Cubs-Pirates: Chicago Goes for the Sweep Against Matt Morris
Cubs take on Pittsburgh for what I can only hope will be a nine inning game. The first two games covered 27 innings and a lot of, shall we say, interesting baseball. Up two to none, the Cubs go for the sweep against Matt Morris.

He throws fastball, slider and curve, plus the occasional change. It is dead on the fastball, movement-wise, but a few MPH slower.

Morris' curve, at 8.8 pfx_x, is the 16th biggest sweeper I have in my database. The avearge horizontal spin movement on a curveball is 5.4 in., with a handful of players in double-digits. More on those impressive curveballs later. The real impressive ones are the big 12-to-6 yakkers, like Zito's. Three Cub lefties will show-up on that list.
