Talking about baseball is what I love to do and I got the opportunity to do just that Thursday night on TSN 1040. Vancouver Canadians play-by-play broadcaster Rob Fai invited me to the TSN 1040 studio to talk about the Blue Jays, the C’s and all things baseball for Vancouver Canadians Game Day which is now into its 10th season.
A couple of 2014 Vancouver Canadians were back together again briefly. 2013-2014 C’s left-hander Jairo Labourt and shortstop Franklin Barreto were reunited when the Oakland Athletics claimed Labourt earlier this spring but Labourt returned to the Detroit Tigers on a minor league deal.
A couple of former Vancouver Canadians pitchers who played a role in their first two Northwest League championships decided to call it a career over the off-season. 2011 righthander Blake McFarland and 2012 righty Wil Browning made the difficult decision to pursue other ventures.
