Cards Post of the Week – April 6 through 12

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 12.

On page one of the thread called "Updated Predictions/Expectations", reader "Cardsfan914" took a look at Rick Ankiel's Cardinals stats and how they may have been affected by the news of his past purchase of Human Growth Hormone.

"SydneyDave" looked at Houston's drafts and compared them to the Cardinals on page one of the thread "Horse Trading Astros".

"Upgrading the 2008 squad" is something "thejager" and many others would like to see. Starting this new thread, "thejager" broke down the Cardinals needs at several key positions and looked at the roster impact, too.

Eyewitness reports of Cardinals minor league games are a staple of our message board. This past week, "waltdub" caught a doubleheader and offered a very informative view of the Quad Cities club on page two of the daily "Minor League Game Thread 04/09".

In recognition of that post, "waltdub" 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!
