Cards Post of the Week – Nov. 4 through 10

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.

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.

This article covers the week ending Saturday, November 10 – almost. You see, last week, on Halloween, while I was out making scary, I missed one of the strongest posts in recent weeks. Fortunately, other readers didn't miss this fine contribution from "SoonerinNC" and brought it to my attention. .

The good news is that it also overshadowed the posts from the following week, too. So, I am pleased to correct the oversight and award the Post of the Week to "SoonerinNC" for starting the thread entitled "Thoughts about the draft".

There, Sooner analyzed six years of drafts from 1985 though 1990 and compared the Cardinals' results with those of all of MLB. Some very interesting conclusions were offered.

Another busy thread was called "Miguel Cabrera for Colby Rasmus??". On pages three and four, there were notable posts by regulars "1964Cards", "easton714" and "BW23", discussing trade options far beyond the one that inspired the thread.

Also, "cards13" joined thread-starter "BW23" among those wondering "What is Molina worth? Despite the general manager labeling the catcher as "untouchable", some disagree.

As an aside, please remember that whenever you read a notable post from a member of the community, call it out on the stickeyed "Post of the Week" thread at the top of the message board. That way, I will be sure to take it into account in this process.

For the post noted above, "SoonerinNC" is our latest winner of the "Post of the Week" award. In recognition, "SoonerinNC" 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!
