Waiting Game

Scott is listed as Non-Tendered, I believe it means he is still under contract with the Royals, but is being shopped around the league.
I'll post as soon as I know more.

Season Ending

Well, it's been a bumpy ride for Scott this last part of the season. Hopefully he can start fresh with his new team next year, now that he has had a few months to get adjusted to the Royals.

He's back home now, and he surrounded by his family and friends...
There's plenty of hunting, golf and barbecues in the offseason to keep him busy. I'll update during the offseason as things happen.

Wednesday, September 20, 2006


Sorry, I'm behind on my updates... been hectic here.

The Royals seem to rollercoaster by the week, beating the top teams in the league, then losing by a few runs to lesser teams.
Such is baseball I guess.....

I'm sure Scott will have his ERA down considerably by the end of the season..

Scott threw another scoreless inning Tuesday night.
Short post, but to the point.

Tuesday, September 12, 2006

Bounce Back

In spite of the losing effort to the Red Sox, Scott came back on Sunday and threw 1.1 scoreless innings with 2 strikeouts.

Friday, September 08, 2006

Boston Baked Beans

Scott threw a solid seventh inning tonight against the Red Sox. No hits, 1 strikeout (Big Papi).
The second inning was not as smooth, as he gave up a homerun to Varitek. It wasn't a bad pitch, either....
I can't figure it out.
He's not making bad pitches, but still prone to the long ball.
His slider was looking really good though. Ah well, keep trudging on.

Tuesday, September 05, 2006

What A Ripoff

Scott faced one batter, and walked him... then ended up with the loss?
His run would have tied the score, but why the loss?

Hmm. Perhaps I missed something.

*EDIT* The Royals were up by 2 when Scott's walk loaded the bases. So Scott's runner ended up being the run that put the Yankees up.

Tuesday, August 29, 2006


KC starts their series with the Twins today......

Saturday, August 26, 2006

Holdin' It Down

Although KC lost, Scott threw 2 beautiful innings. Four strikeouts, no runs.

Saturday, August 19, 2006


The last few outings have been rough, including a few homeruns.
I'm guessing it's taking a while to hammer out whatever problems Scott was having earlier in the season.
Regardless, his slider is one devastating pitch....

Saturday, August 12, 2006


Although the Royals dropped both games today to the Tribe, Scott threw very well.
A perfect inning in the first game, and one batter with 2 inherited runners in the second game.
He gave up no runs.

Hopefully tomorrow the Royals will fare better against the Indians.

Wednesday, August 09, 2006

Royals Win! Royals Win!

I should be in bed right now, but I just watched Scott throw a masterful 1.2 innings of work to get the win!!
1 hit, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts, no runs.
The 2 K's were Youkilis and Pena.
The bottom of the 9th was the setting for the comeback win. German led off with a triple, scored by DeJesus' sac fly. Grudzy followed with a double, and knocked in by Sweeney for the win.

Probably the most exciting ending I have seen this year.

You know, even though players are traded all of the time, it is probably tough to adjust to.
In Scott's situation, he is not only coming to a new team, but a new league as well. From the National League where he was beginning to learn the hitters not only by reputation, but by preferences. Now that he is in the American League, where he doesn't know the hitters at all other than by name.
It has to be tough, but Scott is up to the challenge.

Back Up On The Horse

After a rough outing Friday night, Scott thew 2 innings last night against the Twins.
One earned run, a few walks.. but at least they got him back in the game to throw.

I'm a little upset about the lack of support that he is getting from fans, but that's ok too.
Scott will get himself back up where he know he can be.

Saturday, August 05, 2006

Wild Pitch?

When I think of a wild pitch, I think of the ball going over the catcher, or a foot before the plate, or even 'aim for the mascot!'. But I saw the so called 'wild pitch' last night.... it was a bit low, but catchable.
I'm not making excuses for Scott. I know it wasn't a perfect pitch. I'm not blaming the catcher, either. I am just explaining what I saw.. more or less for the people who read the stats and see that Scott got the loss due to a wild pitch. It really didn't go down that way at all.

It seems there is always an obstacle in the way of Scott's performance. A blemish that stands out...

