Tonight could be A.J. Burnett's last start. Not just of his miserable 2014 season, but perhaps ever. EVER. If he wants to give up his multi-million dollar contract option for 2015, that is. Soooo... who knows.

Here's tonight's lineup, which contains more than A.J. Burnett.

Today's Lineups

ATLANTA BRAVES PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
Emilio Bonifacio - 2B Ben Revere - CF
Andrelton Simmons - SS Cody Asche - 3B
Freddie Freeman - 1B Chase Utley - 2B
Justin Upton - LF Ryan Howard - 1B
Jason Heyward - RF Marlon Byrd - RF
Christian Bethancourt - C Domonic Brown - LF
Chris Johnson - 3B Wil Nieves - C
B.J. Upton - CF Andres Blanco - SS
Aaron Harang - RHP A.J. Burnett - RHP

I know it's better in the long run if the Phillies lose tonight, but it's the Braves. So I want the Phillies to beat the crap out of them.
