Blue Jays Minor League Review – The Rock

Interviewing the Rock

I told this story on the most recent edition of the YourVancCs podcast but for those that missed it, here it is again, in brief.  After meeting the current edition of the C’s this past Monday I was jumping into my car when I noticed a very recognizable ex-Expo, carrying a far too large Blue […]


Blue Jays Minor League Update – First Few Weeks

I wish someone would draw a hard and fast line in the sand as to when small sample sizes end and we can start reading far too much into what 20 year old kids are managing in the lower echelons of minor league baseball.  With most of the Jays affiliates almost 20 games deep into […]


Notes From Blue Jays Minor League Camp – Part Three

Brendan Kalfus takes a break during batting practice

There’s going to be a lot of firsts for the younger Blue Jays over the next weeks/months.  First trip to Montreal, where I really hope Miguel Castro tried poutine.  A lot of it.  First opportunity to play in Yankee stadium (although not for Dan Norris as Buck Martinez found out during yesterday’s interview): Opening day […]

I know.  I made some wild promises a few weeks ago.  Claiming my Blue Jays top 30 prospect list would be out prior to Christmas.  A gift, so to speak, for all the readers out there.  Turns out all those promises were patently false.  Between house guests, kids, and all the beer in Vancouver, absolutely […]

With less than 10 days until the start of the 2014 major league draft, Alex Anthopoulos and the Blue Jays scouting staff will be fully focused (despite some recent minor league transactions) on cross checking their draft board and whittling the list of who they make take with the 9th and 11th picks down to a […]

Toronto Blue Jays 2012 third round pick and aspiring safety for Ole Miss University, Anthony Alford, finished his schooling for the year and arrived in Florida Sunday.  What follows is anyone’s guess, including, I’d surmise, the Jays themselves.  They’ll need to see what kind of shape Alford is in, how he reacts to everyday baseball activities, […]

The rule 4 MLB draft kicks off Thursday with rounds one and two on the dock. Three through ten will take place Friday and finally, on Saturday, we see the remaining thirty rounds. The changes made to the structure of the draft, how the slot system works, and penalties incurred for going over a team’s […]

In the never-ending quest to predict the Vancouver Canadians opening day roster prior to…..Opening Day, some interesting bits of intelligence are starting to filter over the airwaves. The MLB draft takes place from the 6th through 8th of June which will provide a chunk of the roster. As we get closer to the draft, the […]


Vancouver Canadians 2012 Center Fielders

‘Put me in coach, I’m ready to play today……’ And, with that classic line we round out the positional review of the outfield with probably the most exciting group, the center fielders.  Center, as a position, has always held a bit of mystique for me.  And it’s not solely because it’s the position I am […]
