Cards Post of the Week – June 1 through 7

Recognizing the very best post of the past week from our message board community of thousands of St. Louis Cardinals fans the world over. "ambill10" is our 138th weekly winner!

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, June 7.

"philskill" shared a very interesting analysis as to why the Chicago Cubs' lead in the National League Central Division over the Cardinals will evaporate. The thread is called "Series win loss analysis (Why stl is more dangerous than Chi)".

A relatively-new poster on the board, "StlCards93", recently made a trek to Memphis and shared a detailed scouting report on Jaime Garcia and a number of other players on the thread, "Observations of todays game Memphis @ Albuquerque 6/3/08".

Near the bottom of page one of the thread entitled, "Lots of posts on Cards catching the Cubs", "ambill10" looked at the actual results of five top Cubs prospects that have received a lot of ink, but delivered little results so far in the majors.

The topic of the week in all of baseball has been the 2008 First-Year Player Draft. The reality is that our board has been discussing the draft for months now. There has been a special thread devoted to the subject, which has grown to 39 pages and remains pinned to the top of the page. It is appropriately titled, "Official Draft Thread".

With three related posts, one on page 37 and two more on page 38, "ambill10" kept a running list of the Cardinals draftees in a table as well as provided breakdowns by school year and positions. Make sure you check them out.

In recognition of four solid posts, "ambill10" is our 138th winner of the "Post of the Week" recognition. 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!
