Cards Post of the Week – August 5 thru 11

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, August 11.

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.

Poster "waltdub" initiated a thread about the "Midwest League and FSL as tough hitters leagues". The ensuing discussion about ease or difficulty of hitting and pitching in certain locales was most interesting.

"BeauHeart" opened a thread on "07 draft update" and followed up his original post with an excellent recap of all players drafted and playing with possible potential offered up for discussion.

Earlier in the week, "redbirdinsight" created a detailed learning on how to watch pitchers pitch and what can be learned by doing so in this thread, "Fastball and the importance of Location". An added bonus is that this was presented in the context of several Cardinals pitching prospects.

As a result of this extraordinary post, "redbirdinsight" is our weekly winner of the "Post of the Week". "redbirdinsight" 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!
