    I know he isn't a poster, but Dan O'Brien!!! He's great. He used to be with Houston and a few other teams. And he went to Ohio St. Who else would you want!!??

    Re: Fourth Annual Redszone Postees Awards

    Most Valuable Posters

    GIK/Boss - Did you log in today to Redszone and noticed that everything worked just fine? Then thank these two guys. Tirelessly and quietly behind the scenes these guys keep the trains running on time, so to speak. Most of all they do it without any of the public kudos - and they certainly don't ask for any attention for doing so. Think about Redszone not being here - we'd all be at *shudder* mlb.com's forums or something worse.

    Most Clever

    Creek - Always has that biting, witty point to make that is dead on. She's tall, knowledgeable about baseball and smart. Really, what more do you want from a woman?

    Most missed poster

    Stormy & TeamDunn - Both have been away far too long.

    Most Missed Poster who has no business not being around

    Raisor - His Redszone membership has been revoked by his new wife, apparently.

    Most Positive

    TeamCasey - Gotta be TC - she echoes the enthusiasm I hold for Reds baseball time and again. I can see that energy in her posts, like a shining beacon in a fog of mist....yeah....that's it...a shining beacon....

    Best Moderator

    Tie - all of them. These guys put up with so much grief trying to play the big brother sorting thru our pissing matches. Can't pick just one. Maybe if you Chip a macro sized piece of paint off a zombie, then Reds4life fan Joseph wouldn't be such an ochre. Or something like that.

    Best Moniker

    Scrap Irony makes me chuckle every time I see the name.

    Best New Poster

    WilyMoROCKS - Although there were a couple up there for this award

    Best Historian

    WestofYou - Can anyone else really even be considered for this award? I don't know if tests have yet confirmed if he is the bastard son of Branch Rickey or not. Get back to me on that one.

    Best Discussion

    Anytime we talking about catching. There have been a couple of times this season where us former knuckle draggers can reminisce and it always brings back good memories.

    Worst Discussion

    Sac Flies - Dear God - make it stop right now. RIGHT NOW.

    The Old Red Guard Award

    Crash Davis - Crash's post about ESPN and their loss of the average fan that I still refer to from time to time. Heck that could have been from last year for all I remember. I don't care - it was excellent stuff.

    Best use of statistics

    M2 & Steel - Not so much a statistic award but more of a "Best Outside the Box thinking" type of award. Both continue to educate me, the engineer, in different ways looking at the game of baseball. Not just from a statistical point of view but from a total "re-think" of how we as fans look at the game. I don't always agree with both or either of you, but you always keep my brain thinking about the game just when I think I have it all figured out. I eat that stuff up so keep it coming.

    I was thinking captainmorgan07 for that one. A few capital letters and punctuation wouldn't go amiss. No offense captain.

    Do we even need to vote on the historian award? Just give it to WOY.

    Re: Fourth Annual Redszone Postees Awards

    Time for the nominations.

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

    Most missed poster

    Who's missed most?

    My nominee: guernsey. I really miss guernsey and the knowledge he brought to the board.




    Best tag line

    My nominee: Puffy's tag lines are always funny, no matter what he changes them to.



    Best Moniker

    My nominee. I'm going to give this one to Caveat Emporer, although CaptainHook comes in a close second.



    Most Valuable Poster

    My nominee: Too many to list. M2, woy, Steel, creek, ochre along with the previously mentioned Caveat Emporer and CaptainHook off the top of my head are my favorites to read. But there are plenty of others



    Most Clever

    My nominee: woy's one liners are always hiliarious, and they're always so darn clever. When I read his posts I feel like the joker in Batman saying "where does he get such wonderful toys."



    Best Armchair GM

    My nominee: I'm going to give this one to M2. He has a lot of vision about a "plan" that I wish existed in the Reds organization.




    Worst Typist

    My nominee: captainmorgan07, bar none.



    Funniest

    For the second straight year, I can't imagine not voting for Puffy.



    Best Use of Statistics

    My nominee. I'm going to give this one to Steel. He does an absolute fabulour job trying to prove to people why each and every transaction the Reds make are either good or bad. You might not always like to hear what he says, but he's right 99% of the time, if not more. He goes above and beyond to explain things to people.



    Most Positive

    My nominee: RFS62. Always there to pick you up after you feel like Dan O'Brien just slit your throat and left you to die. I appreciate it, buddy.




    Best Use of an Emoticon

    My nominee: Sir Krono, maybe only because he has the most opportunities to use them




    Nicest

    My nomination: Sandy. She's been through hell this year, and still would do anything for anyone at anytime. I real class act.
    Roy Tucker follows very closely behind. Just a great guy any way you slice it.




    Best Moderator

    They have all done a fabulous job this year. Congrats, and thanks to you all.




    Most Off-Topic

    My nominee: BadFundamentals. It's always about Dunn and K's, somehow.



