2013 Vancouver Canadians Predictions

Welcome back Clayton, the umps will still be bad in 2013 (photo courtesy of battersbox.ca)

We’re still a ways away from pitchers and catchers reporting to Dunedin, and even further away from the end of extended spring training and the announcement of the Canadians roster.  Despite that, we can still try and come up with some predictions for the 2013 season.  So, from the serious to the inane, presenting the […]


Vancouver Canadians 2012 1st Basemen

This guy is flat out huge

As I mentioned in an earlier piece, as news for the Canadians will be light during the off-season, I’m going to run a series of posts looking at each position, who manned it in 2012 for the C’s, and where those players may end up in 2013.  I was having a think and decided I […]


2 Time Champs

2 Time Champs

Like the world famous Croydon Pirates who repeated as British Baseball’s National Champions in ’04 and ’05, the Vancouver Canadians doubled up in 2012.  Winning the Northwest League crown for a second consecutive year.  It has taken me awhile to post about it, because I’m only just coming down from a ten day beer bender […]


Regular Season Stats

Regular Season Stats

Prior to today’s opening playoff game, I have posted final regular season stats for both the hitters and pitchers.  I debated setting some sort of innings and at bats limits to whittle the names down somewhat, but decided to leave as is to show all the names that have worn C’s black, red, and white […]


The Yak Attack

Gonna be a good day today

After my Replacements post yesterday, I toddled off to the Nat to see the 4 replacements + Taylor Cole in action.  I had hoped to do a quick write up on how those 5 got on, but unfortunately work (and a little bit of life) got in the way.  So now we’re 3 days removed from […]


The Replacements

The Replacements

As a reference to Sly Stallone and his repeated attempts to stay relevant in Hollywood (at least he has a paying career mind, so I can’t really be that negative), this post will hopefully intelligently break down the players who joined the C’s through the season.  In many instances it will be these ‘replacements’ that […]


C’s News and Notes

I forgot to mention that McFarland is an ex-C

I’ve updated both the hitting and pitching stats today.  On the hitting side I included Dwight Smith Jr’s Bluefield stats as……. Aug. 9: OF Dwight Smith, Jr., assigned to Vancouver Canadians (Short-A) from Bluefield Blue Jays (Rookie-APP). #bluejays — Blue Jays Moves (@BlueJaysMoves) August 9, 2012 I originally pushed for Dwight’s promotion here.  Now, the […]


The Jays Org is Active

Actually, that beard is getting better

There’s been a ton of activity of late throughout Toronto’s organizational rungs and the with the big club itself.  Unfortunately, not all the movements were by design.  The injuries continue to pile up, both with the Jays and their minor league playing staff.  So, let’s save talking about JP Arencibia’s broken hand until the end […]


Jesse Hernandez: You Beauty

Umm, what's it like up there?

This post will be written (at least at the start) more from a ‘fan’ perspective than from my recently jaundiced ‘I want to be a scout’s’ eyes.  So, let’s celebrate Jesse Hernandez.  As I’ve mentioned previously, we here at YourVanCs have a bit of a soft spot for Jesse after he started and won the […]


Vancouver Canadians Prospecting – Who’s on their way to the C’s?

Vancouver Canadians Prospecting – Who’s on their way to the C’s?

After mentioning in my last post that Kyle Anderson had been promoted to the C’s from the GCL Jays I happened upon a note that Philip Brua had been sent from Vancouver to Lansing.  Philip was a C’s returnee so good to see him earn a promotion after a good start to this season.  Brua […]
