Post of the Week – Sept. 24 through Sept. 30

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, this time for the week ending Saturday, September 30.

Some of our posters last week were relatively new to the community and seemed to be looking for senseless arguments. Sometimes they found them. But, as usual, there were plenty of threads focused on relevant and interesting baseball subjects. Several of the many are noted here.

Our winner this week, "bicyclemike", scored a daily double, registering in both the quality and quantity departments. The first post that caught my, and other readers', eyes was simply entitled "The Positive", a well-balanced comparison of the past and present.

Bikemike's second post was to start a new thread called "Is there a hero in red and navy???". Hundreds of people read it and twenty other readers saw fit to offer their own thoughts about the Cardinals' legacy of heroes.

This week's honorable mention posters include last week's winner, BeauHeart, who originated a thread "Pholds versus Phactors". There, Beau offered up some very telling comparisons between first and second half contributors.

Reader LeftyGolden performed a valuable service to the community as he laid out the myriad playoff scenario possibilities clearly in the thread called "Scenarios for the next 5 days". Others added additional combinations and permutations in this complex mix.

In recognition of several very fine posts, bicyclemike 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!
