After some extended, sometimes heated, negoatiotions with Greg ‘Podcast Killah’ Balloch, we finally got the band back together and hit the studio for the long-awaited 20th show edition of the YourVanCs Podcast. Of course, for readers of this site, that may be a bit of a letdown as I advertised the last edition as the […]


Blue Jays Minor League Leaders by WAR

Catchers get all the positional love

As I furiously plough through my Blue Jays top 30 prospect list (note: irony) I always try to take a bit of time to see what others are writing about the Jays.  Fangraphs is the last major publication to drop their Jays list but, recently, resident metric maverick Carson Cistulli undertook an exercise where he attempted […]


Roberto Osuna Versus the Scorpions

Get it done Boss Man

Roberto Osuna made his second appearance for the Mesa Solar Sox this past Tuesday.  Facing the infamous Scottsdale Scorpions, Osuna looked to improve on his first outing in the Arizona Fall League, when he got knocked around a bit. Something I talked about here. Looking at the below line and resultant stats, things didn’t seem […]


Roberto Osuna Makes AFL Debut

For some reason I had it in my head that Thursdays Mesa Solar Sox’ Arizona Fall League game was rained out.  So was a bit behind the curve checking out what the Blue Jays farmhands on display had done.  When I did get around to it, it was a bit disappointing.  As I mentioned in my […]


Fall League? You Want to Talk About Fall League??!

Seriously, we really are talking playoffs

Well, since the Blue Jays haven’t made the playoffs in many people’s lifetime then ya, let’s talk Arizona Fall League.  For those of us (i.e. me) who are eternal optimists, the Jays future looks rosy and two potential pieces of that future will be suiting up for the Mesa Solar Sox over the next six […]


Spokane, We Hardly Know Ya

Remember this?  (courtesy of Charlie Caskey)

The title of this post is, of course, a bit of a non sequitur, as the Vancouver Canadians and Spokane Indians know each other all too well. Having battled throughout the first half only to come up all even, the C’s were able to clinch the second half flag at home over their North Division […]


YourVanCs “Weekly” – Episode 9

Interviewing the Rock

After a three week break (far too long and shame on us) Greg and I get back together to discuss the everything Blue Jays. With the focus, of course, on the Vancouver Canadians.  With so much movement within the system of late (Greg actually had to put together a list!) we had plenty to talk […]


Your Van Cs Weekly – Episode 6

Pentecost hits a sac fly in his first C's AB

When Greg and I set out to do a ‘weekly’ podcast looking at the Vancouver Canadians, Andrew Stoeten of Drunk Jays Fans fame commented that you should be careful about what promises you make.  Getting a weekly podcast up, especially during the summer months, when baseball is in full swing and holidays sometimes take priority […]