No way to go but up!
Keep trudging ahead!

First Outing

Great first inning, a little shaky in the 2nd one.
The highlight was plunking Konerko (unintentional, of course).

1.1 Innings
3 Hits
1 ER
1 K

Gotta get the butterflies out, and I think Scott did a great job of that.

Meeting The Team

Here's a clip from the Royals website regarding Scott's first meeting with the team:

There goes ... Dohmann
Closer to Kansas City than Shealy was -- Memphis as opposed to Denver -- Dohmann got to the ballpark during the sixth inning of Monday's game and was soon outfitted with a cap and uniform. He was activated and available to pitch. Before that, though, he touched base with his manager and new teammates, creating an entry scene similar to Roy Hobbs' in "The Natural."
"Actually, he walked through the dugout here," Bell said. "I wasn't quite sure who it was. I thought it was a man off the street."

Tuesday, August 01, 2006

Hello KC!

Here's to Scott's fresh start at his new home:

Monday, July 31, 2006


Scott and Ryan Shealy have been traded to the Royals.
I'm really hoping that Scott can make his mark here.
So long, Colorado. Goodbye to everyone who was nice enough to link to us here.....

The Royal Treatment

Scott has been traded to the Kansas City Royals. I'll follow up with more details.

Wednesday, July 19, 2006


NOTE: The following opinions are those of the website owner, NOT SCOTT DOHMANN.

I'm so disgusted with the fact that Scott is back down in AAA, that I won't even watch the games. Bad decisions, in my opinion, have led to the recent string of losses. Too many pitchers in the bullpen is one problem. Having the starters go too long before bringing in relief is another.
I know the bullpen has gotten a lot of flack lately, but if you cannot score more than 3 runs in a game... you cannot expect to win. Four of the last six games, the Rockies didn't score more than 4 runs. The bullpen could have helped, sure. But if you can't get run support, it doesn't matter how well you hold the opposing offense. So Scott is back down the same night he came in with bases loaded and 1 out. He closed out the inning with no runs given up. Some changes should be made, yes. But I don't feel that Scott should have been sent down. Last I had heard, Hurdle said he was going to continue with the bullpen that had gotten them where they are now. Righto. He said they were going to 'sit on their hands' and let the bullpen get out of the slump. I hear ya. He should have sat on his hands instead of grabbing over the hill relief pitchers before the season started. He had a young group in AAA, he should have used them instead of spending money they don't have on people they can't use. Again, this is just my opinion and I am biased towards Scott.... but as a manager, show some consistancy. Stand behind your word.
Oh, and let's take a look at one of Scott's replacements:

WELCOME TO THE SHOW: Reliever Manuel Corpas made his big-league debut in the eighth inning, surrendering a home run to Craig Wilson. Corpas showed off a 93-mph fastball and a good slider

I didn't watch the game, but I wonder..... was he showing off the fastball or the slider when Craig Wilson demolished it?

Monday, July 17, 2006

Late Update

Scott and Gavin take some time to bond during the All-Star break.

Saturday, July 08, 2006


Scott threw a great inning last night against the Diamondbacks.
Won't be long before his ERA is back down where it used to be.

Sunday, June 25, 2006

Bounce Back

Scott recovered nicely last night by throwing a perfect 8th inning. The Rox put together a string of hits early to get the win over the Rangers.

Saturday, June 24, 2006

At Least They're Out Of The Way Now

Until last night, Scott hadn't given up a HR all year. Last night, he gave up back to back. However, they were to 2 of the most dangerous hitters in baseball: Teixeira and Blalock.
So, on a positive note.... the homeruns are out of the way. No more pressure.
Here's to making them the only 2 of the season.

Go Scott!

Monday, June 19, 2006


Scott continues to throw well, despite one rough spot against the Cardinals earlier in the series.
Check out his stats -------------------->

Friday, June 09, 2006

First Win

Congratulations to Scott, who got his first win Wednesday against the Pirates.
He threw two and a third scoreless innings.
Things are looking up for Scott and the team, hopefully they can string together a few wins!

Tuesday, June 06, 2006


Although they were not stellar innings, Scott threw 2 scoreless ones last night against the Pirates.
I got to watch him throw, and while he was not on top of his game... his slider was amazing. He had a few batters just waving at it.

