Cards Post of the Week – July 22 through 28

Recognizing the very best post of the past 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, July 28.

Here is the link to the Message Boards, of which there are several – for fantasy players, insider information for subscribers, general topics, non-Cardinals sports and more.

One of the most-watched and posted thread last week was called simply "The Deadline". Six pages and over 100 posts of interesting banter exists on whether the Cardinals should be sellers, stand pat or something in between.

Last week's winner, "Oquendo11" made a fine post on page seven of the game log thread for the July 26th game here. The noteworthy post does an excellent job of calmly and clearly reminding us that we have no idea what general manager Walt Jocketty's trade plans are, before or likely even after the July 31 trade deadline passes.

"prospectsRus" began a new thread, offering up "Cardinals top 12 prospects @ Midseason with MLB Comp". Meaning this poster's best prospects were listed with Major Leaguers identified most comparable to their style of play. "fewgoodcards" added an especially good post with another perspective on the comps for the players named and why they were offered.

As a result, "fewgoodcards" is our weekly winner of the "Post of the Week". "fewgoodcards" 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!
