There are losses and then there are losses
There have been plenty of tough losses for the D-backs this year, but last night’s 4-3 loss to the Giants seemed to be particularly brutal.
Maybe it was because of how upset closer Chad Qualls looked having given up the lead for his good friend Doug Davis after throwing just three pitches. I really felt for Qualls listening to him talk about how upset he was to have watched his team work for two hours to get a lead and then have it disappear in a span of a minute or two.
Tough job being a closer, certainly not for those who do not have a lot of mental toughness.
