      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Harris?

Recommended Posts

Am I the only one who would like to see Harris play more? Last night he had another great game, 3 for 5 with 2 runs scored and an RBI. Plus he can sure rocket the ball to first from short!

I think he should be playing right now while Casilla is struggling. Move Punto over to 2b for awhile and work Casilla in there sparingly until he gets his stroke going.

It would be nice to do that, but I bet Punto would whine and cry about it. Gardy never should have said he would be the starting short stop.

The Twins are facing 3 starting right handers this weekend against the Royals. I still think they should take out Casilla at 2nd and replace him with Harris for 2 of the 3 games this series. Harris is hitting too good right now to be sitting on the pine behind a struggling Casilla. I hope Casilla and some of the others that are stuggling can turn it around quickly.

They better win tonight against the Pontoon!

That is an unwarranted shot at Punto. Has he ever whined about anything?? The guy does everything thats asked of him and plays his a$$ off no matter what his role is. Punto is a team player. Harris does need to play with his hot stick - Mauer can bat second and put Harris down in the order. Bat Harris eighth and Punto ninth.

Enough of Punto Already, get Harris in at short! Punto is an automatic out when he gets up to bat. He saves more runs for us than he gives up my a$$!

I'd have to agree with you. From what I've seen, it's not like Harris' defense is that much worse if at all than Punto's. Sure, Harris can't hit like some of the guys in the lineup, but he sure can hit better than punto. His arm is also quite a bit stronger than Punto's from what I've seen. He would make a better all around shortstop for the team IMO.

I too would like to see Harris play more. I do not believe that Punto is in fact a switch hitter. Many American league pitchers could hit .143. That is Nick's batting average against left handers when he bats right handed. He's hitting a whopping .209 batting at his best, left handed. He is not a switch hitter. The Twins should platoon Harris & Punto at SS.

Harris just made a nice play, with a lot of help from Morneau. Throw was in the dirt, but one out of 10 aint bad!

Harris had an all around good night, went 2-4 with that great play you mentioned.

Said it on a different thread on here, but to me Harris has been the only bright spot of that trade with the Rays so far.

That is true. Delmon showed signs of great hitting last year, but so far this year he hasn't found it.

Hopefully every position player will start doing decent, so the Twins can have some leverage in a trade for a reliever. I would like to see Kubel pick it up a little, he really slowed down throughout May. Some people just have streaks.

    • For gills when using live bait st croix spring bobber rods. for gills and crappie when using plastics I use the snitch. for perch and eyes croxton pond rods in light to med/light   I have about 36 ice set ups but I getting rid    Of some  
    • I love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye.
