Ok, lets just say that we had a challenge from a rival website (e.g., SOSH, not that they're a real rival or anythting) to put up our 5 best posters againt theirs in order to face off in a series of baseball interrogations. Who would you want to represent RedsZone?

My five:

M2
Cyclone792
SteelSD
RedsManRick
SMcGavin

Who would you go to battle with?

In that order. And if Pedro was still around he would get consideration...

edit: wow, I would want to bring along jojo, DougDirt, and M2 as well. This is a really tough call.

Any top 5 minus Jojo would be doing us a disservice

And honorable mention to Krono if you want to wear them down with sheer volume. :)

Not sure. You'd have to ask WOY...

Who's in your fave 5?

1) Jojo- our version of Matt Holiday; a monster at home (reds/mariners) and all star level everywhere else
2) DougDirt- Basically Homer Bailey. Phenomenal in the minors but gets roughed up a touch in the majors
3) WestofYou- Every team needs a coach that watched pre WWII baseball and can back up almost any statement made with an obscure article from a 1968 newspaper from Omaha. (a la Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting)
4) Mth123- He is a version of Greg Maddux. Except where he aged and slowly saw his numbers drop he remains on his Cy Young form.
5) FallsCityBeer- The amount of pessimism that exudes from his body is rivaled only by Baseclogger and Highlifeman21 (better? everyone stay calm, deep breaths, inhale, exhale, now that must feel better) . He will be able to bring down any opponent's argument in under 3 lines on a post. Basically he is Mariano Rivera

Are you kidding me?

Pick 5 guys for a imaginary battle of the boards. I chose 5 and jokingly listed a reason for each.

Calm down little buddy

The concern is a joke like that could shut down an interesting thread...

I think that someone should compose a comprehensive baseball knowledge test and include a few questions that would require putting the knowledge into specific situations. This is a tough task and I am personally not willing or able to make such a test, but it is still an idea. I mean how did all great inventions start? With an idea:thumbup:

Bingo.

See, *BaseClogger* gets it.

It's always a shame when interesting/engaging threads go the way of the dodo b/c someone had to take a political cheap shot....



As an aside, these refs are HORRIBLE in the MNF Niners @ Cardinals...

I really think he was just trying to be funny... Geezy pete's, maybe if the Reds had a winning season every once in a while people wouldn't be so touchy around here :)

Hmmm, I can't let others go to battle without me. So as long as I don't have to argue against any of these guys....

Only five? That's tough, but I'll take a stab at it.

Yachtzee - knows at least two languages; likes Devo; good sense of humor; handy in case of legal problems
RedsManRick - very informed, motivated, and passionate; his posts are well-thought out and articulate
FallsCityBeer - won't bend on anything; he knows he's right, regardless of how right/wrong he is; will out-last any opponent
KittyDuran - everyone loves free stuff
camisadelgolf - he brings beer wherever he goes; exceptional grammar and spelling (despite the frequent alcohol poisoning); likes to talk in third person

Honorable mentions:
westofyou - tends to start the more interesting threads, even if people don't always post much in them
BCubb2003 - his 'random thoughts' are always classic (but should post more)
Matt700wlw - has the ability to reach a large audience; nice guy
RedsMetz - open mind; plays a perfect devil's advocate; great at encouraging a more fluid discussion
Boss-Hog - we need someone to help keep things civil; also handy in the case of bandwith problems

Is the question who's the best for general baseball knowledge, or who would be best for general baseball discussions/agruments? Seems to me those are two different skilz.

Any list without me is a good list. I'd go with:

woy
M2
SteelSD
princeton
Raisor

I covered snark, snide, history, stats and common sense.

I don't think you could go wrong with anyone on RZ. Most of us were the top posters or close on our particular sites before we came here. In fact that's part of the reason we came here because we needed to grow. No other site is close IMO. But I will give props to the O's hangout they do ok there and at least have the same passion we do. So my 5, ahh take your pick and I'll run with them. But here's a 5 that I wouldn't mind traveling to that site with.

VaticanPlum - Passionate, who's not a sucker for her. :thumbup:
OBM - My brotha from anotha motha, we certainly think similiarly when it comes to baseball. Sorry if that offends you OBM. ;) (BTW I'd still take Izturis over Aybar, LOL)!
SteelSD - Argumentative as all get out but interesting & hilarious too (see Non-baseball chatter). Besides who needs more than him to win an argument?
TeamClark - Doesn't say a whole lot but Insightful when he does and down to earth.
Will M - Guy put ME in his top 5, gotta show him some luv for that!

Honorable mentions:
CoffeyBro (very thoughtful person) & Lockdwn11 (He's my bro-in-law & friend).

Definitely the best at discussions/arguments. Remember, you're going against some tough competition (hypothetically of course), so you gotta bring the guns that can fire, not just know how to fire but can't bring it. (Bad analogy, but you get the idea :))

BTW, Doug has the right idea. You're automatically included in my made up competition. The idea is who you'd want to back you up while representing RZ.
