WELCOME TO THE ROX WALK OFF SITE

Welcome to your new site for all-things-rockies.  I have many great and wonderful plans for this site and hope to get all of your thoughts and comments on the site itself, but most importantly, your thoughts on the Rockies!  Our conversations over at insideTheRockies.com have been amazing, and I really want those same comments to continue here with the same fervor, passion and excellent personal insight that we all have come to love reading.  With that in mind, I’ve created this site for us to keep the discussion alive.

As the new season approaches I will be adding several features to the site including an area for rating the top games of the year, live chat during the games, etc.  Soon I will have a link active for those of you that would like to post yourselves so we can have multiple points of view via personal posts.

As with any big/new project, the dust is still settling and there are things you might notice as being out of place…please don’t hesitate to put comments in this post thread giving me an idea of what doesn’t look right, would help if it was better, etc.  Even if you think I know, kick me your ideas.

Thanks in advance one and all for keeping the conversation going…

Great work Jardean! I know several have expressed there love for the old ITR site and how much we have enjoyed the community over the last three years. So here’s hoping that this site will be a success and around for many years for all of us to enjoy. Initial impreesion is the formay looks great, and the avatars seem to jump off the sreen which is really cool. I might have to get me an avatar just to keep… Read more »

Jardean, thanks a million. I didn’t always comment, but I always read the other site (and thanks to Steve, Jack and Tracy for their tremendous efforts on that site that was the foundation for this one). I’m happy there’s a place to go during the long off season and, now during those games when it’s nice to have some company for the misery. Hopefully this year the in game chatter will be about how well the Rockies are performing (there’s… Read more »

Thank you Jaredean. The site looks great and I am sure it will be just as popular with all of us. You have done a great job and I bow to your magnificence. Again, thanks for all your hard work in accomplishing this task. To Steve, Tracy, and Jack THANK YOU for running this site for the past 2+ years. It has been the one site I go to first thing in the morning and always has a tab open… Read more »

Does anyone know whether or not Jack will be contributing a monthly farm report in the future, whether on this site or elsewhere? Jack’s in depth Rockies minor league reporting was obviously very professional quality writing and something that I looked forward to each and every month.

Even if it had to be in a shorter version that would still be much appreciated.

oh wow, it looks like my gravatar was carried over from the ITR site. Great job Jaredean! You say pardon the dust?? It doesn’t look like it’s under construction – WOW!

Thanks to Steve, Jack, and Tracy for setting up the original ITR and allowing us to come together as a tight community. Props to Jaredean for setting up this new site to keep us a tight knit community. That’s a walk off home run!

WOW! This is beyond impressive. Although I was a daily reader of ITR, I was mostly a silent lurker. First, thank you very much Jack, Steve, Tracy and all the others that made ITR a wonderful community. Second, Jardean, bless you for taking on the huge job of moving an entire community. By the looks of the new location it appears that we all have “moved up” to the West Side with George Jefferson. Early in this moving process you… Read more »

You’re the man, Jaredean. I’m really, really looking forward to this! All of you guys are the best fans I’ve ever (not) known! We should have a get-together around a Rockies game this summer. I’d need advance notice to schedule a trip from back East, but it would be worth it to meet all of you personally.

Bob in WV – There was talk in an older thread on the subject of the Rox rookie team moving to Grand Junction that we could spend a weekend together for the GJ home games when the MLB Rox are out of town. So check out this thread before the ITR site shuts down. I’m sure we will bring this topic up again once 2012 season gets rolling.

rmh… Reserve the July 20-21-22(F-S-S) date(and any of you other RWOers)…the Rox are on the road and the GJR are home. A road trip becomes very possible as I will have access to the Rox Party Bus or a 46ft motorhome…bus holds 15, motorhome holds 8…additionally I have a suburban with third row seating so if only 6 of us(including myself)wants to commit we can take that vehicle. I’m going to go no matter what transpires and I’m guessing you… Read more »

I’m spending the month of March in Scottsdale again and look forward to hooking up with any of you that may be coming my way. I have extra tickets for some of the games if anyone wants(4th row directly in front of the Rox ondeck circle). RoxWalkOff readers… Read more »

Sure there might be some bugs here and there, but overall Jaredean – GREAT JOB! Already doing the some in depth research for my first “Sound Off” post Thanks!.

One thing I’d prefer to say is that often before obtaining more laptop or computer memory, look at the machine in which it will be installed. Should the machine can be running Windows XP, for instance, the memory ceiling is 3.25GB. Putting in greater than this would merely constitute some sort of waste. Make sure that one’s motherboard can handle the upgrade quantity, as well. Good blog post.

I believe in this metaphor, Jim Tracy is the OS (and unfortunately XP), the players are memory and the brothers Monfort are the motherboard. Carry on.

Ha! That is classic. The geek in me knew exactly what they were saying about RAM and the limitations of 32bit/64, etc. I love your analogy and wish I’d read it that way at first! I’m sure we could do a whole massive post comparing this team to a computer, but then it would melt into a Mac vs Windows (NL vs AL?) discussion and nobody wants that.

Or do they?

I wish the Rockies would pleasantly shock us with a pitching acquisition. Who? Beats me 🙂

Throughout this particular huge scheme regarding points you’ll get a great A good with regard to exertion and work. Where you truly sacrificed anyone was first in your own specs. You already know, men and women point out, the devil is at the important points… And it also could not possibly be far more accurate in this post. However, let me tell you everything that do function. The written text is usually incredibly potent and that is certainly probably the… Read more »

Your point is very difficult to argue. However, book or no book, one must wonder if the lack of experience in said situations causes it to become a self fulling prophecy. I would submit that if Jim Tracy were to head the suggestions from this internet he could simply rewrite his own book. Of course it is possible that I have misunderstood your core point.
