Blue Jays Minor League Musings

Long time readers of this blog (would like to say ‘Hi Mom’ here, but think she’s given up on this site) know I have a fascination with Blue Jays left-handed pitching prospect Daniel Norris.  My first post was a questioning his whereabouts and why he wasn’t in Vancouver.  Well, he did get to Vancouver eventually, […]


Canadians vs. Aquasox: Series Preview

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.

I’m a bit late to the party, but still wanted to get a few thoughts down regarding the release of the Canadians roster at Wednesday’s media day prior to tonight’s season opener. I have to admit, I went into media day a bit wide eyed, it being my first rodeo, so some of the questions […]
