Astros closer Chad Qualls still said to be untouchable

Astros Rumors: Houston unlikely to trade Chad Qualls

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...

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.

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.