    Best Newcomer

    My nominee: CaptainHook, followed closely by the GARB. Not sure if they both qualify, but I can't remember voting for them last year. They are both great additions to the board, regardless.




    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.

    My nominee: I'm going to give my vote to RFS62. Just a great, deserving man. He has done so much this year following the hurricanes that he deserves an actual national award of recognition, and his contributions to the board over the years are outstanding. You da man!



    Most Tired Topic of the Year

    My nominee: Dunn and strikeouts. Get over it already. The guy strikes out, big deal. He also produces more runs than anyone else on the team, which is his job on offense.

    I know there was about 5-10 of us that did game threads for awhile.

    I am mainly here to read news... I don't post most (look at the post count )

    Anyways, the game thread is where I got most of my Rep Points

    Re: Fourth Annual Redszone Postees Awards

    The Categories from last year (With my nominations under the bold)

    Most missed poster

    Raisor - but he'll be Comeback Poster of the Year for 2006.

    Redslands - "This post needs to do the little things" & SuperBarry11 - "Love is doing the things that don't show up in the box scores" - Hilarious

    Best Moniker

    krono - proving the quanity DOES way out over quality

    Most Valuable Poster

    Krusty - the trade ideas are usually off the wall - but I like to read them.

    Most Clever

    Creek - especially when Dunner gets mentioned in a not-so-flattering light.

    Best Armchair GM

    Either Steel or M2

    Best Trademeister

    Same as above.

    Best Discussion

    Any DanO move.

    Most Long-winded

    Most Positive

    Any of the Teams - Boone, Casey, Dunn

    Most Negative

    See "Most Long-winded"

    Best Use of an Emoticon

    Me getting dinged for on a few points that I felt were deserved.

    Nicest

    Best Moderator

    Everybody.

    Most Off-Topic

    jmmclain19's "How to identify RedZoners' in Public"

    Best Newcomer

    WillyMoRocks got some serious rep points in a hurry - astronomical move man.


    Best Outsider

    I don't pay attention to that I guess

    New Categories

    The Marty Brennamen Award

    Matt700WLW - when he's working the board

    The Old Red Guard Award

    Anything with Rasior's Pyth. Theorem of Baseball - the Nationals thread was great.

    anyone who has a website called www.deadballart.com might win.

    Lifetime Achievement Award

    I've only been around since May - I can't vote.

    Most Tired Topic of the Year

    Anything on Brennaman. Dude's been here in Cincinnati as long as some of us have been alive. We know his shortcomings - but face it - He ain't going anywhere. Let him spew his spew and cheer when's right. Case Closed.

    Two other categories -
    Most Absurd, Yet Funniest Thread of the Year

    It had to be the RedZone 10. I think that one, though not a very positive thread, ought to be archived for sheer laughter.

    Re: Fourth Annual Redszone Postees Awards

    Most missed poster

    Stormy, it's been too long.

    Best tag line

    "In what was destined to be a short-lived spectacle, a chicken, suspended by a balloon, floated through the Samurai bar's doorway." - TRF

    Best Moniker

    Bad Fundamentals, perfect name for a fundamentally bad poster

    Most Valuable Poster

    This is a tough one. WOY and RFS62 managed to raise their already ridiculously high bars this year, but I'm starting to think flames jump from Steel's fingers when he's posting because that's how on fire he's been for the entire year.

    Most Clever

    BCubb, random genius

    Honorable mention to Puffy and his trademarked loathing (not to mention his in-depth interview with CBus)

    Best Armchair GM

    princeton, who never met a box that could hold him

    Best Trademeister

    Tie - Red Leader and Island Red, they don't propose a ton of trade, but when they do it's almost always a good idea.

    Best Discussion

    What this board does on draft day is truly amazing. It's two days of great stuff every year.

    Funniest

    Redsland, we've got a lot of witty folks around here, but Redsland is gut bustling funny.

    Best Use of Statistics

    Part of Steel being on fire has been his precision use of statistics. He's put on a clinic in the right way to slice the numbers.

    Most Long-winded

    Normally I'd say it's bad form to vote for yourself, but with Stormy inactive this year I'm forced to say it's me.

    Most Positive

    Krusty always believes there's a slobberknocker around the corner, bless his heart.

    Most Negative

    FCB, nobody does it better.

    Nicest

    Rosie Red strikes me as probably being one of the nicer you'd ever want to meet.

    Most Off-Topic

    Jim Coombs

    Most Absurd Thread

    "How to identify Redzoners in Public" deserves an award and I figure this one is as good as any.

    http://www.redszone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=39603

    Best Newcomer

    Yet another crowded field with Blimpie, registerthis, CincyRedsFan30, Ricardo Cabesa, rdiersin, PickOff, WilyMoROCKS, WVPacman, Cyclone792, Heath and 11BarryLarkin11

    But, following in Zombie's footsteps, Joseph's gone from newbie to moderator in a single calendar year.

