Monday is Blue Jays Minor League Moving Day

After finishing their day game Sunday, and with an off day Monday, I’m fairly certain the Blue Jay players were seen on the town last night.  Thankfully, with no game today, we don’t have to be given the classic ‘flu like symptoms’ excuse for why so-and-so is out of the lineup.  Management didn’t have time […]


Notes From Extended Spring Training: Part One

If you follow me on twitter (and if you don’t, you really should) you’ll have picked up on fact I have cultivated a ‘source’ down at the Blue Jays extended spring training camp. Getting insight into what goes on at extended has long been a goal of mine, especially in regards to the Vancouver Canadians, […]


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 […]


Vancouver Canadians Take One for Road

The Canadians got their best of three Northwest League North division finals series off to a flying start with a 5-1 win over the visiting Everett Aquasox. The C’s rode some very good pitching, the key to the series as per my preview, and an outer space inspired sixth inning rally for the victory. The […]


Big Weekend for the Vancouver Canadians

Thursday night’s series finale in Everett encapsulated the Canadians season. After getting a great start from Colton Turner and a clutch two RBI double from the slumping Justin Atkinson, the C’s turned the ball over to closer Chuck Ghysels in the ninth. Four batters later, Vancouver was back on the bus heading up the I-5 […]


C’s do Two Steps Forward, One Back Routine

After showing signs of life by winning the last two games against Salem-Keizer to take the five game series, Vancouver headed out for their penultimate road trip of the season and laid a frog’s egg. A 10-2 soaking by the Everett Aqua-Sox saw the C’s fall back out of the North division lead after only […]


Beaten But Not Broken in Boise

The Vancouver Canadians did not really come flying out of the traps following their all-star game heroics, losing four straight in Idaho before salvaging the fifth and final game of the series. Fortunately for the C’s, the south division teams did a number on the entirety of the North Division, especially Everett, so Vancouver currently […]


Scouting the New Canadians Faces

Writing about the C’s, and any short-season minor league franchise for that matter, can be difficult at times. Especially early in the year, post-draft, when player movement seems to be a daily occurrence. Despite the scrambling necessary to keep up with an ever changing roster, it does make for some excitement. Who wouldn’t want to […]


I Finally get my Baseball Fix

The Canadians return from their longest trip of the season, an eight day marathon (one of two on the season) today for a six game homestand, before, once again, leaving us baseball addicts in the lurch. Those who are of age probably won’t mind the next trip though, as it’s to the Northwest League’s newest […]
