Found July 31, 2013 on Mets Merized Online:
In case you missed it, here it is… Miami Marlins reliever Chad Qualls squeaked out of trouble in the eighth inning of tonight’s game against the Mets. After allowing a leadoff triple to Marlon Byrd, he struck out Ike Davis, got John Buck to ground out, and then struck out Omar Quintanilla on three pitches to strand Byrd and end the inning with the game tied 2-2. For Qualls it was a moment of jubilation and this is how it all went down… Your browser does not support iframes. I love the way he quickly gets right up as if nobody would notice what an ass he just made of himself.

Video: Chad Qualls falls out during fist-pump

Hoo boy.

What in the Qualls was he thinking?

Chad Qualls Perfects Fist Pump Somersault

((HT: MLB/SNY)) It's one of those rare highlights that turned into something else entirely... What would you call this action after a strike out...??? A fist pump-trip-blown tire-somersault should just about cover it...

Best Thing For Mets Is To Stand Pat And Win As Many Games As Possible

With the trade deadline set to expire at 4:00 PM today, columnist Joel Sherman reports that one Mets official described interest in any of their as nibbles. One Mets official described “nibbles” on players, but nothing more serious. And the Mets have decided if they cannot obtain something they feel strongly about for their future, then why trade Marlon Byrd or Bobby Parnell...

Not dealing Byrd, Parnell just to trade

Seeking a rummage-sale bargain? Don’t bother calling the Mets. Despite the team’s slow start to the second half Mets brass still intends to hold onto player assets beyond tomorrow’s non-waiver trading deadline organizational sources said yesterday. That means unless the Mets are “blown away” by an offer Marlon Byrd and Bobby Parnell specifically will remain with the team...

Thoughts on Sandy’s Conference Call and the Trade Deadline

Here is a summary of what Sandy Alderson had to say during his conference call that concluded a short while ago. He did not make any moves today because the players that will help the Mets win this season still have a certain value to the team and that the return on trading those players did not reflect that same value. He basically reiterated what I have been saying all along particularly...
