How to set up a quick game day thread
« Topic Start: April 05, 2015, 05:40:58 PM »
Courtest of nats2playoffs:

If you want to post a Game Day Thread (GDT), you ought to, at the minimum, post the official lineups for both teams. You should be able to find daily lineups in several places:

Baseball Press numbers them and displays whether right handed or left handed:

Rotowire lists them. In 2019 they display "Confirmed Lineup" and "Expected Lineup" (an UNRELIABLE GUESS):

MLB now has a rule requiring when teams must post lineups, to try to preclude fraud in online betting. MLB is posting an UNRELIABLE GUESS in 2019 here, without telling anyone that the lineup has NOT been submitted yet:
