Thank goodness. Todd Zolecki got a few great quotes from Chad before he jumped into his cab left. I feel bad for Chad, but I’m pretty glad that he’s gone. It just wasn’t meant to be.

Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee summoned Qualls into Charlie Manuel’s office before this afternoon’s game against the Pirates at Citizens Bank Park, where he found Ruben Amaro Jr., Scott Proefrock and Manuel waiting for him.
Amaro told Qualls he had been designated for assignment. The Phillies selected left-hander Jeremy Horst’s contract from Triple-A to take his place on the roster. Horst went 1-2 with a 2.11 ERA in 38 1/3 innings in Lehigh Valley.
