Post of the Week – January 22 - 28

Recognizing the very best post of the week from our message board community of thousands of Cardinals fans the world over.

As always, selecting this week's "Post of the Week" from our fine message board was a difficult task. Some of the best posts included the following:

- AllPraisePujols started an excellent thread on "Will our 2006 Pen be an upgrade or a downgrade from 2005" with an insightful analysis.

- On page two of the thread "Minor League Infielders", regular contributors Frank22 and bccran both registered some great points.

- A new poster, ReggieChant16, started a thread entitled "2006 Cardinals", where he provided a detailed analysis of the team and prospects for the upcoming season.

- Our thread "Edmonds last run with cards??" is up to almost 2400 views and among the close to 100 replies were at least three notables last week. They include SmartPig's and Jmodene1's next to one another on page five.

And finally, our winner. SkinnyPimp was selected because he had two posts making our "best of" list this past week. Skinny spiced up the Edmonds thread near the end of page five, where he made an excellent statistical comparison between Jim Edmonds and Bernie Williams.

In addition, Skinny gave us his "skinny" on Barry Bonds in the thread simply entitled "Bonds". As a result of his contributions, SkinnyPimp receives the nod as the Poster of the Week for Week 15, January 22 through 28.

SkinnyPimp joined the community back in 2002 and in that time has made over 800 posts and counting on the Scout boards, including almost 700 here with the Cardinals.

SkinnyPimp, please keep sharing these kinds of fine observations. Congratulations to you as well as to all of last week's honorable mention posters.

In recognition, SkinnyPimp wins a free four-week subscription to and all the other great sites in the network.

Next week, it can be you! So, keep posting!
