The following rant/opinion is straight from the keeper of this blog, and is not the opinion of Scott Dohmann.
I try not to lose my temper and say things here that may affect Scott and his position/reputation. I certainly don't want him caught in the middle of things posted here or burn any bridges... but I am a fan, and this is a fan site.
I have watched Scott start the season with the Rays. He had a less-than-stellar start, yes... but he has always had a rough preseason. He got sent down to AAA. Ok, that happens when players need improvement. However, I have watched everyone around Scott get pulled up from AAA. The final straw for me was watching them go TO A DIFFERENT TEAM to pull someone to the bullpen before Scott. I've seen zero support from 'fans'. DRays Bay = nope. The Devil Rays 'fan' forum = zero. What I do see is: (1) a lot of complaining about the players they have on the team. (2) Complaints about who they don't have on the team. (3) Complaints about players they wish they had on the team.
In spite of seeing Scott stay in AAA, we watch AND SUPPORT the Rays. Why? Because Scott is part of that organization! We support Scott and the team he plays for. Now I'm just tired of supporting an organization that doesn't want him.
It's no secret that the bullpen needs help.. so why not bring him up? I would think that everyone who came up before him to this point got called up because they were better fits for the team, but changes are still being made and Scott still sits in Durham. I find it hard to believe that statistics are involved, check his stats for yourself------------------------->
