    2014 Postees Awards

    Time for the nominations.

    The Categories from past years (any ideas for new categories this year?):

    Most missed poster

    Miss the daily Richard Hand expose on typing with both eyes closed? Wish Fox could still regale us with constant rumors from his unnamed baseball sources? Fiind yourself melancholy over the absense of a myriad of former posters? Who's missed most?


    Best tag line

    The tag line is that little thing at the bottom of some posts. No, not that little thing at the bottom; the other little thing. Who inspires best? Makes you laugh? Makes you scratch your head trying to decipher those in jokes that are sure to make sense if only you start licking toads.


    Best Moniker

    Like the understatement of princeton, that Ivy League professor of Reds-related knowledge? Or, Hey Kids! How about Krusty? Does one of the Teamsters make you think about things even before you read their posts? If so, show them you care!


    Most Valuable Poster

    Whose information do you read first, agree the most with, or disagree but read first anyway? Who finds things you'd never, ever get to read without their help? Who makes you think most?


    Most Clever

    Best use of poetry, tone, statistics, one-liners to get the point across. Who made a point this year that just made you stop whatever else you were doing and go "uh-huh".


    Best Armchair GM

    Who would you rather run the Reds than Jim Bowden? Who is the next Theo Epstein?


    Best Trademeister

    Who comes up with the best deals? Whether it be plausible or not, which of the ADD posters here entertains you with their constant tinkering with the Cincinnati roster?


    Best Discussion

    Which discussion throughout the year made you think the most? Made you turn to the most? Got the most response? Made you bang your head on the keyboard and curse the heavens because it came up so slow?


    Worst Typist

    Whether it be grammatical, misspellings, or unclear wording, who makes you scratch your head and wonder what they're taking?


    Funniest

    Who makes you shoot milk through your nose everytime they post? Who makes you giggle even before you open their posts?


    Best Use of Statistics

    Which sabre-head helps you understand the game best?


    Most Long-winded

    Who can't ever shut up, even though you already get the point and wish they'd just stop, they just keep going and going and going, even though they've already gotten across everything they wanted to say they also go off onto other tangents like that time I was sittin in my car and suddenly I thought of a great trade involving Danny Jackson and a gorilla except this gorilla is like the gorilla in Congo and have you ever seen that movie it's really not bad... Nevermind.


    Most Positive

    Begging the pardon of Rosy Red here, who's the rosiest of us all? Whose glass is consantly half full?


    Most Negative

    Who is the eeyore?

    Best Use of an Emoticon

    Who deserves an for coming up with all the best of these little guys out of all us posters.

    Nicest

    Who is the person most likely to give you the Junor Jersey off their back? Who makes you grin like a little kid?


    Best Moderator

    Who do you depend on the most? Which one of those guys seems to fix everything?


    Best Chatter

    Only those that have attended the chat room may vote in this highly contested award. (Haynes underwear will be given to the winner. But not Haynes' underwear.)


    Most Off-Topic

    I like potatoes!


    Best Newcomer


    Who has joined Redszone in the last year and made a lasting impact? The Rookie of the Year.


    Best Outsider

    Favorite fan of a team other than the Reds


    The Marty Brennamen Award

    Who does the best job of play by play during the game threads?

    The Old Red Guard Award

    We all know the post. What was the most memorable post of the last year? The one that really made you think, reminisce or stand up and cheer.

    Best Historian

    Who does the best job of bringing back yesterday when baseball was a game and those who played it were gods?

    Lifetime Achievement Award

    Who has provided the most to Redszone for the duration of their time spent here? Someone who has been around since the early days and hasn't skipped a beat. The Frank Sinatra of Redszone.

    Most Tired Topic of the Year

    What one topic showed up in about 300 threads a day? The one that you swore you would go postal on someone if you saw one more thread about it ever again.

    Moneyball Man of the Year Award

    What poster went all Brad Pitt a la Billy Beane with the best in depth analysis of stats and moves made by the Reds over the last year?

    The Lenny Harris Award

    What poster doesn't show up often in threads, but when they do, they deliver with timely posts that drive home the point of a topic?

    Best Avatar

    Does kaldaniels drunk Charlie Sheen in a Reds shirt make you think about WINNING (!) every time you see it? Does a guest appearance by Votto in HeatherC1212's avatar make you smile with each new post? Let them know.


    Feel free to add your own new categories if there's something you think we should recognize that I didn't include here.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I will save everyone the trouble right now. No one is getting any of my three Junior jerseys (One Reds, two Mariners). Ask for it and we are probably fighting each other.

    Here are my nominations in the categories that I felt I could give something to.

    Most Valuable Poster

    Tough one. Four guys really jumped to the top. Going to nominate RedsManRick

    Best Discussion

    Don't always agree with him, but I like the passion from Brutus.

