In the wake of the Campana DFA'ing, I am officially creating The Ryan theriot Is Only The greatest cub ever (Riot) Award.

This prestigeous award is to honor the Cubs player that has the highest sCRAP+ rating each year amongst Cubs fans. As such the qualifications are as follows:

1. The player need not be on any part of the Cubs roster. This includes 25-, 40-man, any affiliate, DL or anything else.
2. Maximum height for the award is 6' 1", unless someone qualifies for the award and is above this height.
3. The player must be nominated.

Nomination:
1. Automatic disqualifcation shall occur if the player's nomination submission contains any of the following words:
Hall of Fame, All-Star, skilled, above-average talent, multiple tools
2. Judging shall occur on the following words
Heart, Hustle, Game-changing, effort, not yet given his chance, winning, knowledge of winning, clutch, plays the game the right way

We are looking for award winners in the past. Took out seeking nominations for 2014 as that's already being covered.

Let the Nominations Begin and May the sCRAP be in your Ferver!

I am assuming you left off Ryan Theriot, because he is the obvious choice for number 1. So what we are really debating here is who is number 2 from the years 2005-2010.

I'd like to add Jake Fox

Yes, I intentionally left off Theriot. Awards are never actually given to the person they are named after (unless it is the first time it's been awarded). Plus they are normally named after them posthumously.

I forgot about Fox. The original Lahair.

What about Koyie Hill? He is 6'1 and there were people who for a while said he wasn't given his chance and that he played the game the right way (believe me, I have heard this). And come on, where has all star and highly skilled been synonomous with Hill?

So what you are saying, is, that Ryan should be the award? Well shoot, I may just have to throw my hat into the ring.
