There you see Ronald Acuña Jr. and Josh Donaldson celebrating a home run. You might see it again tonight since they’re both still in the lineup, along with the six other regulars.

Alright, the lineups are finally out for the public to view, so let’s get into talking about it. We’ll talk about New York’s lineup first since there’s actually something new when it comes to that.

So, here’s the lineup for the Mets:

Only four players who are in tonight’s lineup for the Mets were in the lineup for their game against the Cardinals on Sunday: Pete Alonso, Robinson Cano, Michael Conforto, and Juan Lagares. Additionally, they’re all in different spots tonight compared to where they were yesterday. It’s not like they’re switching things up for a different-handed pitcher — both Dakota Hudson and Mike Soroka are right-handers, so I’m guessing that Mickey Callaway just wanted to switch things up for tonight’s game.

Meanwhile, here’s the lineup for the Braves:

At this rate, the Braves are probably just going to announce that either Brian McCann or Tyler Flowers is catching and then also announce whoever the pitcher is for the day and leave it at that, since everything else has remained unchanged.
