Rick’s Picks

Five best bets for double-start pitchers this week

1. Roy Halladay is the best pitcher in baseball and is always the best bet when he gets two starts. To make it better, he’s facing two weak offenses (at SF, vs. NYM).

2. Chris Carpenter gets two home starts (vs. ATL, vs. CIN) and should make your fantasy squad look good this week.

3. Josh Johnson has not been his best in 2010, but two home starts against weak teams (vs. SD, vs. WAS) will help him right the ship.

4. Francisco Liriano has regained his 2006 form. He gets two division foes on the road (at DET, at CLE), but should be good this week if he can stay around the plate.

5. Jered Weaver gets two struggling offenses (vs. CLE, at DET) and has been very good in 2010.
