Chad Qualls is likely to lose his job at closer

Chad Qualls headshot.jpgArizona Diamondbacks closer Chad Qualls got creamed yesterday, allowing three runs in the ninth. But for the grace of God and Chris Young’s walkoff homer he would have blown the whole game.  A.J. Hinch had a front row seat for it, and it sounds like he’s seen enough:

“It’s an ugly scene. He’s bearing the brunt of the
struggles in the bullpen, so at some point it has to happen (pulling
him), where you can’t leave it into fate and decide and try something

Hinch made a point to note that Aaron Heilman has been the most reliable guy in the Dbacks pen, so you have to figure that he’ll start getting the ninth inning call pretty soon.

    Chad Qualls. Is that really his name or did you accidentally plug in your reCaptcha phrase?
    Speaking of which, “the Erhard.” And whatever happened to Werner anyway?

    My fantasy team’s last ranking-ERA and WHIP thank Qualls fondly

    Chad Qualls is the closer? (she asks, facetiously.)
    I thought Dan Haren had him killed last year.
