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 […]


Just Another Massive Monday – Canadians Need One More Win

Apologies for the verbose title, but it really is rather massive isn’t it? Sunday saw the Canadians come up big with a clutch 4-2 win over the Boise Hawks in game two of their three game Northwest League final. So, after seventy-six regular season games and four more in the playoffs, it all boils down […]


To Win Three, C’s Need Two at Home

This doesn’t get old does it? After a pretty tragic second half where even I was starting to doubt the Canadians ability to ThreePeat in ’13, the C’s return to the Nat Sunday with the opportunity to become only the third team in Northwest League history to win three titles in a row. There’s some […]


Drayton Valley’s Dawson Hits D.L.

After Saturday night’s disaster against Spokane, you’d be hard pressed to come up with a scenario how things could get any worse. Well, how’s this for a start? Drayton Valley’s own Shane Dawson has been placed on the disabled list and will be shut down for the rest of the season. That stinks. The Alberta […]


Vancouver Canadians are not Perfect

This is just a nice shot (courtesy of the vancouversun.com)

After getting outhit Friday night, the Canadians did the bulk of the hitting last night. Unfortunately, like last Friday, the team with the most hits didn’t come out with the win. Despite the loss, there were a lot of positives to take from Saturday’s game. Kyle Anderson, a non-drafted free-agent, is one of several returnees […]


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 […]


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 Prospecting – Who’s on their way to the C’s?

Vancouver Canadians Prospecting – Who’s on their way to the C’s?

After mentioning in my last post that Kyle Anderson had been promoted to the C’s from the GCL Jays I happened upon a note that Philip Brua had been sent from Vancouver to Lansing.  Philip was a C’s returnee so good to see him earn a promotion after a good start to this season.  Brua […]


Happy Canada Day Part 1

Happy Canada Day Part 1

As I watch the Jays offence use the Angels starter Richards as their personal scratching post I do have to marvel at how resilient Toronto has been this season.  With the addition of a second wildcard, expectations from the fan base got a bit heady, but realistically, for them to contend for any sort of […]
