An astute fantasy player will use all the resources he can find to his advantage. One such resource can be found at the Weather Channel’s website. This site will give you accurate weather forecasts for each MLB game so you can get as many guys into your lineup and prevent as many rain outs as possible. Because there’s nothing more annoying than losing a game or two each week by your players due to rained out games.
Now, the projected 2-starters for this week. For those of you in leagues who require you to set your lineup at the beginning of the week, these are guys you should strongly consider:
|BAL||David Hernandez, Jason Berken|
|LAA||Ervin Santana, Trevor Bell|
|MIN||Francisco Liriano, Carl Pavano|
|TEX||Tommy Hunter, Scott Feldman|
|ARI||Max Scherzer, Jon Garland|
|ATL||Tommy Hanson, Derek Lowe|
|CHC||Ted Lilly, Ryan Dempster|
|LAD||Chad Billingsley, Jeff Weaver|
|NYM||Livan Hernandez, Oliver Perez|
|SD||Kevin Correia, Cesar Carillo|
|SF||Joe Martinez, Tim Lincecum|
|STL||Chris Carpenter, Mitchell Boggs|
Rick’s Picks (5 best bets for double-start pitchers this week):
1. Felix Hernandez – Dominant pitcher on the road goes against two mediocre offenses who are opposing him with struggling, young pitchers.
2. Tim Lincecum – Pitching on the road in two hitter’s parks, but is still dominant anywhere.
3. David Price – A great pitcher at home will get two starts at The Trop this week.
4. Ervin Santana – Pitches much better on the road than home and pitching on the road against two weak teams.
5. Chris Carpenter – Gets two road starts in pitcher’s parks, is looking healthy and should play big this week.
