Cards Post of the Week – June 8 through 14

Recognizing the very best post of the past week from our message board community of thousands of St. Louis Cardinals fans the world over. "baseballatc" is our 139th 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 14.

It is rather unusual, but this week, all four recognized posts led off new threads. The first was originated by "PadsFS", who reviewed the current medical progress of 11 injured Cardinals pitchers. The thread is called "Cardinals Pitching Staff – As of June 9th".

Always a source for interesting posts, "BeauHeart" took it upon himself to initiate a place where Cardinals draftees considering signing with the club could go to get pertinent information about the organization in the thread "unofficial help thread for unsigned draftees".

"SkinnyPimp" began the thread entitled "My Semi-Regular Rant at ESPN", in which factual errors about the Cardinals made by national broadcasters were pointed out and skewered.

"Minor League Middle Infield Thoughts" is the subject of the post by "baseballatc". A very thorough analysis of the middle infielders currently in the Cardinals system as well as ones drafted this year and even some potential outfielders who might be converted were offered.

In recognition of that post, "baseballatc" is our 139th winner of the "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!
