Re: Fifth Annual Redszone Postees Awards
Most missed poster
I really miss Creek, CougarQuest, and lately Krono.
Boobhat and Javy Pornstache and the ultimate for me. Both are absolutely genius inventions for names and make me laugh like a 12 year old looking at a "dirty" magazine everytime I see them .
Most Valuable Poster
So many. WOY, M2, Cyclone, dougdirt, OnBaseMachine, Steel, Doc Scott, Caveat Emporer, dabvu, registerthis, vaticanplum...I could go on for awhile. Lots of knowledgeable posters have displayed their knowledge over the last year.
But, if I had to choose one, like others have mentioned, Cyclone was "the man" this year. Tons of useful stats and explanations as to what they show and how they are relevant for analyzing whatever was being discussed.
Redsland and Natty Redlocks. Redsland, the stuff you post is gold. Natty, your song lyrics have been an absolute wonderful addition to Redszone for me.
Best Armchair GM
M2 and Doc Scott. Incredibile knowledge of everyone's teams, their strengths, weaknesses, their farm systems, who's overrated / underrated. I'm amazed by the information these guys hold in their noggin.
Move over, Krusty. Although he hasn't passed you in pure volume (who could?), I like the deals RedEye has proposed this year. All of them make sense and are realistic in nature.
The Draft, and the Redszone draft. I've never been more prepared for a draft in my life thanks to all of the discussion and knowledge that was typed in those threads. The Minor League forum has been a huge success, IMO. These two threads are two shining examples of why that was.
Puffy. Hands down. One of the funniest people I've ever come in contact with. This award should be re-named the Puffy Award. The quick-wit he displays along with the intelligence behind it, is priceless. I can't tell you the number of times people I work with have looked at me while I explode in laughter at one of his posts. Thanks, Puffy.
Best Use of Statistics
Agree with '62. Cyclone and WOY. Best balanced use of stats on the board.
GAC wins the award by default.
SandyD and vaticanplum get this award. They are both just happy people whose positive aura spills out onto the board when they post making you feel the joy that they possess..
FallsCityBeer. No competitiion, but that's not a bad thing all of the time. I enjoy your posts.
Best Use of an Emoticon
Krono. Another repeater. Krono's use of emoticons is unmatched.
Sandy, Vaticanplum, Puffy, RFS62 are real good, nice people, but this award goes to Roy Tucker for me. Roy, the help you gave me this year will never be forgotten. I owe you big time. Thank you so much for your advice and wisdom. I'll never know how to thank you enough. It's funny how, if you spend enough time on these boards, some of these people almost feel like family to you. I'd say Roy is my 2nd Dad.
Me. I'll try to pick up the slack this coming year. For those that didn't know, I was appointed the moderator of the Minor League forum and there were problably 5-10 posters that spent more time in there than me. I promise, I'll do better next year.
Agree with '62 again: Vaticanplum. There was some pretty stiff competition this year as a lot of new posters were excellent additions, but vaticanplum was, IMO, the best.
The Old Red Guard Award
"The trade" threads. Excellent discussions.
WOY. I don't know how he does it, but every year he gets better. I'm simply blown away with his knowledge.
Lifetime Achievement Award
Roy Tucker. I think I nominated M2, WOY, and '62 last year. This year Roy Tucker joins the "elite" for me.
Most Tired Topic of the Year
I'd like to thank everyone on the board, especially those of you who contributed countless posts to the Minor League forum this year, as well as Boss and GIK. Another awesome year of Redszone.