    Best Outsider

    Stewie, who gives Phillies fans a good name (and that's not easy to do).

    The Marty Brennamen Award

    Doc Scott's a brilliant PBP guy. CTA513 is probably the most dilligent

    The Old Red Guard Award

    I don't even know if it was this year or late last winter, but RFS beautifully bridged the stats/seamhead divide, showing us all how someone with a great mind for the game never stops learning. Just a great post and a lesson for everyone know matter how long you've been following the game. I'll include a link to it if I can find it.

    Best Historian

    WOY has put together a series of historical essays this year that are as good as any baseball history you will read anywhere, ever.

    Lifetime Achievement Award

    Boss and GIK for starting this whole thing.

    Re: Fourth Annual Redszone Postees Awards

    Most missed poster

    Stormy. He makes me smarter when he posts…err…used to post.

    Most Whipped Poster

    Raisor, the vows say “…forsaking all others…”. But I don’t think that posting more on Redszone equates marital infidelity. Dork.

    Most missed game chatter

    TeamDunn. A Reds game, a six pack, and Redszone chat just ain’t as good without TD around.

    Best tag line

    Not a tag line, per se, but the “Posting to Contact” under Big Donkey’s username made me laugh pretty hard the first time I saw it.

    Best Moniker

    lollipopcurve. So many generic usernames out there, but you can be pretty sure that you’re on a baseball board when you see that moniker.

    Most Valuable Poster

    M2. Has nailed the heart of every matter he’s posted about for quite some time. Always a guy you can count on to be here day in and day out.

    Most Clever

    gonelong's posts make me wish I'd have typed mine that way.

    Best Armchair GM

    This one is nigh-impossible. There are easily a dozen people on this board I’d rather have running the team than the current FO. So I’m going to go to follow Boston's lead and name Boss and GIK as co-GM’s. If Redszone is run is any indication of how they’d run a MLB franchise, we’d surely be in good hands.

    Best Trademeister

    Ravenlord. Always thinking out of the box and always coming up with realistic scenarios. Much appreciated effort. Ditto for Red Leader.

    Best Discussion

    The Eric Milton signs thread. That was a long LONG thread that, in retrospect, became a key reference point that most likely turned a lot of folks on to how bad the Reds situation actually is.

    Worst Typist

    Eh. Who knows. No name for this one, but if someone posts without actually using paragraphs, that’ll trump simple typos for me.

    Funniest

    BCubb2003. His “Random Thoughts” threads are a Redszone staple that I look forward to every day.

    Best Use of Statistics

    M2. Always out-of-the-box and looking at things most folks wouldn’t notice. Ravenlord also deserves a mention because he’s the hardest working guy in show biz when it comes to using metrics. He's an innovator who’s willing to look at things backwards and upside down if it means there’s something to be learned.

    Most Long-winded

    Me. The next time I’m truly succinct will be the first. I used to think this award perennially belonged to GAC, but then I realized that he’s not really long-winded. He just uses more paragraphs than anyone else.

    Most Positive

    If you sat Krusty down in the middle of a large room full of horse crap, he’d immediately begin looking for the pony.

    Most Negative

    FCB. But it’s a realistic negativity rooted in reality and borne of recent Reds history.

    Nicest

    MWM. He’s the only person on the board that I can confirm will drive my drunk arse around, so it’s more of a “wins by default” thing than anything else.

    Best Moderator

    Everyone has done a great job under the new system, but I’m going to give this year’s award to Chip because his rundowns of the Hot Stove League radio show are an excellent contribution to the board and an immediate must-read.

    Best Chatter

    GAC. Like drinking beer at a bar while watching the game with a buddy.

    Most Off-Topic

    Any number of redundant Player X Sucks! threads. Oh, they’re technically “on-topic”, but you can bet that topic has been covered elsewhere.

    Best Newcomer

    Tie between Big Donkey and Joseph. One of the reasons Redszone is so great is that every once in a while you learn about what’s going on before anyone else. Big Donkey is a HUGE contributor to that and Joseph learned how to swim in the shark tank quicker than just about anyone ever.

    Best Outsider

    Stewie. And MattyMo is always a welcome read. And can someone please confirm that ramp hasn’t slit his wrists?

    The Marty Brennamen Award

    I’m going to just give props to the whole Reds Live board. Every game, there’s someone there to pick up the baton. Well done.

    The Old Red Guard Award

    Article: "Stats vs. Scouts: Do We Need to Choose Just One?". The whole thread.

    Best Historian

    WOY. If I were watching “Baseball- A Film by Ken Burns”, I’d want WOY sitting next to me so that I could ask him for accuracy checks.

    Lifetime Achievement Award

    traderumor. Incredibly passionate, articulate, and active. Even when disagreeing with tr, his positions force me to learn more about the topic.

    Most Tired Topic of the Year

    If I hear one more word about a recliner in the Reds clubhouse, I’ll break something.
