Cards Message Board Post of the Week: 6/21/08

Recognizing the very best post of the past week from our message board community of thousands of St. Louis Cardinals fans the world over. "Waltdub" is our 140th 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 21.

Perhaps it is because our regular message board post "bird dog" UConnCard, aka Leonda Markee is on vacation. Perhaps it is because I am busy in Boston, but whatever the reason, I had trouble picking out notable contenders for the one that will be crowned our 140th weekly winner.

One other thread of some interest is an odd one. It is sort of like a sandwich. The start was a rant, followed by some good discussion about Colby Rasmus before digressing into posters giving each other unsolicited advice. So, if you do look at the six pages, you will have to get past the bread to find the meat. "When do we bring up Rasmus, Bryan Anderson, Jaime Garcia?".

"Waltdub" made a trip to the Midwest League Quad Cities River Bandits this past week. His detailed scouting report was posted on page two of the June 19th daily minor league thread, appropriately named: "Minor League Games - Thursday, June 19th".

In recognition of that post, "Waltdub" is our winner of the "Post of the Week". He 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!
