If Dusty Baker sticks to his normal lineups, this is who will be taking the field for MLB’s Players Weekend on Aug. 25-27: 

B-Good, El Lindo, Big Kid, Zim, Murph, Ant, Donnie, Wiety and a pitcher (Double G, perhaps?) 

These are the nicknames Nationals players will don on the backs of their jerseys during the inaugural MLB’s Players Weekend, which lets players choose their own names. The jerseys were revealed Wednesday on MLBShop.com. 

You can check out the rest of the jerseys here, but some of the highlights include Bryce Harper going with “Big Kid,” Gio Gonzalez going with “Double G” and Sean Doolittle going with “Doooooooo.” 

Baker’s usual starting lineup, given the team’s injuries, is Brian Goodwin, Wilmer Difo, Harper, Ryan Zimmerman, Daniel Murphy, Anthony Rendon, Adam Lind, Matt Wieters and a pitcher. 

The jerseys aren’t cheap — each costing $199.99. 

MLB Players Weekend was first announced in June.
