      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 .

Morneau

Recommended Posts

Well, looking back at the first 3 pages of threads we have a Mauer, a Kubel, a Crede, a Cuddyer, a Delmon Young, a Baker, a Gomez, a Harris, and a (cough) Crain thread. I can't believe there isn't a fresh Morneau thread. This guy is on fire this year, and I have to say if it wasn't for the M and M boys, well, this team would be kind've boring. Since a few of us guessed how many homeruns Mauer will have at the end of the year, I figured we could guess for Morneau as well. He is currently second in the league with 12 homeruns, hitting .324 with 32 RBIs. At the rate he is going, he is projected to hit .324, 51 homeruns, and 136 RBIs. I'll guess 33 homeruns, the same as his jersey number. Over/Under 35 HR?

What do you guys think? Maybe another MVP season if the Twins can get it together and make the playoffs?

At the rate he's going 40 seems easy.

Isn't it a sickening thought that Morneau and Mauer both might end up in pinstripes someday....

I thought swearing wasnt allowed on this site.

Yeah, but keeping in tune with some of the other threads on here, wouldnt it be nice if Morneau got a homer every time? I mean really, he gets out more than he gets a hit. I wish he would not fly out as often as he does and he strikes out more than he walks. Just yesterday for example, he struck out LOOKING. Didnt even try and hit it. What the twins need is a first basement who never gets out. take that Negative Nellies!

Having said all that, Morny is prolly my favorite player with a very slight edge over Mauer.

kinda hard to do in baseball when you play 150+ games and bat 600+ times smile

I know that, I was poking fun at the other threads where people are criticizing Mauer and Crede.

Now look at Morny. He was up 5 times last nite and only got 4 hits. Not one of them was a homer either. What a bum!

struck out swinging...

Kind of hard to call those swings... all 3 of them gringringrin

bad at bat for an example, but I agree he is stud. If the Twins make the playoffs, he'll get serious consideration for MVP if his numbers hold steady. He did fade pretty bad last year. Both Morneau and Mauer are a couple of the best.

We should consider ourselves very lucky, not only do we have 2 of the top 10 players in baseball (Mauer and Morneau), we have two of the top ten nice guys in baseball.

I have a feeling these two will be around for quite a while in a Twins uni.

Mauer 31 HR

Mourneau 43 HR

His body is maturing, and there's some new found strength there. That combined with his sweet swing, will only lead to more homers. His homers so far this year, at least most of them, have been almost non-intentional ones. Those would have been fly outs last year. I really think Mauer should choose one at bat a game to swing for the fences. It's something that Mourneau seems to be doing these days.

I think it is very possible Mauer will hit 20-30 hr's this season at the rate he's going.

    • I am up next Wednesday... but I got a niece to get out prior to me... hopefully Sunday.  Thanks guys
    • In SD you can only buy one any weapon Black Hills tag in the spring.  There is a state-wide archery only tag that can be used out here as well.   Usually it is tough to get just one bird, so I don't buy an archery tag.   This year we planned on rock climbing after shooting turkeys, so we are kicking that off a little quicker than expected.   I do not believe it is possible to buy non-res over the counter tags, even though it is not a lottery, and buying online requires shipping to an address that takes a few days...   I also did not bring my bow, but if my uncle has a bow for me to use I might call game and fish to see if I can buy an archery tag in Rapid and hunt a bit each day before we go climbing.  
    • before...or after happy hour!!!!!!!!!
    • About as good as a day can get. Congrats to both of you. Your turn next pumper?
    • saw the first frog today!!!  
    • look caned turkey already!!!  
    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
    • Very productive day all around! 
    • Smile says it all. Good job Dad!
