    Boy, you leave for a few months ...

    None of these categories work for me, so I'll have to invent my own so I get the accolades I so richly deserve.

    Poster most likely to be a leading authority on the color beige:

    Thank you, thank you all.

    Ah shucks. Why, thank you, TC! I'm touched that you would think of me as "The Most Positive.' :o

    For the record: My last name IS NOT Lindner, Allen, or Bowden!

    Most positive: Now what did I do with those 2003 Word Series tickets for GAB, that guy sold me on E-Bay?

    Reds Storm, TC2, JaxRed - I miss their behind-the-scenes info.

    Best tag line

    savafan's line about statistics being made up on the spot.

    Most Valuable Poster

    Wow! there's too many! There are number of posters I enjoy reading for a number of reasons. I don't always agree with them and they don't with me, but I respect their views and am glad to have them as part of the "Zone." Others I agree with quite a bit. Still others always seem to bring a smile when I read their posts. ALL of them make me think! Some of my fav's are: savafan, Krusty, GM, M2, GAC, Raisor, The Teamsters, KittyDuran, Creek, Biitner Pill, guernsey, red-in-la, RFS62, and Randy in Charlotte. You ALL are MVP's in my book!

    Most Clever

    I'd give the edge to ChipR. Although remdog and KittyD can fire off a good zinger now and then.

    Best Armchair GM

    Any of our lady posters. All of us guys have too big of egos!

    PS: I probably would have voted for GAC for best Armchair GM, but since he already voted for me, I didn't want anyone acusing us of a vast religious right-winged conspiracy!

    Best Trademeister

    No one is better than the "King of the Slobberknocker," ole' Kruster, himself!

    Best Discussion

    Any juicy trade rumor gets my vote. If I had to pick one from 2002, it had to be the thread where we thought a trade was brewing between the Reds and Marlins last July. With all the inside information and conflicting reports, that was fun.

    Worst Typist

    id rath#r nought anser thqt Bcuz I doent want 2 0ffind anee-wun

    Best Use of Statistics

    Definitely my vote goers to west-of-you. Every time I get on one of my passionate outbursts, he has to drag facts and statistics into the discussion!

    Nicest

    savafan - even when he disagrees with you, you feel as if he respects you.

    Best Moderator

    Whaaat? Are you trying to get me banned from RedsZone? They all qualify as "best."

    Most missed poster

    Red Storm and CQ are the two guys I miss reading the most who used to contribute a lot. I also miss Spitball, Larkin Fan, TCII and Red Roser.




    Best tag line

    Team Caseyís ďI believedĒ, but I also love Savafanís ď42% of all satistics are made up on the spotĒ



    Best Moniker

    I loved Scrap Irony, and Biitner Pill is just as creative. Nothing like a little sour mash induced whimsey. Also, Spitball is a great name. Wish Iíd been smart enough to come up with something that clever.



    Most Valuable Poster

    Guernsey, in a landslide. Solid as a rock and always there. Probably the most balanced knowledge of baseball on the board, from the business side down to the most obscure prospects in any organization.



    Most Clever

    Chip and GAC. Chip does it with subtilty, GAC with sheer volume.




    Best Armchair GM

    Cincinnati Chili. A great guy with a tremendous grasp of the big picture. Iím also in the crowd that believes he would make a great baseball executive someday.




    Best Trademeister

    Krusty is the grandaddy of them all, but Scrappy (Iím still not used to calling him Biitner Pill) is close behind. Both are tireless rumor mongers, constantly searching the bottom of a liquor bottle to come up with creative ways to trade Juan Castro.




    Funniest

    Redsland. A wry wit and a tremendous writing ability. A great addition to the board.



    Best Use of Statistics

    WOY without a doubt. Iíve got the Sabremetric Encyclopedia too, but nobody wields it with such panache and common sense as WOY. Itís one thing to be able to look up statistics, but itís quite another to be able to use them in concert with his excellent knowledge of baseball.



    Most Positive

    I would have to say itís a tie between Creek, CQ, GAC, Team Casey, Team Boone, and McKenzie. And when I say most positive, I donít mean ďunrealistically positiveĒ. All of these posters know full well the weaknesses we have, but still take a positive attitude towards our future.




    Most Negative

    Well, FCB, although he has some stern competition. By the way, I love the way my deck came out. Thanks again to your son for all his efforts.




    Best Use of an Emoticon

    Web Scorpion, for exactly the reasons M2 so aptly stated.



    Nicest

    Bucksfan gets my vote here. A great guy and very knowledgible fan




    Additional special double secret probation honorable mention


    Best Writer


    A tie between M2, BCubb, and Redsland. All pros, so maybe they should be in a separate division. But I love watching a good wordsmith hammer out the prose. These guys are in a league of their own, and have the baseball knowledge to boot.

    Yep, that's how it works.

    Funniest Thread...

    ...had to be "12 wins from sainthood" with FCB wagering his firstborn if Jimmy gets to 14 wins - then having various members Redszone think of chores for the kid to do as Saint Don (as he is known now) neared sainthood...


    BTW Jimmy did get to 14 wins, but FCB last post on that thread was 5/31/02! How's the kid, FCB???

    I could be wrong. I thought Phil had changed his name along the way.

    Will the real Phil please stand up?
