YourVanCs Monthly (?) – Episode 16

Franklin Barreto scores one of his league leading 65 runs

Last night, Greg and I managed to shake off the podcast cobwebs, coming together for the first Your Van C’s Weekly of 2015. We were lucky to be joined by former pro scout and current MLB Pipeline contributor and Bernie’s Blogger Bernie Pleskoff. The topics covered are both numerous and varied so is probably just easier […]


Blue Jays Trade Canadian’s MVP Franklin Barreto

Franklin Barreto scores one of his league leading 65 runs

The Toronto Blue Jays pulled off a massive trade on Friday.  One that included three of their farmhands, including the best outfield player I’ve seen in Vancouver, Franklin Barreto.  It’s funny, I’ve been having some twitter banter recently with some regular correspondents.  Comments such as ‘procrastinator’ have been used to describe my inability to get […]

C’s News and Notes

I forgot to mention that McFarland is an ex-C

Aug. 9: OF Dwight Smith, Jr., assigned to Vancouver Canadians (Short-A) from Bluefield Blue Jays (Rookie-APP). #bluejays — Blue Jays Moves (@BlueJaysMoves) August 9, 2012 I originally pushed for Dwight’s promotion here.  Now, the […]


Vancouver Canadians news and notes

Classic Pic

The C’s put a bit of a damper on Salem-Keizer’s 4th of July party by burning the Volcanoes (see what i did there) 8-2.  Kellen Sweeney took the C of the day, reaching base 3 times, including his first long ball of the season.  Kellen was one of my prospects to watch at the start […]
