Cards Message Board Post of the Week: 9/21/08

Recognizing the very best post of the past week from our message board community of thousands of St. Louis Cardinals fans the world over. "Gagliano" is our 153rd 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, September 20.

One of the longest-running most popular threads on our board focuses on "TRADES/RUMORS/TRADE IDEAS - CONTINUED". In fact, this link is to the 106th page and counting. There, "thejager" lays out the Cardinals needs in the upcoming off-season and players the Cardinals might trade to fill those needs.

Every year at this time, discussion begins regarding the future of Cardinals manager Tony La Russa, who is under contract for 2009, but could likely leave if he so chooses. If he departs, a "New Manager" would be required. On page two, "Jmodene1" looks at the sourcing of all club managers over the last 50 years, internal vs. external.

One of the most popular threads recently is "Mozeliak promises to be more aggressive". On page three, "SoonerinNC" identifies team weaknesses and what the Cardinals might do for next season to address them.

Our winner this week was posted by long-time message board contributor, "Gagliano". His most noteworthy item last week looked at the yearly streak of Cardinals later inducted into the Hall of Fame compared to other MLB organizations in the thread entitled " Do the Cards have the best HOF run in MLB?".

In recognition of that post, "Gagliano" is our winner of the "Post of the Week and 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!
