During this week, the general focus on the board seemed to move from celebrating and reminiscing about the 2006 World Champions to worry about the impending free agent season and potential the make-up of the team destined to defend the crown.
In all honesty, I didn't see the usual depth of posts this past week. But, I found one thread particularly interesting, as it looked back – way back – into Cardinals history.
Two posts from this thread were especially noteworthy. "VonderAhe" started it off with the recognition that the long history of the franchise meant they have crowned "Champs in three centuries".
VonderAhe (read the thread if you want to know the origin of the handle) pointed out the history of World Championships should include pre-1900 teams, too. Of course, the Cardinals are a big part of that.
Regular poster "Jmodene1" added a very rich post to the discussion, with more information about the successes of these early Cardinals squads.
In recognition of a fine post and starting a very informative discussion, "VonderAhe" wins a free four-week subscription to stlcardinals.scout.com and all the other great sites in the Scout.com network.
Next week, it can be you! So, keep posting!
