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 […]


Blue Jays Minor League Review – Movers, Makers, Surprisers

Tim Locastro gets hit by a pitch...no, wait, takes a pitch!

After focusing my last minor league review piece on the pitching side of the ledger, specifically four arms, I promised to use this platform to talk hitting.  Something I was quite excited about, since, well, for the first time in awhile there are a few hitters in the Jays system to be excited about. Before […]


Blue Jays Minor League Review – May Flowers

Wouldn't Jeff Hoffman look good in C's red and black?

I’m not exactly certain what trajectory a lead balloon will take if dropped from a higher place, say CN Tower for example, but I’m willing to guess it plummets.  Quickly.  Similar to my feelings on the Blue Jays season.  Of course, I’m a raging optimist, and at a mere two games  under .500 heading into […]


Vancouver Canadians Countdown

I was recently mulling over the idea of trying to code a countdown clock on to my site so that any visitors (hi mom) were reminded of how close we are to the opening of the Threepeat in Thirteen season. When looking at the C’s official site to confirm the start date though, I noticed […]


Vancouver Canadians 2012 Shortstops

Stop!!

Next on our 2012 positional review is shortstop.  Admittedly, I thought it was going to be difficult to do a second basemen post, and believed I would have to add together with short to make a middle infield piece.  After discussing three different second sackers though, I now realize that the shortfall of names will […]


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 […]


The Jays Org is Active

Actually, that beard is getting better

There’s been a ton of activity of late throughout Toronto’s organizational rungs and the with the big club itself.  Unfortunately, not all the movements were by design.  The injuries continue to pile up, both with the Jays and their minor league playing staff.  So, let’s save talking about JP Arencibia’s broken hand until the end […]


Jesse Hernandez: You Beauty

Umm, what's it like up there?

This post will be written (at least at the start) more from a ‘fan’ perspective than from my recently jaundiced ‘I want to be a scout’s’ eyes.  So, let’s celebrate Jesse Hernandez.  As I’ve mentioned previously, we here at YourVanCs have a bit of a soft spot for Jesse after he started and won the […]


Vancouver Canadians Stats

Classic Pic

I’ve played around with the stats category a bit.  Previously I took what milb.com provided and plugged the numbers into my own spreadsheet with hacked formulas for advanced stats such as wOBA and WRC+.  They were a bit hacky as milb.com doesn’t provide all the necessary inputs for certain formulas so concessions needed to be […]


First trip to the Nat.

Ben White

I made my first foray to the Nat today, taking in one of the famous Nooners (at 1:05) at the Nat.  Of course, the allure of these nooners is the idea of sitting in the sun, drinking beer, watching baseball.  The first part of that equation is very hit and miss in Vancouver.  Today was […]
