    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???

    Hmmmm! There is so much optimism on this forum, that this is a tough one


    Most Negative

    I give the Schleprock award to IBCK

    Nicest

    TeamCasey. She's "Ringo" to the rest of us "John, Paul & George's". And also savafan too.

    Most Missed

    rfs62. Someone told this poor guy that he had to stay off the forum for 5 years in order to be eligible for the HOF :evilgrin:

    I'd list Larkinfan a very close 2nd

    Most Long Winded

    No contest!... ME! No one could ever say that I'm man of few words (just ask my kids!)

    M2 (in a positive way though. Like to read his posts)

    Best Moderator

    (flipping a coin)... Today's your lucky day Chip! Of course I'm using a two-headed coin

    Best Trademeister

    Duh! Who uses that under their name? But I don't know if the word "best" should be included. But Krusty is imaginative and a joy to read.

    Best Armchair GM

    MikeS21. he makes too much sense when it comes to the business/economic angle of MLB. And I find myself agreeing with him alot (which probably scares alot on here)

    Best Use of Statistics

    Anyone but me . Guys Like guernsey, M2, westofyou, and letsgojunior impress me alot. They have to be making it all up as they go along!

    Most Valuable Poster

    guernsey

    Gee, that's a toss up. It's either the myriad discussions on Jr (are we going to trade him or not?)... or me trying to convert Dom Hefner, and keep this poor soul from burning in a lake of fire and brimstone :evilgrin:

    the clique (Spanky, Alfafa, Mickey, Darla, Butch and Stymie). Throw in Al Bundy (and a few beers)...what game?

    I think we should also nominate someone for the "George Constanza" award

    Stormy. Though REDREAD, JaxRed and TC II would merit a lot of consideration if it they each hadn't popped up for air in recent weeks. I'm hoping for the return of Blondebleacherite also, one of the funniest posters we've ever had.

    Best tag line

    TeamCasey - "I believed"

    Best Monicker

    Biitner Pill, honorable mention to TC's UnderDunn. We've also got posters named CloudyListon and Cincinnatus from whom we rarely hear.

    Most Valuable Poster

    guernsey, he's the best baseball news service on the planet.

    Most Clever

    Chip R, a master of quiet sarcasm.

    Best Armchair GM

    cincinnati chili, and let's hope someday he gets to move out of the armchair and into an actual GM job.

    Best Trademeister

    Krusty, volume counts.

    Best Discussion

    I've really enjoyed the debates about the plusses and minuses of Jason LaRue. I've probably learned more from investigating that topic than anything else in the baseball-related universe over the past year.

    Worst Typist

    Unless you want to name this the "Geo J Achievement in Haphazard Typing Award" my vote goes to geo j.

    Funniest

    creek, she puts a comic gem in pretty much every post she makes. Doesn't rely on a single comedic device either.

    Best Use of Statistics

    WOY, Fastest spreadsheet in the West.

    Most Long-winded

    GAC. Don't feel right voting for myself. Considered FLOTG. Stormy probably deserves to have this award named after him.

    Most Positive

    MikeS21. I disagree with Mike a lot. It invariably happens when I'm being negative. He really does look for the best possible outcome for the Reds in any possible situation and argues forcefully that good can emerge from many situations that seem irretreivably bleak.

    Most Negative

    FCB. Is there even a question on this one?

    Best Use of an Emoticon

    Web Scorpion. Hasn't flexed as much muscle in this area as previous years, but has the ability to move off the palette of 25 pre-selected emoticons and deliver a haymaker. TC's also quite the emoticon innovator.

    Nicest

    savafan, a constantly pleasant fellow.

    Best Moderator

    There is no "I" in team.

    And a few extra awards for the folks at home:

    The Brevity is the Soul of Wit Award

    gm, says more in a sentence than most do in a book.

    Poster You Want on Your Side in an Argument

    WOY, not only does he carry that big statistical hammer, the guy can write a zinger with the best of them.

    The Dave Concepcion Dignity in Posting Award

    RFS62, if we had to send a poster to a hostile board to negotiate a cease-fire, he'd be the clear choice. Neither a hawk nor a dove, but always respectful and respected. 15fan also deserves serious consideration for this award.

    4-H Award

    princeton, always looking after the farm.

    Best Non-Reds Fan

    ramp, we could use more like him. SwampTurkey's also quite a nice resource to have around.

    Rookie of the Year

    Red Heeler, his Jose Contreras idea cinched my vote. Red Leader joined December, 2001 and I arbitrarily picked a 2002 cutoff for this one. PuffyPig/PiggyPuff/Puffy also had a fabulous first year on the board.

    Poster Emeritus

    Old Reds Guard, has seen the rise and fall of this franchise more times than most of us can begin to appreciate. Saw Bucky Walters convert from 3B to the best pitcher in baseball and can measure the effect of a leadoff hitter against the accomplishments of Billy Werber. I can only hope that in 40+ plus years I've been able to attain the same quality of baseball knowledge and wisdom.

    Best Continuing Installment

    Doc Scott's Trade Scorecard without a doubt.

    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

    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."
    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.

    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.

    I know my most missed vote would be split between 37Red, LarkinFan, Phil in BG, and CougarQuest. RFS62 and Wetzel also need to come around more often.

    So if I come build you a deck, or paint your house, can I garner some more votes somehow? slave laborer :evilgrin:

    And I'd have to add WVRedsfan to that category of "Nicest".

    And I couldn't agree more. I miss reading CQ's posts on the forum.

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

    Will the real Phil please stand up?

    Most missed poster: Jax and Redread don't post enough

    Most Valuable Poster: guernsey, but not because he posts everything-- Hand did that. The guy keeps us geniuses honest by keeping track of some fearless predictions gone wrong.

    Most Clever: M2 can think against the grain

    Best Armchair GM : Toot, toot!
    But I'll also say that 15Fan has a great appreciation for the economics, which is much of the battle these days.

    Best Trademeister: Krusty, I wish that you were the Cards' GM

    Best Discussion: who's the closer?

    Worst Typist: you the man, geo

    Funniest: gm, in an understated way. But I wouldn't want to get on the bad side of WoY.

    *face blushes and I stand up quickly, walking to the stage. Trips and falls, and has a seizure for about 5 minutes. Finally gets back up and walks to the microphone.....*

    OMG I never expected to win! I should have prepared a speech. Well, here goes. I gladly accept the Most Negative, for I have worked all year long, many late night posting, but I did what I had to do, and now that I have the Most Negative Award, I would like to first of all, thank god. Without God, I wouldn't have been able to have the energy to post negative and terrible things. Thank you so much God. I would like to thank my parents for making love several times to reproduce me, without that I wouldn't be here today either. Next off I would like to thank my agent Peter Pinklepopper, you're the best Pete. Also, thanks to the Redszoners. Krusty for his name which would often make me go into violent fits and walk along the streets beating homeless people with whiffle ball bats. All the moderators and I think you know why Creek for her daily poll that she used to run purposely angering me to the point that I would once again, take it out on the homeless people. WOY for disrespecting every post he can, and never having an actual argument other than his stats(he's probably going to reply with the stats on how many times he's argued without using stats, or maybe he'll think I'll do that, so he'll make an argument about how many times I've used stats, no, he'll probably just post some random stat so my head will burst so I will go take it out on the homeless again, yea thats what he'll do, I KNOW YOU WOY YOU CAN'T GET IN MY HEAD !! HAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!)




    uhh, where was I? Oh yeah, I was complaining. But seriously, thanks for the award I'll cherish it forever.
