Tonight's Lineups

With 3 of the top 11 position players, according to FanGraphs WAR, in all of baseball taking the field tonight, this game should be an absolute blast. It's a damn shame that Evan Gattis will not be able to start tonight due to the game being in a National League ballpark, but hopefully we'll get to see Gattis in a pinch-hit role in order to see how powerful he can be at a higher altitude.
