If you’re anywhere close to as obsessed with Twitter as I am you’ll want to add a bunch of Cardinals and Rangers reporters, writers, and bloggers to your follow list for the next couple weeks.

At the risk of leaving out some deserving folks, here’s a list of recommended Cardinals follows for the World Series (for the Rangers version, click here):

- @drewsilv: HBT’s own Drew Silva, who also happens to be a Cardinals fan. You should be following him already, but just in case you’re not.

- @miklasz: Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post Dispatch, one of the best local columnists and radio show hosts in the country.

- @dgoold: Derrick Goold, one half of the St. Louis Post Dispatch‘s excellent beat reporting duo.

- @joestrauss: Joe Strauss, the other half of the St. Louis Post Dispatch‘s excellent beat reporting duo.

- @matthewhleach: MLB.com’s Cardinals beat reporter Matthew Leach, who was one of the very first people I followed on Twitter.

- @bjrains: B.J. Rains, who formerly worked alongside Leach at MLB.com and now covers the Cardinals for FOXSportsMidwest.com.

- @mattsebek: Matt Sebek blogs for Joe Sports Fan and is my pick for funniest Cardinals follow on Twitter.

- @pitchershit8th: As the name suggests, Pitchers Hit Eighth is a blog devoted to manager Tony La Russa and the Cardinals, with quality writing from Nick, Josh, Andrew, and Dennis.

- @fungoes: Matt Philip runs Fungoes, which is the official Cardinals blog of ESPN.com.

- @daynperry: Dayn Perry, who in addition to being a big Cardinals fan has long been one of my favorite sabermetric writers at FOXSports.com, ESPN.com, Baseball Prospectus, and other places.

- @athooks: Aaron Hooks, who in addition to having a fantastic first name also blogs at Cardinals Diaspora.

- @c70: Daniel Shoptaw from C70 At The Bat.

- @erik_manning: Gas House Graphs blogger and Fan Graphs writer Erik Manning.

- @williamfleitch: Will Leitch is best known for his work at Deadspin and New York magazine, but he’s also a diehard Cardinals fan and must-follow.

Note: Again, my apologies for leaving good people off the list. Feel free to complain to me via Twitter.

    @miklasz: Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post Dispatch, one of the best local columnists and radio show hosts in the country.

    Really…his column is fine, but have you ever heard the radio show? This guys speaks about as well as Bud Selig with all the bumbling he does.

    @pitchershit8th:

    I remember a few years ago have a long ranging comments argument with one of their writers who insisted Joe Morgan was a “marginal” hall of famer. I don’t think I’ve read their blog since.

      Really, do 5 of you think Joe Morgan’s inclusion to the hall of fame is questionable? Because, in the history of internet blog statements, doubting Joe Morgan’s hall of fame credentials is among the dumbest things I’ve ever read.

    @pitchershit8th:

    I read this as something besides “Pitchers Hit 8th”, but I got the pun…or something else.
