    He uses only fastballs and sliders. Fastball averages around 94. Many converted starters take something off their pitches to last longer, so he may be in low 90s fastball as a starter.
    To offset some of the pain of being a diehard Cubs fan, I've learned to also be a moderate Yankees fan.

    • Nothing like playing the Pirates after an ugly loss. Sort of like eating comfort food after a rough day.

            I see Scartissue already answered your question, but here's a site that is useful for finding out what pitches a guy has:

            http://baseball.bornbybits.com/plots/players.html

            I'm pretty sure I picked up that link from this board. If you're like me, you've been looking for a site that lists what types of pitches each pitcher throws. And there it is.

            • I know "on pace" is a meaningless stat in mid-April, but right now D-Lee is on pace for 60 taters.

              • I really like Marquis as our second best pitcher. He puts me at ease like Marmol.

                      • Fukudome scratched from lineup

                        CHICAGO -- Right fielder Kosuke Fukudome was a late scratch from Sunday's lineup about two hours prior to first pitch due to swelling from a cyst above his right eye. Matt Murton took Fukudome's fifth spot in the lineup against the Pirates and played left field, while Mark DeRosa moved to right.

                        Before the game, manager Lou Piniella intimated Fukudome might get the day off depending on how he fared during batting practice. But the skipper stated, "If he doesn't play, it's just a one-day thing."

                        Fukudome had appeared in all 17 games for the Cubs this season.

                        Murton, who was called up from Triple-A prior to Saturday's game, is 10-for-22 (.455) with a homer and three RBIs in his career against Pittsburgh's lefty starter, Zach Duke.

                        While Fukudome was scratched, pitcher Scott Eyre appears closer to returning. He's been on the disabled list since the start of the season due to left elbow inflammation. The plan is for the veteran to start rehabbing in the coming days.

                        "We're going to send him down to Daytona Beach or someplace that's warm and let him get some work there," Piniella said. "But he's probably still not on the horizon yet of being here. He's been out a while now and he's going to need a little time. What's a little time? A week to 10 days? I don't know."

                                Playing the Pirates everyday would be nice too. Looks like the Cards lost too, so that's good.
