Post of the Week – April 15 through April 21

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

As we do each and every week here at, we call out the best of the best - the "Post of the Week" from our Cardinals message board, this time for the week ending Saturday, April 21.

Here is the link to our new Message Board.

A number of our recent winners have continued to shine, among many others.

Last week's winner, "CariocaCardinal", extends a nice run of informative posts, this time initiating a thread called "Why do the Cards have no top 3rd Baseman prospects?". Fifteen others have added their thoughts and three hundred more have read.

"Edmonds" is a thread where our winner two weeks ago, "C2kSeven", offered up an explanation for the Cardinals current problems that is more complex and plausible than blaming any one player, including the team's centerfielder.

"baseballatc", who won three weeks ago, asked the question, "Cardinals vs. Black Magic?". The focus is possible reasons for the Cardinals rough start, with a bit of fun mixed in for good measure.

The title of the thread called "We won the WS driving a 1995 Ford Escort" pretty much says it all. "fmctaggart" opened the discussion, concerned with the Cardinals perceived low-budget team building and "LeftyGolden" offered a different perspective.

In a close contest between these last two, our winner this week is "fmctaggart", as in starting the thread, a bit of humor was offered to go along with the concern. "fmctaggart" collects a free four-week subscription to and all the other great sites in the network.

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