Blue Jays Minor League Review – Young Stars on Rise

Fields in full flight

As many of you are aware, mainly because I keep banging on about it, three weeks of sampling basically as much English beer (i.e. San Miguel and Stella) as possible meant my ability to write about baseball was curtailed.  Doesn’t mean I wasn’t doing my research though.  In fact, during a forced shopping trip with […]


The Blue Jays Top 30: Future Vancouver Canadians

Although, obviously, I’ve fallen short of my stated goal of finishing off my Toronto Blue Jays top 30 prospect list prior to this past Friday’s Vancouver Canadians hot stove luncheon, I’m still going to bust my hump to get the list done.  The prospects are going to be broken into three manageable chunks of 10 players a […]


Vancouver Canadians Bullpen Bonanza

The C's bullpen has been very good as of late

I’m going to admit something here.  During my recent piece where I previewed the upcoming Northwest League North Division final between the Vancouver Canadians and Spokane Indians I spoke false twice.  Not quite lies.  Let’s call them half truths.  I’m using this forum to rectify my mistakes as well as provide a bit of statistical […]


Canadians Musings

Ryan McBroom and Max Pentecost celebrate a home run

I’m currently working on a ‘Is Franklin Barreto the NWL MVP?’ post and quite frankly it’s not going to well.  So let’s put that on the backburner of my battered brain and discuss a few topics that I’ve been kicking around a bit lately. I’ve been thinking more about the Rowdy Tellez promotion to Lansing […]


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 […]


Tellez to…….Lansing!

After Tuesdays Vancouver Canadians game I managed to catch up with C’s manager John Schneider.  I asked him three questions, two of which were of the ‘hypothetical’ variety.  Turns out both of them were actually quite prescient. Talking promotions with Vancouver’s coaches is always a bit hypothetical.  I get the impression they don’t know about […]


The MLB Draft and Future Vancouver Canadians

The roster begins to take shape (image courtesy of Charlie Caskey)

The annual MiLB (and hopefully, eventually MLB) roster filler exercise that is the MLB draft finished up on Saturday with rounds 11 through 40.  When he was in Vancouver for the Canadians hotstove luncheon, Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos referred to day three as ‘Vancouver Canadians’ day, where they look to get some college players to […]


Canadians Gonna Get Rowdy?

During my recent piece discussing what prospects the Vancouver Canadians would be getting this summer, I made the cardinal mistake (habitual for me really) of not thinking things through. Specifically, when mulling over who might start in Bluefield before joining Vancouver at some point during the season, I flippantly threw out the line ‘there’s not […]


Toronto Blue Jays 2013 Draft – Better Late Than Never

After whalloping the Everett WaterSox in game one of their crucial three game set, the C’s send 2013 25th rounder, and future WWE star, Scott Silverstein to the bump tonight versus rehabbing Mariners pitcher Stephen Pryor. A reliever by trade, this will be Pryor’s first appearance back from a lat injury so would have thought […]