    Most Long-winded

    He doesn't show up enough, but when he does he types 1500 words per response. SteelSD.


    Nicest

    KittyDuran
    seems to be giving things away 55 weeks a year.


    Best Historian

    westofyou



    The Lenny Harris Award

    Re: 2014 Postees Awards

    Most Clever has to be BCubb.

    Nicest is KittyDuran. She has sent me quite a few calandars, magnets etc.. over the years for no cost at all. Incredibly nice.

    Historian has to be WOY. Encyclopedia of historical knowledge.

    Most Tired Topic has to be Rose to the HOF question. I'm sick of that but it comes up multiple times every single year.

    Funniest to me is GAC. He knows how to lighten up a moment and not take himself too seriously. I always get a smile from his posts.

    Lifetime Achievment for me would be Roy Tucker. He was here long before me and is always around with a good post. He's one of those posters who I always click to read what he has said no matter the topic.

    Re: 2014 Postees Awards

    Most Tired Topic:

    Trade proposals for Giancarlo Stanton. This has decreased over time, but for awhile there this just drove me nuts.

    Historian:

    WoY

    MVP:

    dougdirt - I do not always appreciate how he argues with people, but his knowledge of the minor leagues is unparalleled and he provides information on a subject I have difficulty finding elsewhere.

    Most Negative -

    New York Red

    Funniest -

    Raisor

    Best Avatar/Name combo -

    RedTeamGo!

    Re: 2014 Postees Awards

    Most missed poster

    Vottomatic

    We lost him this year way too soon and, even though I didn't always agree with him, his sudden absence was definitely felt by all.

    Most Valuable Poster

    RedsManRick

    I really appreciate his patience, diplomacy and ability to speak to both sides of the issues.

    Most Clever

    Raisor

    He has a system. It works.

    Best Trademeister

    Benihana

    Combine an in-depth knowledge of the minor leagues and a zest for the improbable but possible, and you get Beni.

    Best Discussion

    Brutus

    Gotta agree with dougdirt on this one. Sometimes I think Brutus is just here to play devil's advocate, but he does it darn well.

    Worst Typist

    WVPacman

    Something about lack of spacing after periods really bugs me. It does, however, make this poster's ideas distinctive.

    Funniest

    Larry Schuler

    A force of informed irreverence on the board -- and always chimes in at just the right time.

    Best Use of Statistics

    SteelSD

    He puts his numbers where his mouth is.

    Most Long-winded

    Old school 1983

    There are some great ideas in there, but sometimes he posts another long post before I've finished reading his last one!

    Most Positive

    _Sir_Charles_

    I don't remember him always being this positive, but man... let him be an inspiration to us all.

    Most Negative

    Falls City Beer

    His much-heralded return to posting has brought a smart cloud of doubt to all of my hard-earned optimism.

    Who is the eeyore?

    5TimeWSChamps

    His recent "Time to Move on from Walt" thread single-handedly won this award for me. FCB himself would agree, I think.

    Nicest

    redsmetz

    Always a voice of reason with kind words to add in any discussion.

    Best Moderator

    Boss-Hog

    Not sure he counts as a moderator, but he sure is quick with the response on any and every issue.

    Best Newcomer

    PepperJack

    Easily the best all-around poster in the 2013 class for me. Also one of the three most prolific, I think.

    Best Outsider

    jojo

    Not sure if he counts for this category, but I believe his heart is in Seattle -- or at least split between the Queen City and the Pacific Northwest. Also a finalist for the Statistics award for me.

    Best Historian

    woy

    Hands down. Also could have qualified for the most knowledge on a variety of other topics. Didn't realize he was also a huge fan of European art film, for example.

    Lifetime Achievement Award

    dougdirt

    He actually hasn't been around since the beginning (I think we joined around the same time) but he's been by far one of the biggest contributors since then. His posts alone make the Minor League forum worth visiting regularly (and he's not the only poster... which makes it even better!)

    Most Tired Topic of the Year

    Votto's approach to hitting was interesting to discuss at first. Not so much anymore.

    The Old Red Guard Award

    I'll have to do some research on this and get back to you...

    Re: 2014 Postees Awards

    I'll add a few more:

    Most Missed is Vottmatic He was a good poster who's untimely death was a shocked to all of us.

    Most positve has to be Sir Charles. I wish I could be as positive as he seems to be at all times.

    Best Armchair GM is KC61 I don't laways agree with him but he puts very good thought into all of his posts.

    Best Moderator It's hard for to pick one. All the mods do a great job and make this site the best baseball forum in the Internet universe.

    I have to ask, am I one of the three most prolific from 2013?

    I just realized during this thread that I am part of the 2013 class.

That's an amazing statement."
