      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 .

That game is exactly what we brought him in for, all the negative nancies that have been all over him thus far, will be on the bandwagon soon

He has been FAR from good, come on... I watched the game last night yes it was a great way to end, but the guy is hitting .220 ish...Not that he has ever hit for a high avg but he has some pretty dang good talent around him right now. Lets face it he falls into the same mold as Jay Buhner, Rob Deer (not as many K's), and dare I say Tom Brunansky!

That would be nice, I wish we would have rolled the dice right away and offered a deal longterm and hope to work out a Twins deal. Now, if he puts up numbers again and stays healthy, we just got out-bidded.

I think Crede gives us a solid 3rd bag and is a below 300 avg but can give you 20+hrs and that is needed in our line-up

Pier, I am just saying we could have got him cheap. If he has an average year for him and stays healthy, then he is goin to see green.

He just had another clutch hit in the bottom of the 7th today.

If he continues to go 1-3 or 1-4 but the hits come at clutch times with runners in scoring position I'm fine with him. He's better then anything else we've been running out at 3rd the last few years.

I am not getting crazy....I already am...but that is besides the point.....the guy is a good 3 bag and has a lively stick.....what other options do we have and how long have we been looking for a good 3 bag and a little more power in the line-up?? I think he fills both voids for our ball club

I find this conversation funny. Problem with Crede is he doesnt hit for a high enough average. problem with Mauer on another thread is he doesnt have enough power. Apparently, unless we field an entire team of Morneau's and Pujol's, we will suck. Guys, you only have a handful of players IN ALL OF BASEBALL that can hit for power AND average.

My take: Mauer is as good as you are gonna get at catcher. Enjoy him for what he is. Crede is the best 3B since Koskie. Enjoy not having a guy over there on pace for a 2 or 3 homer season like we had the last few years.

With some of these guys, the Twins could be in 1st place by 20 games and be nr 1 in all categories, and they would find something to complain about!! shockedshockedshocked

the bullpen is still there, so, no we dont have to FIND something to complain about. and after reading the sentence I just typed that leaves the Twins out for being up by 20 games. they have the stick potential and starting hurlers, but the pen is horrible (joe nathan, your excused from all bullpen talk!)

Twins would be very wise to extend and sign Crede to a multi-year contract. Highly incentivized if they could -- otherwise just take a chance on him staying healthy. He's a solid player who seems to fit into what the Twins have been building on for a long time.

Man it's nice to see him hitting home runs for us, instead of against us. Now we just need to get some guys on base when He comes to the plate.

    • A bit off subject and I love firing up the smoker for a little meat centric voodoo as much as anyone but time and seasoning costs money and sometimes I find that by the time you buy everything we use to bring,inject,rub,produce and trap the smoke and otherwise cover these lesser cuts to make them taste right we could have had a nice steak on a grill.  
    • I'd love to show these pics to my wife but if I did, she'd just throw our house away!  Excellent project!  Well done. 
    • Went to Ely yesterday to winterize ours and replace the vent domes.  I looked closer at the caulking in various areas and wasn't comfortable with what I was seeing, plus it really needed a pressure washing.  I'm pretty sure the water heater is on the fritz too.  Hooked it to the truck and hauled it home for service.  A 40 foot box in yesterday's wind and rain for 4 hours was interesting but I'm glad I can get everything taken care of that I've been wanting to change and just bring it back up in the spring, ready for fun.
    • Looks great, but LRG has a basement window in his.
    • Takes a shot of cure to get that ring, if you don't have a source of carbon monoxide to mess with the enzymes////
    • I like the galvanized tin!
    • Looks awesome, great smoke ring. Was it a little more tender this go around?
    • You sir, did a great job! Enjoy your house... 
    • Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them?
