YourVanCs “Weekly” – Episode 11

Mike Reeves looks to get another starter ready

I could say all sorts of things to hype the first Your Van Cs podcast in a month but let’s just run a quote about 2014 Vancouver Canadian Miguel Castro from our excellent guest and Blue Jays minor league catcher Mike Reeves: “I’ll just say this about Castro, he’s the real deal. Trust me, trust […]


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 […]


The Highs and Lows of the Canadians

When I wrote my six stats to beat Tri-City piece yesterday, I focused mainly on the C’s edge in the power department, starting pitching, and in shutting down the running game. There were secondary mentions of the bullpen and atmosphere at the Nat. After only one game in this crucial six gamer with the Dust […]


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 […]


The Canadians Versus the Volcano

There truly is no rest for the defeated. After falling to Everett in the decider of their three game series, the Canadians were right back at the Nat with five against the South division leading Salem-Keizer Volcanos. To add more to the overall malaise, Thursday’s game wasn’t decided until the twelfth inning when the C’s […]


Two for the Road

With the Canadians early-season roster in constant flux I have found myself writing quite a bit on the new faces arriving in Vancouver and some of players who may very well make their way up over time. Of course, the roster cannot expand exponentially. Some of the current players will need to make way. After […]


Mother Nature Snaps Canadians Streak

I suppose it was going to have to be snapped somehow. Since Salem-Keizer couldn’t do it on their own accord, they needed to call in some re-inforcements. Mother nature was hired and delivered the requisite amount of rain to finish Sunday’s game after five innings. It just so happened that in the top of the […]


A Walking Start

This has been a pet peeve of mine for some time now, so excuse my opening paragraph rant. I just do not understand Team 1410. The local, and only ‘all sports network’ has an annoying habit of syndicating U.S. talk shows over broadcasting live sporting events. For me, I couldn’t believe ANYONE would want to […]
