Post of the Week – July 16 through July 22

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.

As always, this article calls out the best of the best - the "Post of the Week" from our Cardinals message board.

Reader voteforkerry really enhanced a thread called "Mr. Looper" by providing reliever Braden Looper's stats based on the number of days of rest between appearances.

On page three of a thread called "Bigbie on Rehab with Swing", sport61201 provided a very passionate essay on "the human element", noting what would be lost without it in the game we know and love.

skinnypimp doesn't like ESPN's Joe Morgan and has plenty of good reasons for that. In the thread called "am i the only one laughing about whats on espn?", skinny provided a statistical comparison between the great Henry Aaron and perhaps the soon-to-be even greater Albert Pujols.

Reader SydneyDave broke down the Cardinals' and Braves' recent pitching drafts on page two of the thread called "What will it take for larussa / duncan?".

The top post this week is on page two of the thread simply named "Trade Idea". irrigator5 includes a thorough analysis of the various trade commodities available to Walt Jocketty in his attempts to improve the big club.

I am pleased to announce that irrigator5 is our weekly winner for July 16 through July 22.

Thank you for your contributions to our community, irrigator5 and keep making these informative posts. And as always, congratulations to all of last week's honorable mentions.

In recognition, irrigator5 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!
