      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 .

Yeah okay... crazy It's my guess. He's had good streaks and never got past 13 since 2006. People thought he was gonna hit 20+ homeruns after that year but was hurt for sometime in the last two season.

He's 26 years old this year...an age when players often have a break out season. Of course, that usually correlates to a second or third full season. This will be Mauer's fifth full season. But I think we can expect a lot of those doubles he has hit in the past years to become home runs.

I think that - somewhat like Ichiro - he could hit a lot more home runs if he wanted to, but it would be at the expense of 20 to 30 points on his batting average.

20+ this year. At 6'5" and 230 lbs he should hit this year in and year out!!!

Guys, I dont think we are seeing a power surge. Have you seen his HRs? They BARELY got over the fence. Having said that, enjoy him for what he is. He is a high average hitter who gets on base, works the count and is overall the best or next to the best (Morny) hitter on the team and one of the best in the league. he may not hit for power and if he doesnt, I dont care.

So put a number on him for the year, if he focused on homers like some have said his BA would dip. Joe just wants to be the best hitter in the game. Just imagine him puffing his cheeks out at every fastball he sees wink

okay, my number is 14 blasts, 80 ribbies, .325. He missed a month of the season and has never been a big RBI guy.

Martinez will give him a run for his money on the all-star ballots!! He'll hit in the .330 range and have 17 dingers and 85 rbi's!!

there were talking the other night about whether mauer will have enough plate appearances to qualify for the batting title. what if he hits .400, would they use the same plate appearances threshold for it to count?

he will have the plate appearances as long as he stays healthy..... and I will venture to guess he will end at .337 16hrs and 82 rbi........I feel I over estimated on all 3 except for maybe the average but I would love to see him finish around these numbers.......
