Charting Evan Smith – For Real This Time

Evan Smith delivers for the C's

This just shows you how long it’s been since I’ve written an actual post.  Since I charted (if you’ve read the article, you know it was ‘charting’ in name only) Evan Smith‘s last home start I haven’t managed to see another pitch of Vancouver Canadians baseball.  I was back in action Monday night though and […]


Third Time Lucky for Roberto Osuna?

Toronto Blue Jays prospect (and my personal off-season pet project) Roberto Osuna made his third appearance Monday (the 20th) in the prospect showcase that is the Arizona Fall League.  And, without too much preamble, let’s just say I jinxed him.  This tweet was sent out after his second inning of work: Seems Roberto Osuna is […]


Charting Zakery ‘Wasi’ Wasilewski

Wasi fires something at the Everett Aquasox

The Vancouver Canadians played game two of their crucial series versus the Everett Aquasox last Saturday.  With me actually able to make it and Virginia native Zakery Wasilewski starting, I took the opportunity to chart someone besides Miguel Castro.  Let’s be honest though, charting anyone other than Castro (Labourt excepted) is like Christmas as a […]


Charting Miguel Castro – Part Dos

The Canadians returned to sunny Vancouver Friday evening after, what seemed like (to me at least), an interminably long road trip, to face their perennial North division rival the Everett Aquasox. Miguel Castro was on the bump for the C’s, making his sixth start of the season. It was hot as Hades at the Nat so […]


Vancouver Canadians Take One for Road

The Canadians got their best of three Northwest League North division finals series off to a flying start with a 5-1 win over the visiting Everett Aquasox. The C’s rode some very good pitching, the key to the series as per my preview, and an outer space inspired sixth inning rally for the victory. The […]


Canadians vs. Aquasox: Series Preview

Where's my glove? (image courtesy of Charlie Caskey)

Let’s be honest here. The C’s pulled off one of the great Houdini jobs of all time this season by somehow backing their way into the Northwest League playoffs. After finishing a game behind Everett in the first half with a healthy 22 and 16 record, Vancouver stumbled in the second half going 17 and […]


Finally, a Bit of C’larity

Sunday saw the Everett Aquasox do the C’s a huge favour by beating the Spokane Indians 3-2 and ensure themselves the second half flag to go with their first half crown. The result means that the second playoff spot will come down to the best overall record. By holding the tiebreaker, the Canadians were, once […]


C’s do Two Steps Forward, One Back Routine

After showing signs of life by winning the last two games against Salem-Keizer to take the five game series, Vancouver headed out for their penultimate road trip of the season and laid a frog’s egg. A 10-2 soaking by the Everett Aqua-Sox saw the C’s fall back out of the North division lead after only […]


Canadians Hunt the Aquasox

After wrapping up their five game set with a loss to the the Boise Hawks on Sunday, the C’s travel down the I-5 for a crucial three game set with the North division leading Everett Aquasox. With just eight games remaining in the first half, the next few nights could go a very long way […]


Canadians Wear Out the Aquasox

The Canadians took the rubber match of their three game set with Everett Wednesday night. The seven runs scored by the C’s took the total over the final two games of the series to eighteen. This despite leaving thirteen on base both nights. Thirty hits over two games sounds amazing, but Vancouver hits a ton […]


#BeatBoise is Trending

repeat?

The Northwest League final kicks off tonight with Your Vancouver Canadians hosting the Beasts from Boise.  Based on the second half of the season, these are the two best teams in the league, having virtually identical records in wrapping up the second half flag.  I don’t have a ton of time to do any systematic […]


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 […]


Roberto Osuna – Not a Bad Debut

Get it done Boss Man

I wrote in my last post that I was a bit excited about Vancouver getting Roberto Osuna .  Needless to say, he didn’t disappoint with his first start.  Over 5 innings of work, Osuna faced 19 batters, whiffing 13 of them.  You almost have to read that twice to let it sink in.  Predictably, the performance […]
