Roster Crunch Squeezes Former Vancouver Canadians

With the four Blue Jay full season affiliates set to officially announce their rosters today, the last week has seen a flurry of activity as the organization trims numbers in an effort to get their teams down to size. Of those released, many have ties to the Canadians, playing big roles in the current run […]


Opening Day for Ex C’s

In Javier we trust

As I mentioned in my last post, all four of the Jays full-season minor league franchises kicked off their 2013 season Thursday night.  Three of the four of them got off to winning starts.  But, for the farm, more often than not, the process is more important than the results.  Team success at these levels […]


Let’s Get Going!

Nessy ups and fires

With Thursday representing opening day for the Jays full-season minor league franchises, the rosters were set early this week.  Without going into too much detail, or looking back at all my predictions (an exercise that would only serve to confirm how little I know), a quick glance at the Lansing and Dunedin teams is in […]


2012 Pitching Review – The Starters

I’m leaving this a bit late, with full season leagues starting on the 4th of April (Lansing’s at least), but after reviewing all the players that manned the eight outfield positions for the C’s in 2012, I’d be remiss not to do the same for the pitchers.  Remiss, not only because it simply wouldn’t be […]


2012 Vancover Canadians Top 10 Prospects

2012 Vancover Canadians Top 10 Prospects

I ran across this article the other day in Baseball America which breaks down (for subscribers at least, of which I am not one) the top twenty prospects in the Northwest League.  The free article does mention that there were quite a few players who may have made the list if eligible.  I can’t find […]


#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 […]


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 […]


Tonight is Immense

Get it done Boss Man

And I don’t use words like Immense or Massive lightly.  This is actually a bit of a running joke, as I use those words all the time.  Even in situations that don’t actually merit them. But, for the C’s, tonight is rather Massive.  They are a half game back of the Eugene Emeralds who finish […]


More?

He's finally here

Well, I wrote the Replacements thinking that may be the end of the new players the C’s would see as they make a push towards the 2nd half title.  Ummm, I was wrong.  I missed the news, and am a bit late talking about it, as was in the middle of a marathon drive to […]


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 […]


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 vs Eugene Emeralds

Vancouver Canadians vs Eugene Emeralds

A heartbreaker last night.  After a run of, let’s be honest, not great starts from the Canadians staff, Javier Avendano stopped the bleeding somewhat.  His line doesn’t look overly attractive, but after a few beers, anything is going to look good, and the 1 ER over 5 innings put the C’s in a position to win. […]


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. […]


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 […]
