Happy Draft Day!

Chase chats up some locals (image courtesy of Charlie Caskey)

Let’s be honest, I’m probably not going to get this post finished today (update, I’m only a day late!), making the immediacy of the title somewhat redundant but hey, at least I’m trying right!  For Blue Jays fans, this year’s edition of the annual MLB draft doesn’t contain the edge of your seat excitement that […]


A Winter of Content

Prospect junkies were apoplectic when big Noah was included in Dickey deal

I have stated throughout this winter that content would be a bit light when discussing the Vancouver Canadians.  However, when taking into consideration the parent team, it has been a thousand Christmases wrapped into one.  For two reasons.  Similar to the British winter of discontent, I thought we were in for a long bleak winter […]


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 […]


C’s News and Notes

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 […]


The Trade – Does it Affect Your Van Cs

The Trade – Does it Affect Your Van Cs

I’ve been meaning to write a bit about the 10 player mega/average/meh (depending on who you read) swap that AA pulled off with Houston, but as usual, life has somehow intervened.  I won’t trot out the same tired excuses of new baby, my own mediocre sporting endeavours, etc etc but just try and write the […]


A Bus Ride to Boise

A Bus Ride to Boise

The C’s have the day off today, which I should temper by saying their day off consists of a 14 hour bus ride to Boise, Idaho where  tomorrow they’ll open up a 5 game set with Boise Hawks.  Boise are the short season affiliate of the Chicago Cubs so am guessing they have zero prospects […]
