WHAT I SAID: “Stuff-wise, he’s got enough to pick up a few saves this season.”
WHAT I MEANT: “Stuff-wise, he’s got enough to pick up a few hotel tabs in PCL cities everywhere this season while he gets it together.”
A horrific start in which Scott gave up game-losing home runs on back-to-back days in San Francisco saw him demoted to Colorado Springs for the better part of the season. From late April to early August, Scott toiled, punching out batters left and right while learning how to keep the ball in the park. Once he came back in August, it was as the effective reliever we expected at the start of the year. Dohmann posted a 2.59 ERA in 23 appearances over the last two months of the season and showed the ability to rebound from adversity. Get used to this hard throwing Cajun, because I think he’ll be around awhile.
IN 2006, SCOTT WILL… be an integral part of the Rockies bullpen.
