    I've already voted. Jeeps maybe this is too serious to not have voting done by secret ballot?

    Ah yes, informed irreverence.

    Seriously though ... Not trying to take the process too seriously. Just wouldn't mind knowing what people actually think about other posters.

    Vottomatic. I was truly sad to hear of his untimely passing.

    Most Valuable Poster
    WOY for me. I read every word. It's a little obsessive.

    Most Clever
    BCubb.

    Best Discussion
    Call me a masochist, but I love the discussion on Joey's approach to hitting and whether he should be more aggressive and when.

    Worst Typist
    I can't think of the poster (someone can help me) but there's one who, rather than ending a sentence in a period and a space, ends them in an ellipsis and no space. The journalism graduate in me has a hard time with that one.

    Best Use of Statistics

    Heather. Earlier this year after I got in an argument with another poster, she sent me a PM apologizing for that poster and encouraging me to give him a break.

    Tie for first place. I don't have a single complaint with anything those guys do on a daily basis. It's impressive how, on a board littered with debate (sometimes nice, sometimes less so) that nobody questions their leadership.

    I really don't know how I could possibly vote for one person for each category.

    There are too many good people here to even attempt it anymore.

    I think Redszone has outgrown the idea.

    Stormy. Loved his posts.
    No question. He's definitely missed.

    Ok, let's give this a shot....


    Most missed poster
    princeton. There were at least 3 times this season that begged for an old "Coddle thy pitchers and challenge thy hitters." quote.


    Best tag line
    757690. I'm a sucker for Einstein quotes.


    Best Moniker
    A lot of good names out there, but I'm going to go with [deleted]. That's just downright irreverent.


    Most Valuable Poster

    Caveat Emperor. Again, there are many , many MVP's here but CE is usually the one who posts what I think before I do.


    Most Clever

    Johnny Footstool and Bcubb. I love everything they post! Co-winners!


    Best Armchair GM

    This is tough...I know who I'd have for Director of Player Development. Truthfully, and don't take this personally, I much prefer the GM we have to any of you.


    Best Trademeister

    Krusty is still the king of slobberknockers.


    Best Discussion

    Hmmm...we had some pretty riveting discussions about the Pirates this season, but my favorite posts every year are the Spring Training threads...the first photos, who's in the best shape of their life, etc. I can't wait!!


    Worst Typist

    Nobody's really that bad, but REDREAD still confuses me from time to time.


    Funniest

    Lots of funny posters here, but I'll go with Raisor since he'll prolly cry if I don't mention him somewhere.


    Best Use of Statistics

    We've got our share of statheads here, but RedsManRick has turned it up a notch this year.


    Most Long-winded

    Although I often agree with him, I find dougdirt's occasional inability to let a point go tiring.


    Most Positive

    I'm going with an unsung optimist this year, jhiller21!


    Most Negative

    Falls City Beer, he'd be disappointed if he didn't get this one.


    Best Use of an Emoticon

    I think this is an area where the whole board can use a little improvement, but I'll go with HeatherC1212 for judicious use of emoticons in the game threads!


    Nicest

    Come on... KittyDuran! was there ever any doubt?!?


    Best Moderator

    All the moderators do a great job, but GIK and BossHog deserve most of the glory for their many years of selfless service to RedsZoners! <standing O>


    Best Chatter

    GAK!


    Most Off-Topic

    Dom Heffner is the king of obscure interconnections.


    Best Newcomer

    OC_Red. - Here's hoping for more like that in 2014!


    Best Outsider

    I'll go with Mike Thierry this year but MattyHo4Life has some longevity.


    The Marty Brennamen Award

    RedLegJake.


    The Old Red Guard Award

    ChipR


    Best Historian

    M2


    Lifetime Achievement Award

    westofyou


    Most Tired Topic of the Year

    Moneyball Man of the Year Award

    I'm going to go with a man and woman of the year with co-winners vaticanplum and TRF.

Also I nominate Sea Ray for Most Valuable Poster.

    Most Clever: Paintmered. I remember when he was a mod, Red always found new and creative reasons to close threads. Haven't seen him around lately but I doubt anyone has proved themselves more worthy.

    Funniest Poster: BCubb. Whenever I am having a bad day, which is admittedly less these days since I stopped visiting the Politics forum, I read BCubb's threads and it makes me smile.
