Happy Draft Day!

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 […]

With the full season Blue Jay affiliates at, or just finishing, their all-star breaks the Toronto brass got to work re-shuffling the deck in terms of the teams rosters.  Some of the moves are worth shouting about while others are mainly to fill spots vacated by those we are shouting about.  Whatever they may be, […]


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 […]

Before I get into the baseball guts of this post, let me preface it by saying the weather in Vancouver has finally turned.  So, I’ll be honest, today’s charting was marred somewhat by a few Asahi Super Pops (make sure I tell you some time about the Asahi commercial I was in, that was fun) […]


Vancouver Canadians news and notes

Classic Pic

The C’s put a bit of a damper on Salem-Keizer’s 4th of July party by burning the Volcanoes (see what i did there) 8-2.  Kellen Sweeney took the C of the day, reaching base 3 times, including his first long ball of the season.  Kellen was one of my prospects to watch at the start […]
