Hey guys, I tore down my motor and didn't end up being able to put back together due to some b.s. and it got rained in. I pulled the coolant line at the bottom and drained it all out. Going to pull the motor, was looking for advice on whether I should junk it and find a new one. Or if there is any way I can save my baby.

You can fix anything, the question is how much will it cost relative to the value of the machine and whether you are committed to fixing "your baby". Agree that the crankshaft is going to need some work, but there are businesses that fix those every day. Get the engine out and disassembled so the crankshaft can be inspected. The other option is just to "assume" the bearings and/or connecting rods are bad and have it rebuilt or do an exchange for one already rebuilt. Were your cylinders and pistons also "wet"?
