Is the Blue Jays’ Jorge Flores a Prospect?

Regular readers of my stuff will know that the question posed in this post’s title is a difficult one for me.  At 5’5″ and 160 pounds, terms like ‘projectability’ and ‘loud tools’, you know, the ones you want to use when discussing a prospect, don’t apply to the 2012 Vancouver Canadian. Jorge Flores was fun […]


Toronto Blue Jays Top Prospects: Mid Tier Love Part 1

I have had to re-position my goals somewhat when it comes to this list.  Originally, I hoped to get it done prior to the Vancouver Canadians luncheon.  That was a long time ago.  Now the hope is that everything is tied up sometime in mid March.  I’m sure we’ll wait with baited breath. I’d also […]


The Forgotten Man: Where Does Dwight Smith Jr. Play?

2014 was a funny year for Toronto Blue Jays prospects.  With so many names ballooning through the system at unprecedented, given the Jays somewhat conservative history, rates, some names, despite pretty nice seasons were somewhat forgotten. A prime example of that is 2011 supplemental round (53rd overall) pick and 2012 Vancouver Canadian Dwight Smith Jr. […]


Vancouver Canadians 2012 Left Fielders

Vancouver Canadians 2012 Left Fielders

After making our way around the infield we now move to the outfield.  Similar to the infield, most of the players spent a bit of time at multiple positions so I’ll defer to Baseball Reference and categorize by starts.  I may take some artistic license to even the posts out a bit.  See how we […]


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 […]


That may have dashed the C’s 1st half title chances

That may have dashed the C’s 1st half title chances

The C’s dropped their 3rd in a row last night with a 5-1 loss to the Boise Hawks.  They now sit 4 and a half back of the Water-Sox with 12 to play.  Fact that none of those 12 are head to heads with Everett means will be very tough to make up the ground. […]
