REDSZONERS had a banner year, posting well in the clutch and outplaying their pythag. Kudos to everyone who contributed tho this great board (except those who were DFA's with negative rep points).
Most missed poster
SteelSD? Well, part of him.
Best tag line
I stole KittyDuran's tagline for a while, even though I only made it to one Reds game this year (they won).
Matt700wlw. Yep, we get it you work in radio.
Most Valuable Poster
Cyclone792 had a great year, don't know where he found the time.
Krono is the king of one-liners
Best Armchair GM
M2 is great a dissecting every move. Hire Him!
Schroomytunes is the lord of impossible trades.
For me, it was the Barry Bonds/HOF/Steriod discussion. The topic returned several times with different versions, but the moral/legal/ethical/practical aspects of it were insightful. So many shades of gray!
Runner up, the discussion on the WBC, since it was all so new!
Redsland is a PRO. BCubb is an exceptional Random Thinker. But I'll give the nod to a Rookie. Natty Redslocks, who has posted about a dozen Song and Poem parodies in the last few months. I can't get his "Adam Dunn" parody of "Green Eggs and Ham" out of my head!
Best Use of Statistics
Cyclone and WOY.
Cyclone and WOY. But it's because they have a lot to say.
Edskin. Who treats us to a flower spring rant every year.
While everyone thinks Falls City Beer, I'll give my vote to his evil twin flyer85.
Best Use of an Emoticon
vaticanplum. She makes me want to be 20 years younger and single so I could ask her out. (Yeah, I said, it...but the rest of you guys thought it).
Like umpires and refs, the fact I can't remember who is a mod, means they're all doing an awesome job.
GAC is the Chat Room King. I've only been a couple of times, but he's always willing to type it up with everyone.
Great Rookie crop this year! Honorable mentions to edabbs44, Reds44, Ltlabner, redsmetz and a ton of others. My vote goes to dougdirt, who has practically taken over the Minor League Talk forum with incredible passion.
MattyMo4Life and Astrobuddy come to mind.
The Marty Brennamen Award
Caveat Emptor is absolutely incredible at this. But Kudos to everyone who tried their hand at the PBP (myself included). It's not easy and it's valuable for those who may not be able to get information on the game otherwise (blackouts, traveling, etc.)
The Old Red Guard Award
99% of the posts were good. Hard to remember the best.
Hard to take this away from WOY. Linedriver's "Today in History" series always brings back memories.
Lifetime Achievement Award
Boss-Hog and GIK. It's THEIR site (so I'll suck up).
Most Tired Topic of the Year
The complaining about the whining about the complaing about the whining on the game thread. Relax guys. [/QUOTE]
GREAT JOB EVERYONE
