    Most missed poster

    Vottomatic. I disagreed with him a lot, but he passed way too soon.





    Most Valuable Poster

    Doug or Gallen for me here. I read Doug's site, but I appreciate what he brings here too. Gallen's post are usually links to news, and I really enjoy that fact.


    Most Clever

    BCubb




    Best Trademeister

    I think Benihana does these in his sleep.




    Funniest

    Tom Servo


    Best Use of Statistics

    RMR, hands down.



    Most Positive

    Sir Charles


    Most Negative

    5Time



    The Marty Brennamen Award

    Reds Fanatic, Sir Charles


    Best Historian

    WOY, RedsMetz



    Most Tired Topic of the Year

    Anything regarding Votto's approach, Bruce's streaks, or Walt sleeping

    Moneyball Man of the Year Award

    I enjoy KC's stats updates throughout the season.



    Best Avatar

    I enjoy the avatar's that change by the poster's moods. Such as, Reds44 and the player of the moment for him, that he thinks could help. Or Tom Servo's changing avi's, or Homer Bailey's Homer Bailey.

    Re: 2014 Postees Awards

    Maybe it's just me but, for me, Boss Hog and GIK deserve all the awards. What they've built here is unlike anywhere else on the web and, other than a few bad apples and a particular forum that I no longer post in because of a personal vow to be a better person, everyone here is respectful and knowledgable. Also I nominate Sea Ray for Most Valuable Poster.

    Oh man. I saw NRBQ play at the first Earth Day at Miami U. in 1970. I used to be a hippie.

    Re: 2014 Postees Awards

    Most missed poster: Raisor. He's not even gone and I miss him already. I can only imagine how those who actually like him must feel.

    Best tag line: Chris Utz. It's beauty resides in it's simplicity.

    Best Moniker: Since I don't know what a moniker is, Raisor.

    Most Valuable Poster: Again, Chris Utz. This was a dog fight between he and Raisor but in the end, he has been a member since March 2002 and I can honestly say that I have never disagreed with anything Utz has posted. Sorry Raisor.

    Most Clever: Raisor. His posts aren't really particularly inspiring but when one realizes that he is actually exerting mind control while slowly taking over the world through subliminal messages embedded within his posts, well then, one must acknowledge a whole new level of clever.

    Best Armchair GM: Chris Utz. I have yet to disagree with his shared wisdom.

    Best Trademeister: Chris Utz. I have yet to disagree with his shared wisdom


    Best Discussion: Sorry Raisor-Uts again. Though at times the pregnant pauses can be deafening, often the silences have been paths to enlightenment.

    Funniest: Raisor in a landslide. And yes, to echo sentiments in your PM, I agree that Larry Schuler is just a two bit hack wannabe who could never approach your genius.

    Best Use of Statistics: Raisor. He won a nobel prize for inventing pythag.

    Most Long-winded: Raisor. I've never seen anyone capable of holding their breath under water as long as he can.

    Most Positive: Chris Utz. Again-been a member since spring 2002 and has never uttered a negative thing. It was close but Raisor said that one thing once.

    Most Negative: Easily Raisor.

    Best Use of an Emoticon: Raisor! I think he earned his 22nd Nobel prize by inventing emoticons.

    Nicest: Raisor

    Best Moderator: Raisor. Again, he does more with his embedded mind control code in one post than an entire mod staff could accomplish in a year. This isn't a knock on the mods, its just they're human after all. Not a fair fight, really.

    Best Chatter: I've never been in chat, but really, is it even a contest? Raisor.

    Most Off-Topic: Raisor.

    Best Newcomer: Raisor. I know he's been around a while but every post just seems so fresh.

    Best Outsider: Raisor.


    The Marty Brennamen Award: Raisor. I think it's mostly because he's his idol (yes, Marty thinks that much of him...)

    The Old Red Guard Award: Raisor!

    Best Historian: Raisor. Seriously, if he doesn't say it happened, it didn't.

    Lifetime Achievement Award: Raisor.

    Most Tired Topic of the Year: Anything that calls Raisor's awesomeness into question. Enough already, people!

    Moneyball Man of the Year Award: Raisor. Billy Beane has him on speed dial though, to be fair, they might spend a decent amount of time discussing men's fashions too.

    The Lenny Harris Award: Raisor.

    Best Avatar: Raisor.

    If it had been the RaisorZone awards I would have done better.
