    2011 Postees Awards

    Time for the nominations.

    The Categories from past years (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 an 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!


    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.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Re: 2011 Postees Awards

    I started to fill this out and then realized there are too many great posters to simply put down a few names under most of the categories. This is just a too great a forum.

    Btw, the non-sports forum is the best place to get advice and information I've ever found.

    Re: 2011 Postees Awards

    I have a few nominations:

    Best Tag: Razor Shines. Anything that contains a quote from It's Always Sunny has gotta be gold.

    MVP: RMR. Several deserving candidates, though.

    Funniest: camisadelgolf

    Most long-winded: mth. Great content. I just wish he'd use less words.

    Emoticon: Heather, of course.

    Nicest: KittyDuran. Each one of us who attended a get-together during ST last year was treated to a little gift bag courtesy of Kitty. I found that to ridiculously thoughtful and nice.

    Mod: Chip

    Outsider: MattyMo. The Cardinals' organization is starting to border on unsufferable, but MattyMo can stick around as long as he likes.

    Marty Brenneman: RedsFanatic

    Historian: WOY. Duh.

    Also, I'd like to add another category: Best poster that doesn't post very much, or something like that. This type of poster doens't post very often, but you're thankful when (s)he does. Or, in other words, he OPSes 1.200 on the season, but only plays in 26 games. This nomination turned out to be a lot harder than I first thought, but for this award, I nominate IslandRed. Invariably spot-on accurate with a sense of humility and congeniality. My only complaint is that he doesn't post enough.

    I second the nomination of Island Red. Briefly.

    Most missed poster
    Falls City Beer. He drove me up the wall, but his absence is certainly the most noticeable.

    Best Moniker
    *BaseClogger* even with those stupid asterisks.

    Most Valuable Poster
    OBM. He's really on top of things.

    Most Clever
    BCubb2003 - Random Thoughts. Need I say more?

    Best Armchair GM
    We all suck.

    Best Trademeister
    RedLegSuperStar always seems to have something to say about trades involving the Reds.

    Best Discussion
    Anything comparing Jocketty and Krivsky. A lot has been revealed, but way too much time has been devoted to it. I get mad every time the subject comes up, but at the same time, I'm interested enough to read the posts anyway.

    Worst Typist
    Me when I'm drunk. Otherwise, this is the most articulate forum I've ever visited.

    Funniest
    Puffy cracks me up.

    Best Use of Statistics
    This is undoubtedly RedsManRick.

    Most Long-winded
    BetterRead

    Most Positive
    The sky is always falling on RedsZone.

    Most Negative
    Falls City Beer. His negativity transcends voting eligibility.

    Best Use of an Emoticon
    I loved this one: http://www.redszone.com/forums/showp...&postcount=117

    Nicest
    redsmetz

    Best Moderator
    Chip. He sometimes understands my humor even though it breaks the rules for moderators to have humor.

    Best Chatter
    redsfandan. I don't really think of him when it comes to the chat room, but he's always good for some banter.

    Most Off-Topic
    gm. He stays fairly pertinent, but he always alludes to crazy references that are out of left field (no pun intended).

    Best Newcomer
    cinreds21. I hope he sticks around.

    Best Outsider
    Does jojo count? Jk. MattyMo4Life. I hate to pick a Cardinals fan, but he earned it.

    The Marty Brennamen Award
    Redsfan320

    The Old Red Guard Award
    I need help with this one.

    Best Historian
    westofyou

    Lifetime Achievement Award
    OnBaseMachine

    Who has provided the most to Redszone for the duration of their time spent here?
    dougdirt

    Most Tired Topic of the Year
    Paul Janish and the whole discussion of his value and whether he should be the starter and how Dusty doesn't give him enough opportunity and . . .

    Moved from Nashville to LA for work in August or September I think. Traveling quite a bit.

    I hope work and life allows him to resurface as spring training gets here.

    Re: 2011 Postees Awards

    Thanks for the nominations, camis and TO. I really like doing pbp, and am itching to get back at it this spring.

    And nate's presence is certainly missed. I sent him a PM a couple months ago about doing PROject proJECT again this off-season, and never heard anything back. Hope he's doing well.

    Heather again.

    Best Moderator

    Who has provided the most to Redszone for the duration of their time spent here?
    I couldn't even begin to narrow that down to one person.

    Most Tired Topic of the Year
    Wayne vs. Walt. The Reds are winning, let's just be happy and sing songs around a campfire.

    Re: 2011 Postees Awards

    I don't have enough memory to go award by award...

    But I'll give shoutouts to dougdirt and Redsmanrick....both of those guys, while I may not always agree with them, are more than willing to back up their assertions and answer any questions asked with the numbers.

    Heather gets the nicest award from me.

    And yeah, I hope Nate comes back.

    Really a good group of posters here, looking forward to the season.

    Probably because I'm usually the most sober person in the chat room. Especially when GAC is in there with his Yuengling. lol



    Heather gets my vote for most positive.
