Okay, here are my nominations:
Most missed poster
creek, without a doubt
Wetzel (or Johnny Vander M to the uneducated)
Gotta agree with BCubb
Best Armchair GM
gonna listen to my heart and nominate Krusty on this one
The OPS thread. I went into that knowing nothing, and SteelSD and a few others showed me what I wasn't seeing.
Best Use of Statistics
I could easily choose WOY of Steel for this one, but Ravenlord is the only person I know of who has actually invented his own stats so I'm gonna go with him.
TeamBoone and TeamCasey...and for those of you who haven't met them in person with a few drinks in them, let me tell ya, they can get a lot more positive :evilgrin:
Tough call, but I'm gonna go with GAC. Again, my personal introduction to him helped influence this a bit, but he also takes the time to answer a lot of questions I have had via e-mail.
How do you choose? The ones I don't pick might ban me! I'm going to go with CQ and Chip. Again, met them both, and they're both unbelievably nice guys. Chip even gave me a cigar as a bribe for this one day, but I can't leave CQ out. They both respond in a timely fashion to PM's and do an excellent job at keeping trouble from breaking out on the board...something we haven't had to worry about in quite a while thank God!
Ravenlord. In a short time, he's made quite an impact on this board. I've been here 3 years longer than he has, and he has almost as many posts as I do! I'd say that at least 80% of his posts serve a good purpose in discussions, which isn't a bad amount when you really think about it.
Ramp. He was my second choice for best newcomer. Came over to our board from the Marlin board when the Brad Penny trade rumor came out, and he's been here ever since, offering insightful baseball discussion and a passion for his team that I really admire. Also, he went to prom with a really hot chick.
Most Valuable Poster
The two posters that I always read, are LarkinFan and Team Clark. Both don't post as much anymore, but when they do it's always worth taking the time to read. I nominate them both for this award.
Comeback Poster of the Year
Red Storm. Always has been one of my favorite posters, and I missed him during his absence. It's great to see him back posting again.
Backbone of the Board Nominees
Kinda like a lifetime achievement award. I nominate these two guys for their contributions to this board since I've been here. RFS62 and Guernsey. These two definately belong in the Redszone Hall of Fame.
This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.
If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.