His ERA is down to 4.08 I believe...

Monday, June 05, 2006

Nice To Hear Compliments

Triple-A relief: Right-hander Scott Dohmann, demoted to make room for Sun-Woo Kim in the bullpen, has thrown four scoreless innings at Colorado Springs. He has struck out seven against two hits and one walk. Colorado Springs pitching coach Chuck Kniffin said Dohmann has provided leadership during a short period.
"We have a lot of guys here that are in Triple-A for the first time," Kniffin said. "Sometimes a guy will come down from the Major League club and for a period of time it takes a few days to get over his disappointment, but not Scotty. The day he got here, I asked if everything was all right and he said, 'Fine, let's get after it.' He's bee a real pro.
"I look for good things from Scotty. He's got two quality pitches [fastball and slider] and great work habits. Hopefully, everybody else picks up on it."

Sunday, June 04, 2006


Scott has been reinstated with the Rockies after about a 10 day stint with the AAA Skysox.
Hopefully Scott can contribute and stop the landslide losses against the Marlins.

Sunday, May 28, 2006

A Victim Of "The Numbers"

Scott is back in AAA, not because of his performance, but because of too many good pitchers in the bullpen. Sun-Woo Kim has come back from an injury, and someone had to go down to make room. I don't expect Scott to stay in AAA very long. He's having a good year and I'm expecting him to finish up strong.

Tuesday, May 23, 2006


Scott had a rough outing last night, walking 3 before getting pulled.
Ah, it happens. I'm sure he's not happy about it, but he has to be pretty pleased with this season. His numbers look good, and the team is doing quite well.

Wednesday, May 17, 2006


Scott continues to throw well as the season progresses.
Looks like his confidence is back, and the bullpen seems to be gelling.

Quick Stat: Lefties are batting .077 vs Scott this season.

Saturday, May 13, 2006

Update From Houston

I got to attend the game last night against the Astros.
Not a great start to the series, I can tell you.
Jason Jennings did not throw a bad game, the 'stros were just on fire. Probably had a lot to do with the whooping we gave them in Colorado.
Scott gave up 3 runs, but let me vent. A few bleeder hits and one legit hit by Preston. But catcher's interference??? Who gets on base with that? Ah well, if you feel good about getting on base in that fashion, more power to ya.

Anyway, we're going to the game tonight at 6:05. I'm hoping for a better showing, as we are surrounded by Astros fans by a ratio of about 300:1.

Go Rox!

Thursday, May 11, 2006


Due to the fantastic pitching from the starters, Scott's appearances have been limited.
However, he has done a great job when he did pitch.
We're hoping to watch him pitch this weekend against Houston. It's as close to home as he will get!

Friday, May 05, 2006


Scott threw a perfect inning last night against the Reds.
It would appear that Scott is in control on the mound, he looks confident and his stats are reflecting it.

Keep it up Scott!

Wednesday, May 03, 2006

Mixed Feelings

I actually got to see Scott's inning last night on tv, so I feel like I can comment on it.
The pitch to Jones was not a bad pitch by any means. It was low and inside. Andruw is a great hitter, he put it to the wall.

Scott allowed Cook's runner from first to score, but it wasn't marked against Scott.
So, he did get himself out without an EARNED run, but he didn't get the save.

I still feel like Scott is throwing very well, he looks to be in command and confident. A win would have been really nice though.

Sunday, April 30, 2006


Against Florida today:

..Dohmann struck out two in 1 1/3 innings before turning the game over to Mesa...

And the ERA lowers even more!

Saturday, April 29, 2006

Unleash The Dohbermann

What a night.
Extra innings, 14 pitches - 11 strikes, 2 K's and a save on the side.

It's a beautiful thing. Congrats, Scott!!!

Here is one of a handful of recaps.

Thursday, April 27, 2006

Honey, I Shrunk The ERA

Scott threw another great inning last night, giving up no hits or runs. Could be the start of another run of scoreless innings. Check the link here for his stats ------------->

Monday, April 24, 2006


Scott threw an inning tonight against Philly.
11 pitches, 7 strikes. No hits, no runs, no walks.

