Post of the Week – March 19 through March 25

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

As always, there were a number of thoughtful and informative contenders for this week's "Post of the Week" from our fine message board.

A thread called "that other left fielder" led to a long discussion that has elicited almost 40 responses and over 1100 views – a very popular topic. One post that stood out was written by a long-term contributor, greenback44, visible on page two. He introduces the idea of equivalent averages to help answer the question what an MLB average corner outfielder is here: " that other left fielder".

rbdrdbrd offered an interesting contrast in comparing position players versus pitchers in the thread "Journell Released".

Two of the other finalists this week are very familiar, too. They began and extended a very interesting discussion about the Cardinals roster in 2007. The two posters of special note are fpslackers and KCardinal here, "2007".

What this board and site stands for more than about anything is a commitment to the Cardinals of the future – the minor leaguers. An excellent analysis overlooked by many, including yours truly initially, was posted by Bokonon2 on March 20. In it, he offered strengths, weaknesses and a prognosis for four top corner outfield prospects, Chris Duncan, John Gall, Nick Stavinoha and Cody Haerther.

As a result, I am pleased to announce Bokonon2 as our weekly winner for March 19 through March 25 for the thread "Four corners".

Thank you for your contributions to our community, Bokonon2, and please keep making these fine observations. And, congratulations to last week's honorable mention posters.

In recognition, Bokonon2 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!
