CINCINNATI — Channeling his inner meteorologist, Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo trolled the Cincinnati Reds with a weather-related tweet on Thursday. With heavy rainfall expected to last through the night in Cincinnati, Rizzo tweeted at the Reds' official Twitter account about when they expected to be able to play Thursday's game.

Originally scheduled to start at 6:10 p.m. local time at Great American Ball Park, the contest had been delayed but not officially postponed at the time of Rizzo's tweet. Rizzo included a weather map in his tweet, which showcased the rainy conditions that were expected to continue for quite some time, and hilariously suggested that the Reds search for "a window" in which the game could be played at Home Depot.

Update: Rizzo later composed another tweet calling out MLB for essentially delaying the inevitable by refusing to postpone the game, thus having the players hang around in the clubhouse for an extended period of time when they should be socially distancing.