Me likey.

Sunday, April 23, 2006


Our thoughts and prayers go out to Todd and his family. He is undergoing tests to find the source of his stomach pains.
More information is here.

We're hoping for the best.

Thursday, April 20, 2006


Scott made it back up to the Rox, and threw his first game last night.
A little rough in the first inning, but recovered well to finish up. It's good to see him back!

The Suspense Is Too Painful

Hurdle said a decision could be made today regarding relief pitcher Scott Dohmann's status. Dohmann is eligible to come off the disabled list after dealing with a viral infection. ... The most likely candidates to lose a roster spot to Dohmann are Sun-woo Kim or Ramon Ramirez. If Kim was designated for assignment, he would have to clear waivers before reporting to AAA Colorado Springs. He is out of options.

Monday, April 17, 2006


Pitching pileup: Scott Dohmann was scheduled to pitch for Triple-A Colorado Springs on Sunday afternoon as part of his rehab assignment in coming back from an illness that kept him off the Opening Day roster. Dohmann made three appearances for Class A Modesto and could be ready to return to the Rockies shortly.
"Dohmann 's going in the right direction," Hurdle said. "We'll pitch him an inning [Sunday] just to see how he shows up. There might be need to pitch more, there might not be. We'll just see how it goes."
Dohmann joins Byung-Hyun Kim on the rehab trail, with Kim having made his first start on Saturday with Colorado Springs, giving up one run in 3 2/3 innings.
Mike DeJean, who went on the DL with right shoulder tendinitis on Wednesday, is expected to start throwing again in the middle of the upcoming week.

Sunday, April 16, 2006


Thanks to Mark over at Bad Altitude for the added support:

".....Lots of thoughts on this one, which I attended in person. First of all, let's hurry up and get Mike DeJean and Scott Dohmann back healthy. Tom Martin and Sunny Kim are not good for much besides turning blowouts into cheap save opportunities for Brian Fuentes. Fuentes, Ray King, and Jose Mesa have looked very impressive so far this season. It would be a shame to ruin their effectiveness through overwork....."

Sunday, April 09, 2006


Scott threw 2 innings today for the Modesto Nuts in his journey to recovery.
He walked 1, struck out 2 and surrendered no runs.

Things look pretty good, Scott should be back with the team by next week.

Friday, April 07, 2006


This is from

Right-handed reliever Scott Dohmann, recovering from a viral infection, retired five batters on 21 pitches in a camp game in Tucson, Ariz., on Thursday. He will pitch an inning on Sunday, most likely as the starter, for Class A Modesto at Stockton to begin his injury rehab assignment. The Rockies want him to be able to pitch more than one inning and on consecutive days before evaluating his return.

Friday, March 31, 2006


This is taken from

Right-handed pitcher Scott Dohmann, placed on the disabled list because of the impact of a virus he battled last week, has begun full workouts and bullpen sessions in his first steps of recovery. He is expected to pitch in a game this weekend and will remain in extended spring training to build strength. Once he is game ready, he will be sent on a minor-league rehabilitation assignment.

Tuesday, March 28, 2006

More Bad News

From the AZSTARNET website:

"...Reliever Scott Dohmann, who hasn't pitched since March 19, remains ill with a viral infection. Pitching coach Bob Apodaca said Dohmann, who went home Monday after playing catch, "is not close to healthy right now."
Manager Clint Hurdle said the possibility of Dohmann's illness keeping him off the opening-day roster was "realistic." ...."

Sunday, March 26, 2006

Way Under the Weather

Scott was taken to the ER today, he hasn't been feeling well all week and finally was taken in for some relief.
I haven't heard what he is sick from, but I will keep everyone posted.
Thoughts and prayers are with him, Tara and Gavin, and the rest of the family.


It would appear that Scott has an infection, which may be allergy related. He was given medicine for his sore throat, and was realeased from the hospital. We're hoping for a speedy recovery!

Friday, March 24, 2006


Right-hander Scott Dohmann staked his claim to a job with two sparkling innings for a win over Seattle on Sunday: "Scottie Dohmann has got a foot in that door if not two feet," Apodaca said.

