Post of the Week – April 9 through April 15

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

With the regular season underway not without controversy, there was plenty to talk about this week around the Cardinal Nation and on our message board, too. This is all about the selection of the best of the best - our "Post of the Week".

Last week's winner, KylMss, did not rest on his laurels. In a thread called "Trades we should make", KylMss offered a view of the Cardinals' weaknesses along with some improvement ideas, as well as timing suggestions. "Trades we should make".

There were 26 posts on the "Cubs vs. Cards" thread, which started off as name-calling, but ended strongly, thanks to one of our bests. AutobodyCAD provided a balanced assessment of a hard-fought series. "Cubs vs. Cards".

Good advice for Cardinals fans this past week was: "Everyone take a deep breath…", offered up by board regular SkinnyPimp. While he describes several reasons to stay away from the message board, he does a great job of putting the first few games into perspective. "Everyone take a deep breath…".

Bokonon2 offered up short capsule reviews of every Cardinals draft class since 2000 in the thread called "Player Development". "Player Development".

A thread entitled "No, Chicken Little, the Sky's Not Falling" drove 28 posts, including at least two notable ones. rbdrdbrd offered three logical reasons the Cubs series wasn't all bad, while bodomchild offered excellent observations about several aspects of the 2006 team looking back and forward. " No, Chicken Little, the Sky's Not Falling".

In a tough call, I am pleased to announce that bodomchild is our weekly winner for April 9 through April 15.

Thank you for your contributions to our community, bodomchild, and please keep making these fine posts. And, congratulations to all of last week's honorable mentions.

In recognition, bodomchild wins a free four-week subscription to stlcardinals.scout.com and all the other great sites in the Scout.com network.

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