how to set up a quick GDT

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 (and they do NOT post them until they are confirmed):

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:

Fangraphs is another source of line ups.
