There are a few categories that I can make certain "lock" picks.
Best use of statistics: Westofyou, simply amazing. I don't know where you get them, but you get them and they are all very valid to every post they are inserted into.
Best trader: Krusty. Some of them are a little out there, but most I agree with. Just the pure volume of them is amazing, and none that I can remember as being way far out there.
Best discussion: The Jason LaRue discussion. I started a thread about a rumor my friend had told me about the Reds interest in Mario Ramos of the Rangers for Jason LaRue. It turned into one of the most fascinating posts I have ever read, full of M2, cincinnati chili, ScrapIrony, princeton, and gm's wonderful writing and of course, westofyou's statistics. Simply an awesome read.
Most missed poster: Team Clark and RedStorm
Most valuable poster: I agree that guernsey is the engine to this forum, but so, so many of you contribute great information, perspectives, and opinions. That is what I truly love about this site, and is a big reason why I can't stop myself from logging in every day.
Funniest / Most Clever: ChipR, I always find his responses humorous for some reason. Although, he is facing some stiff competition.
The "I don't know what to give you but you deserve an award":
remdog. I always like reading your posts as well, and felt I needed to special mention you somehow.
All in all, I would like to thank each and everyone of you for enlightening me on so many things that I wouldn't have had the priveledge of knowing without you. As I said earlier, so many of you contribute to making this such a wonderful site to visit. Moderators: You deserve the lifetime achievement award for making this place such a great place to visit, and keeping it up despite all of the other responsibilities in your lives. I hope to add more in my second season here on Redszone, and also am looking forward to everything I've witnessed in the last year thoughout my now 889+ post. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you. May God bless each and everyone of you.
I forgot to give myself the award for most edited posts. I seem to edit every post I make for spelling or to add things that I forgot to mention the first time ( like this)
