The Braves' Resop Rewind

Per the latest Mark Bowman blog:

Chris Resop spent the past season and a half pitching in Japan and now he's ready to once again compete for a spot in the Braves bullpen. He has signed a Minor League contract and received an invitation to Spring Training.  

The 27-year-old right-hander, who made 16 appearances with the 2008 Braves, is excited about his arm strength and the sink that he's recently gained with his two-seam fastball.

Cox came out of spring training in '98 all, "this dude can throw 98 mph," but it turns out 98 with no movement won't cut it in the bigs. He had some promise, and I like the minor league deal. If nothing else he's good organizational depth.

Bowman also talks about Chuck James, Greg Maddux, Chipper Jones, and that whole Mark McGwire thing.
