The SB Nation Awards are going to be a bit different this year. There are a variety of categories that we'll run this week, showing off a handful of nominees for each. You, the dear reader, will then vote on these nominees to determine which of them will be finalists for the award in their respective category. Today, we're looking for the funniest moment of the Red Sox season. I know, I know, it might feel like 2014 was bereft of humor, but a look back at some of the year's more hilarious happenings will remind you that this just isn't the case.
So, check out the nominees below, then vote in the poll at the end for your favorite. The winner will go up against the comical victor from every other SB Nation team site in front of our committee of SB Nation MLB judges, which probably includes me now that I think about it.

Try throwing strikes next time, then it won't be a big deal.

It's a shame people gave her hell for this, because it was as hilarious as it was innocent.
