Cards Post of the Week: March 30 thru April 5

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 St. Louis 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, April 5.

Each game day, there are active threads on our board to discuss the current major and minor league games. Also, interesting information on a broader level of interest often pops up. Such was the case when at the top of page six of the 4/5 MLB thread, "BicycleMike" reported on a shaky Kip Wells outing against Arizona: "Game Thread 04/05 St. Louis vs Washington".

"bccran" offered a summary of one day's minor league games and also listed the starting position player lineups for the four full-season affiliates here: "farm games on friday".

An ongoing concern in many corners of the The Cardinals Nation is what should be done by/with/about pitcher Anthony Reyes. In page four of the thread "What does Reyes have to do", "Cardsfan914" categorizes the various starting pitchers near or at the top of the system into four groups – hurt, replacements, AAA/bullpen and future.

The unlikely story of Rico Washington making the majors after 11 years in the minor leagues inspired "jmodene1" to develop an All Presidents-Named Cardinals Team in the thread looking at the season-opening roster: "It's official".

The long-awaited Ballpark Village in downtown St. Louis experienced a setback when the developer walked away. "LeftyGolden" offered a summary of the situation in the thread, "A view of Ballpark Village".

In recognition of that post, "LeftyGolden" is our winner of "Post of the Week". He collects a free four-week subscription extension to and all the other great sites in the network.

Next week, it can be you! So, keep posting!
