Post of the Week – June 11 through June 17

Recognizing the very best post of the week from our message board community of thousands of Cardinals fans the world over. The winner of this recognition receives a free four-week subscription to and all the other fine sites in the network.

The members of the Cardinal Nation continued their analysis of the draft, the minors and the major league club on our Cardinals message board this past week. As always, this article calls out the best of the best - our "Post of the Week".

fpslackers started a thread called "Cards Minor League Depth Chart". That very self-explanatory title was on a article that provided a player ranking by position. That led to a long and interesting discussion on the board.

On the second page of the long-running thread and last week's winner "The Long Wait", Frank22 provided a very insightful analysis of the members of the Palm Beach rotation.

The top post this week is buried on page four of a mega-thread named "Official Trade/Trade Rumor Post". As the discussion strayed from its original focus, reader greenback44 offered up an excellent historical analysis of Jason Marquis' comparables on the mound.

As a result, I am pleased to announce that greenback44 is our weekly winner for June 11 through June 17.

Thank you for your many fine contributions to our community, greenback44, and keep making these informative posts. And as always, congratulations to all of last week's honorable mentions.

In recognition, greenback44 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!
