Cards Message Board Post of the Week: 11/30


Posted Nov 30, 2008


Recognizing the very best post of the past week from our message board community of thousands of St. Louis Cardinals fans the world over. “Cardsfan914” is our 163rd and final weekly winner!

As we have each week here at stlcardinals.scout.com, we call out the best of the best - the “Post of the Week” from our Scout.com 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, November 30.

On page one of the thread ”The Early Line on 2009 Cards’ Positional Battles”, “easton714” offered up a well-designed scenario to make up the next edition of the Cardinals, position by position.

”You make the call - arbitration for Looper?” is a thread polling for views as to whether the Cardinals should make an attempt to bring back their former starter for another season. On page two, “1964Cards” explains point-by-point why he believes the Cardinals and Looper are made for each other.

At the top of page five of the ”middle infield thoughts and discussion thread”, “Cardsfan914” devised several trade ideas to acquire Joaquin Arias from the Texas Rangers.

In two later posts that same day and on the very same page, “Cardsfan914” listed the Bill James’ 2009 projections for both potential middle infield trade targets and free agents.

In recognition of some solid research and three solid posts, “Cardsfan914” is our winner of the “Post of the Week. He collects a free four-week subscription to stlcardinals.scout.com and all the other great sites in the Scout.com network.

In a related announcement, this will be the final installment of the Post of the Week feature after over three years. As the subscriber base has grown, an increasing percentage of weekly winners are already members. Therefore, a decision was made to discontinue the Post of the Week.

Before signing off, I want to acknowledge Leonda Markee’s strong support of this feature every week along the way.

Thank you for everyone’s participation and see you on the message boards.
