Whether you leave your bike out in the rain or ride it in or after rain, it's going to get wet. Lube/maintain your bikes mechanical parts so that they're prepared for it, get a saddle cover for when you park outside (a plastic bag works just fine for my Brooks) and that'll be it, I'd say.
Though I don't like to leave my bike outside in the rain, I know it's not going to be a big deal - all I make sure I do is (as with every lockup) remove all my lights/computer junk. And, of course, the bag over my Brooks saddle.
