Cards Post of the Week – Jan. 20 through 26

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, January 26.

"DwaininAztec" offered a detailed, optimistic view of the potential of the Cardinals 2008 line up player by player in the thread entitled "Goold: Cards' new-look lineup".

"Jumpin´ Jeff and player movement" is a thread started by "CariocaCardinal" that took a look back at the actions from Cardinals management last season in moving players up in the farm system as well as forecasted similar action in 2008.

We are nearing the end of our top 15 Cardinals teams of all time countdown. Each article has a daily thread on the board to discuss and debate that day's selection. As the "1964 team" was called out at number 10, both "Sawatski" and "nmc79" each had notable and interesting observations.

In fact, this week, the countdown yielded our clear winner of the "Post of the Week" award, as "nmc79" also made great posts on both the "1968 (#8)" and "2004 (#5)" threads. In recognition of all three, "nmc79" 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!
