Re: Fourth Annual Redszone Postees Awards
Most missed poster
Stormy. I can't remember when he exited the building, but the lights have been dimmer ever since. We've picked up some real gems along the way, but it's a shame when one has to move on.
And of course, ORG.
Best tag line
Lots of others, but I have a hard time remembering who they belong to.
Most Valuable Poster
Rather than say one poster, I will mention the things that always get my attention- good use of stats (and formatting!), deep knowledge of the game, sense of history, and respect of other posters.
That last part is the one thing I believe makes the best posters stand out. Some use stats, some don't, but those who hold their fellow Zoners in high esteem are the Most Valuable Posters.
NWM deserves a nod. Can be funny, but most often bitingly clever.
Best Armchair GM
M2 - there has never been a FO move by any club that M2 couldn't parse and comment on.
I don't mind poor typing as much as I do poor writing. It's okay to be in a hurry, but for god's sake take the time to express yourself cogently.
Best Use of Statistics
BF never saw a thread that couldn't be turned sour.
They all do a great job. Thanks MODS!
I don't know. It seems like every time I start chatting, people log off.
Lifetime Achievement Award
boss - gik
We should just close voting on this one, folks. No Boss/gik, no Redszone.
Most Tired Topic of the Year
"The FO/Dano sucks."
We know already and I'd argue that we'd all be a lot happier if we just accepted their baseline suckitude. That way, we can't be anything but pleasantly surprised by even something as minor as Milton's ERA getting under 6.00.
I can't remember who this belonged to, but the animated SNL "More Cowbell" avatar made me ruin my keyboard.
Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.
