Beaten But Not Broken in Boise

The Vancouver Canadians did not really come flying out of the traps following their all-star game heroics, losing four straight in Idaho before salvaging the fifth and final game of the series. Fortunately for the C’s, the south division teams did a number on the entirety of the North Division, especially Everett, so Vancouver currently […]


Canadians Double Dip

This was a good weekend. And no, not because my wife and kids were out of town, saying that would just be mean. The highlights of the weekend included some B.C. Day fireworks and cheap A&W root beer floats. The main event, however, was a pair of home debuts from home grown pitchers. Both Tom […]


Two Canadians Heading to the…..Canadians?

The beauty of the internet, specifically twitter, is that, like Varys and his numerous ‘spiders’, you have the ability to disseminate unbelievable amounts of information in one place (forgive the Game of Thrones reference, am feeling particularly nerdy today). Whereas previously you were expected to ‘work the phones’, now a very interesting piece of information […]


I Finally get my Baseball Fix

The Canadians return from their longest trip of the season, an eight day marathon (one of two on the season) today for a six game homestand, before, once again, leaving us baseball addicts in the lurch. Those who are of age probably won’t mind the next trip though, as it’s to the Northwest League’s newest […]


Mother Nature Snaps Canadians Streak

I suppose it was going to have to be snapped somehow. Since Salem-Keizer couldn’t do it on their own accord, they needed to call in some re-inforcements. Mother nature was hired and delivered the requisite amount of rain to finish Sunday’s game after five innings. It just so happened that in the top of the […]


Vancouver Canadians don’t Bring the Rain

Just like I’m no scout, I’m also no weatherman. And I’m sure they do study to get to their lofty positions, but wow, do they ever get it wrong in Vancouver. Today was no exception as a forecast of rain all day (and it was quite gloomy in the morning) turned into a nice mix […]


A Walking Start

This has been a pet peeve of mine for some time now, so excuse my opening paragraph rant. I just do not understand Team 1410. The local, and only ‘all sports network’ has an annoying habit of syndicating U.S. talk shows over broadcasting live sporting events. For me, I couldn’t believe ANYONE would want to […]


Canadians Starting Staff – Part Deux

In Javier we trust

I can’t believe this is my first post of August.  After undergoing a brain induced coma whilst watching the Jays get swept by Seattle, it was diagnosed with a mild case of Olympic fever.  But as that winds down, it’s back to baseball and back to Your Vancouver Canadians.  Obviously quite a bit has happened […]


Vancouver Canadians Stats and Notes

Ben White

I’ve updated both the hitters and pitchers stats sections.  Some interesting tidbits in both.  But, before discussing the numbers, a couple of organizational moves get a brief mention.  The C’s released RHP Daniel Tiburcio on Friday.  Tiburcio was a Rule 5 pick up from the Braves organization in ’10.  He had 4 years of pro […]


Canadians Starting Staff

Self Portrait

After Javier Avendano’s excellent start against Salem-Keiser last night, thought it might be worthwhile to have a quick look at the C’s starting staff and how it might play out over the next few weeks.  As mentioned previously, the Jays organization have stated on numerous occasions that they prefer their affiliates (and thus their minor […]
