    Fifth Annual Redszone Postees Awards

    Time for the nominations.

    The Categories from last year (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 and 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!

    And, I submit for new awards this year:

    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.
    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    Most Valuable Poster: probably M2, though I find Doc Scott and Johnny Footstool right up there.

    Most Clever: FCB. hands down. A sardonic wit.

    Best Armchair GM: A bizarre amalgamation of SteelSD and Team Clark

    Best Discussion: "The Trade"

    Funniest: Puffy with an honorable mention to Raisor.

    Most missed

    If you hang around long enough, this gets to be a long list. I miss creek a ton. I've been Jonesing to hear from Big Donkey for almost a year now. I keep hoping Steve4192 and RosieRed have new handles and that I'm just enjoying their stuff under different monickers, because they were two must-reads for me. I keep hoping that Red Storm or N.E.R.F. (New England Reds Fan) will re-emerge someday. And, of late, I really miss Steel.

    Best monicker

    Gandalf the Red, though I'm partial to Dunnomite as well

    Most Valuable Poster

    Cyclone's had a superhuman year. He's kicked us all up a notch.

    Most Clever/funniest

    Puffy, he's been quiptastic in 2006.

    Best Armchair GM

    Red Leader (and I'm sure Puffy will have something clever to say about that), RL habitually offers up good ideas and interesting perspectives.

    Best discussion

    The Redszone mock draft was a blast. Among other things, it helped identify just who in the heck all those draft prospects were.

    Best use of statistics

    Steel, he did fabulous job of demonstrating the effect of the Reds' big summer move.

    Best newcomer

    Ltlabner with shout outs to mth123, dabvu, Always Red, edabbs, Redsmetz and dougdirt

    Lifetime achievement

    WOY - historian, stats wiz and bon vivant extraordinaire
    Baseball isn't a magic trick ... it doesn't get spoiled if you figure out how it works. - gonelong

    posts by TeamClark and WoY are much fun. FCB is such powerful medicine that I can only swallow small doses. RFS62 and TeamClark show wonderful sportsmanship.

    It's not like anyone takes these seriously. It's just a way to have a little bit of fun for everyone who spends way too many work hours checking the site to see if the Reds have traded for another soft-tossing lefty.

    Oh dear Lord. I'm too much of a ego manaic, and I don't own a pair of leather pants, so I'm probably not qualified.

    Well, except for the ego manaic thing.

    Re: Fifth Annual Redszone Postees Awards

    This is my first year hear at RZ so I don't feal right about commenting on some of these topics. However, here are my thoughts on some of them.....

    Best tag line I really liked Kitty's won/loss tag line.

    Best Moniker Harangatang

    Most Valuable Poster WOY. Honerable mentions to Cyclone, RFS52, GAC, Spitball and RedsManRick

    Most Clever Heath. Honorable mention to Johnny Footstool. I rarely agree with him, but he always makes me think, often times has a funny quip an I like his avitar.

    Best Armchair GM All of Redszone rolled into one. I'm not copping out, but I've never been part of a forum with so many people with the singular focus of enjoying the Reds. The combination of the many skillsets here would make a killer GM.

    Best Trademeister Well, the most active would be Krusty.

    Best Discussion There was a thread about "the trade" a few days after it happened. People disagreed but it was an even, educational and eye opening discussion. I enjoyed it very much.

    Worst Typist Sorry, Captian Morgan but sometimes I have no idea what you are posting. Honorable mention to.....myself. I am a horrible typist and speller.

    Best Use of Statistics Cyclone.

    Most Long-winded GAC, you are the man! Course, I can go on and on myself so I can't point the finger too much

    Most Positive Redsmetz. Always chears me up.

    Most Negative Sorry, FCB, but you get my vote. I respect your insights and appricate that you challenge my thinking, but somedays I think you could depress the entire Hallmark card writing team (except the condollences department, of course).

    Best Use of an Emoticon Traderumor is pretty fond of them. (BTW - how do you get that "throwing up" icon?)

    Nicest Many too choose from: Redsmetz, RFS, dman, GAC, Cyclone, Kitty, all of "the teams", Matt700wlw, Redsfanalways1966.

    Best Moderator Paintmered.

    Best Chatter Sorry, but I can't pick one. There was a great crew in the chat room last season. I spent many nights while traveling on business chatting away with Kitty, GAC, Strikes out Looking, Dabvu, Nate, Ridersin, GainesvilleRed, and I know I'm forgetting many others. Thanks guys for making my borning nights much more tollerable.

    The Old Red Guard Award The thread about Cory Lidles plane crash is a moment(s) in time that I will never forget. Lots of people were chipping in bits of information as the story was unfolding then the horrible news came across.

    Best Historian WOY

    Lifetime Achievement Award Not sure I should vote since I haven't been around long. I will say that M2 and WOY are two that have always expanded my knowledge and forced me to think about what I was posting.

    Most Tired Topic of the Year While there were some great conversations about it, frankly, "the trade" has about run its course with me. An honorable mention to any trade proposal concerning Adam Dunn

    People I'm glad came over from Cincinnati.com this year Jimbo and Terminator came over from Cincinnati.com around the same time I did (Terminator a little sooner, I think). Anyway, glad they made it over. There might be more of you out there, but those are two folks I knew over there.

    Re: Fifth Annual Redszone Postees Awards

    I'm not going to vote on most of these because there are a lot people here who add a lot to this board, and I know I'd leave someone out and kick myself later. But I do have to vote on Best Moniker, because every time I see the name Javy Pornstache it makes me chuckle! And I want to say the Rookie of the Year would be impossible to decide, because we've added a number of wonderful posters this year.

    It may seem unfathomable, but I'm generally an incredibly cheery guy in my "real" life.

    No need to apologize for calling me a pessimist. I'm not dying, y'all.
