THE BURT AWARDS – DAY FOUR: VOTE FOR #THEBURTS
It’s Day Four of The Burts and we have five more categories for your voting pleasure!
If you’ve missed the last few days of ballots, you can catch up HERE, HERE and HERE….and feel free to vote as many times and as often as you’d like. (We run old Chicago-style elections here on Better Off Red).
Without further ado, let’s get started…
The first category of Day Four of the Burts is “Off-the-Field MVP.” The Reds roster is filled with lots of guys who demonstrate class and benevolence on and off the field, whether it be with charity, appearances or simple accessibilty. Who’s your choice for 2012 off-the-field MVP? Last year, it was Brandon Phillips with 38% of the vote.
Next is “Great Red Hope for 2013.” This one is very much open to interpretation. There are several random nominees for this category; some coming off a less-than-ideal season or injury, some are blue-chip prospects that might be able to help the club next season, etc. It’s up to you to decide, of the nominees, who carries the most “hope” into 2013. Last year, Zack Cozart won the Burt with 39% of the vote.
Our third category is “Best Special Event of 2012.” It was a busy year for our Reds staff, especially the Entertainment and Productions and Promotional Events departments. Several really cool Reds events took place in 2012. Which was your favorite? Last year Redsfest took home the award with 48% of the vote.
Next is “Performance of the Year.” Several of our Redlegs had some truly memorable individual performances, but the following nominees had games that really stood out among the rest. Which one was the best? This category is new to 2012.
The final category of Day Four is a fun one: “Best Nickname.” “The Cuban Missile” Aroldis Chapman is the reigning champ as he took 33% of the vote in 2011. He’s once again on the ballot this year.
Now that you’ve voted, feel free to discuss all things “Burt Awards” in the comments section of this post or on Twitter using the hashtag #TheBurts.
Be sure to tune in tomorrow as we reveal the fifth and final day of categories and nominees!
Your vote counts!
