CHAD QUALLS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Bullpen arms with velocity increasing with age

Was there ever an age when so many different bullpen pitchers pitched with such high velocity? Nowadays, it seems that every bullpen has three to five guys who can throw the ball 95 MPH or higher. It's crazy. I happened to think of this last night while watching Chad Qualls and Matt Albers of the Astros pitch. Both pitchers came in throwing gas. Qualls averaged 94.8 MPH on...

Closer by Committee in Houston

Astros Manager Bo Porter announced he will begin the season with a closer by committee. The committee will include Chad Qualls, Josh Fielders and Matt Albers. We at FFLockerRoom have felt all along that Qualls would be given the first crack at save opportunities simply based on his experience and success last season. That being said don’t be surprised to see the 28 year old Fields...

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 celebrates strikeout with fist pump, falling down (vid)

Hoo boy. If the sight of Chad Qualls emphatically celebrating a strikeout by pumping his fist and then falling down after he stomps off the mound doesn’t epitomize the current incarnation of the beleaguered ball club that is the Miami Marlins, what does? Qualls, after retiring Mets infielder Omar Quintanilla in the top of 8th [...]The post Marlins pitcher Chad Qualls celebrates...

What in the Qualls was he thinking?

Marlins reliever Chad Qualls had one heck of a celebration after recording the final out in the New York Mets' eighth inning in Miami on Tuesday night. Qualls entered a tie game in the top of the eighth, but he surrendered a leadoff triple to Marlon Byrd. However, the right-hander escaped the jam, leading to his awkward celebration roll -- or flop . Qualls, who is with his...

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...
