As we do each and every week here at stlcardinals.scout.com, we call out the best of the best - the "Post of the Week" from our Scout.com Cardinals message board, this time for the week ending Saturday, September 29.
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.
As the disappointing 2007 regular season wound down, a new thread was begun by "duckymedwick7" which allowed posters, whether long-timers or recent visitors, to share photographic information about themselves. Many have joined in to offer snapshots in the"picture thread: the birdhouse family album".
Most of the way down page six of the thread "Let's take a look at next year...", "stlcards5129" looks at the 2008 Cardinals payroll by player. The ensuing discussion was around what players might stay and what can be afforded next season.
"stlbbnut" began a thread entitled "Season taken into perspective" where the breadth and depth of the Cardinals' 2007 injuries were presented. At the bottom of that same page, "SoonerinNC" offered up a series of pragmatic explanations for some of what happened this season and why.
"SoonerinNC" made a second appearance on our top post list last week when starting a new thread entitled "How did we finish third". There, he shared some statistics on how little help Albert Pujols received this season from the middle of the order and the impact of giving up so many runs in some games while scoring so few in others.
As a result, "SoonerinNC" is our latest winner of the "Post of the Week" award. In recognition, "Sooner" collects a free four-week subscription to stlcardinals.scout.com and all the other great sites in the Scout.com network.
Next week, it can be you! So, keep posting!
