The Pirates pick up Braves' pitcher Chris Resop

Aug 4, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

This was a waiver deal, but not revocable waivers. The Braves requested outright waivers on pitcher Chris Resop on Monday, the Pirates claimed him and now he’s theirs.

A good pickup, too.  At least one worth the waiver price. Resop, who is 27, has had some tough luck in various cups of coffee for the Marlins, Dodgers and Braves, but he had a 2.09 ERA, struck out ten batters per nine innings, had a serviceable walk rate and didn’t allow many homers in 15 AAA starts this year, which was his first real action as a starter in either the minors or majors.

Could be nothing, but could turn out to be a move with some upside. In other words, it’s exactly the kind of move the Pirates should be making.

    So…the Pirates are doing things right now? Looks like I may need to go get my disaster supplies ready, because surely this signifies the beginning of the end.
