cannonsimp had a great idea: let's come up with a catchphrase similar to "Spahn and Sain, and pray for rain" for today's team.  So I did:

Huddy, Maholm, Minor, and Kris,
And when they're done, our Rookie of the Year.
You don't want to face a lineup like this.
May as well pray that the skies aren't clear.
