    Wheels. It's a great name. Simple, to the point and easy to remember.

    Funniest Poster

    I've done alot of thinking about this one, because there are so many one liners thrown around here every day, but in the end I had to go back to Wheels. He's always there with a zinger when the chips are down.

    Most Informative

    Wheels. Hands down. I continue to be amazed by the depth of his insight. He's taught me everything I know.

    Most Missed Poster

    Gotta be Red Storm. No other poster has understood Wheels, and what he brings to the board more than Red Storm.

    Most Valuable Poster

    Wheels in a landslide. Others simply add broth to the soup, Wheels is everything else that I chew on.

    If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't be here.

    Worst Typist

    I can't answer that one. I just spend to much reading Wheels' material, which is always well written and gramatically correct.

    No, it's just some "harpie' that has a crush on him and thinks Wheels has been sending out "coded" messages through his posts. There may be a restraining order involved but that's really none of my business.....

    OTOH, Tom Lawless Fan does have some good points........

    Yep that's it ORH. Thanks for finding the link. I bookmarked it for safe keeping. It was great story and my appologies for not remembering it correctly. Come to think of it, I've got a library book due....

    Re: Fourth Annual Redszone Postees Awards

    Heck, most of the posts here are valuable, and I appreciate you all so it's hard for me to give out awards about this and that.

    I will say that Red Storm or Stormy--your pick, is the most missed poster. His insight about Reds baeball was second to none. Come back, Stormy!

    And Old Right Hander's story about leaving the game early and going to jail for an overdue book was absolutely one of the finest stories ever posted here.

    I'll leave it at that and look forward to the 2006 season where there has to be a better ending than this year.

    He better be back by the new season, or I'm sending Krono out to find him.


    Most Valuable Poster

    Steel in a landslide. The big jerk.



    Best Armchair GM

    M2. Actually uses logic and stuff. He's probably a snappy dresser too.


    Best Discussion

    Any of the stat discussions that didn't break down into a slugfest.
    wait.
    nevermind.



    Funniest

    Creek. Creek is the AYATOLLAH OF ROCK AND ROLLA!

    Best Use of Statistics

    Steel. He makes my head hurt, but then, I get to steal all his best stuff and use it as my own elsewhere.
    It's not "stealing" actually, it's "sampling".

    Most Long-winded

    Stormy. Why say something in two words when you can say it in 200? Especially when it's so well written.





    Best Use of an Emoticon

    Krono. Duh.

    But as for "sampling", I've always felt that Raisor and Vanilla Ice had a lot in common.

    Speaking of Krusty, I could really use him the next time I go shopping for a car. That leads me to ask the question, Krusty, have you ever been taken on a deal???? It just seems that you would have a natural knack for bartering.
