CHAD QUALLS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Astros closer Chad Qualls still said to be untouchable

Chad Qualls would seem to be the perfect trade candidate. He's a 35-year-old closer for the non-contending Astros. But Houston continues to tell teams Qualls, who will make $3 million next year in the second year of a two-year deal, is unavailable.

A's score six in ninth, stun Astros 7-4

Distributing the offense evenly across nine innings is apparently overrated as far as the A’s are concerned. Trailing by three runs Tuesday against the Astros, they broke out for six runs and batted around in the top of the ninth and stunned Houston 7-4 at Minute Maid Park. Oakland scored three times off Astros closer Chad Qualls – a pitcher they also rallied against in the...

Astros Rumors: Houston unlikely to trade Chad Qualls

The Houston Astros lost in a blowout to the Oakland A's yesterday by the score of 13-1. The loss dropped the Astros to 42-60, fourth in the American League West. Although 21 1/2 games behind the A's, the Astros are not looking to be as active being "sellers" as in previous seasons. The Astros have improved since last season, when they won only 51 games. Some moves...

Astros reluctant to trade young starters, listening on Qualls, Sipp

If anyone's looking for the Astros to make up for their well-documented misstep at the amateur signing deadline by making a big splash at the trade deadline, well, it's probably not happening. Veteran starter Scott Feldman's $30 million, three-year contract probably precludes him from being seen as a key piece (as he was a key ago), and rival executives say the Astros...

Chad Qualls hopes to remain an Astro as trade deadline approaches

Righthander Jose Veras knows what happened at the end of last season when the Astros lost 15 straight in a tailspin that punctuated the franchise’s drop. Veras had been long gone at that point, dealt midseason to the Detroit Tigers for minor league outfielder Danry Vasquez. The Astros signed Veras again in the middle of this season. “Oh yeah, of course,” Veras said when asked...

Video: Chad Qualls falls out during fist-pump

Chad Qualls is athletic enough to pitch, but not to pump his fist. Qualls, 34, has pitched for the Diamondbacks, Phillies, Yankees, Blue Jays, and many more major league teams since 2004. Qualls is a qualified and proven middle reliever in baseball. Yet, as proven during yesterday’s game against the Mets, Qualls is certainly no Tiger woods. Shown in the video below, Qualls falls...

Marlins Pitcher Chad Qualls Wipes Out While Attempting Post-Strikeout Fist Pump (GIF)

Even when the Marlins make a quality play, something goes wrong. Reliever Chad Qualls became the latest victim of that fact Tuesday night, when he botched the execution of his celebratory fist pump and ended up taking a tumble on the infield grass. Qualls escaped his one inning of relief unscathed — on the stat sheet, at least — but the Marlins were not so lucky. The Mets touched...

Marlins pitcher falls doing fist pump

Even when things go right for the Miami Marlins, things go wrong. The team can’t even celebrate correctly, as evidenced by this Chad Qualls fist pump attempt that wound up with the relief pitcher nearly faceplanting straight into the infield grass. To be fair, the Marlins are a little bit rusty when it comes to seeing anything go their way. The post The most Marlins fist pump...

Phillies Fans Give it to Chad Qualls on Twitter

Chad Qualls has, um, struggled this season.  But after allowing Wednesday night's game to get out of reach, Phillies fans took to Twitter and his handle @Qualls50 to give him a piece of their minds directly. There were a couple fans that were nice to him.  Most, however, were nasty:  (Click to enlarge if you need to) There were many more, some too nasty for our family...

Phillies Fans: Get Excited About Chad Qualls

The signing of Chad Qualls means the Phillies are staring down the barrell of a loaded Luxury Tax gun. Photo: APThe signing of Chad Qualls wasn’t one of the bargain basement signings like Juan Pierre or Joel Pineiro where a Phillies fan can argue if it doesn’t work out, we can stash the journeyman 33 year-old reliever in Triple-A. Instead, the signing of Qualls for $1.15 million...