Looking good, so far. I believe Scott throws today. I'll try and get the update if he does throw.

Sunday, March 19, 2006

Oh Yeaaah!

"..Scott Dohman provided solid relief for two innings, allowing two hits while striking out three for the win..."

He also picked up the win. Now he's starting to cook! Those 3 strikeouts ties him for the most on the team (9), including starters.

Saturday, March 18, 2006


I am unable to watch any of the games, and stats are tough to come by during spring training. However, Scott is battling his way to opening day form. A few rough spots, but he is constantly working out the bugs.

Monday, March 13, 2006

Meet the Rockies

Dan has a nice "meet the team" theme going, complete with inside stats and predictions. Give him a look!

Thursday, March 09, 2006


So close on his last inning pitched, Scott had one strikeout and two fly-outs. Unfortunately, there was a homerun in the mix there also. Again, this is what preseason is for!
By opening day, all of the bugs will be worked out.

Monday, March 06, 2006

Slight Stumble

Scott threw one inning yesterday against Kansas City. One inning, 3 hits, 2 runs, one strikeout.
That is what pre-season is for, right?

I'll try and get more details to post.

Friday, March 03, 2006

Preseason Starts!

Scott threw his first inning of the season Thursday against the White Sox. No hits, one walk, no runs....... starting off on the right foot so far. If anyone has more details on the game, feel free to email them. Thanks!

Thursday, March 02, 2006


According to this article, the Rockies aren't predicted to do well in final numbers for the season. I think it's junk... who the hell comes up with those numbers anyway??

Friday, February 24, 2006

Um.. Poll Blew Up

The poll I had up earlier mysteriously vanished.... but the answer was Boudreaux's Butt Paste.
I'll try and get a poll that will stick around for longer than a few days!

Pre-Season Poll

Here's a little fun for ya. Take a shot at the poll on the right hand side -------->, I'll post the correct answer in a few weeks.

This Is What I Like To See

A little respect and optimism. This article is courtesy of the Rockies website.

Friday, February 10, 2006

Fare Thee Well, Brother

Brother-in-law, actually. But it doesn't make it any easier to know that he will be gone for the next 8-9 months. When you think of professional ballplayers, it's easy to forget the fact that most of them are on the road for the better part of the year. Not all of them are able to take their families with them. 'Just another day at the office' means being in another city or state. Fortunately, Tara and Gavin will be in Denver. It's really tough to send my sister and nephew off, also. Ah well. Such is the life. We'll miss them until they return. In the meantime, we have email and phone calls to keep in touch.
The flip side to this coin is that it signals the start of the greatest sport around: Baseball. Soon the smell of freshly cut grass will replace the smell of the fireplace in the air. Hot dogs, beer, pretzels and the roar of the crowd!
That was my little take on the ups and downs of the new season, but I welcome it with open arms.

Friday, February 03, 2006

This Internet Thingy

Thanks to BASEBALL WITH AN ALTITUDE and Mark Donohue's BAD ALTITUDE, our little blog here has travelled far and wide, to bring good tidings and cheer. Or just a lot of stuff about Scott.
That'll work. Thanks for the linkage, guys.

More Off-Season Fun

Another trip to the links with Scott and Devey. We had a great time as you can see:

Monday, January 16, 2006

Giving Something Back

Scott participated in a banquet here in Lafayette this past week. It's a fund raiser put on by the Lafayette Parish Housing Authority. Phil Devey participated also.

Tuesday, January 10, 2006

This Season Can't Start Soon Enough

Here is just one of many articles with outlooks and guesses for the Rox lineup this season. As much as I hate to see Scott, Tara and Gavin go..... I cannot wait for Scott to make his mark.
I'm tired of seeing his name in the tail end of everyone's lineup. He had a rough start last year, yes. Just follow his stats through the season, after his comeback from AAA ball. He finished up as strong or stronger than most relievers in the club. Give him some respect!
Selfish, yes... a little. But now that football is ending (for my fantasy team, its over), and I can't stand to watch basketball... I need my yearly dose of baseball. I know I am not alone here. As long as I can squeeze another round of golf in with Scott before he leaves.........
