      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 .

Peavy to White Sox?

Recommended Posts

The Padres and White Sox have agreed on the terms of a potential trade that would send All-Star right-hander Jake Peavy to Chicago, two sources told MLB.com on Thursday, and the ball is now in Peavy's court.

Peavy, who has a no-trade clause and must approve any deal, reportedly met with Padres manager Bud Black after Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Giants to discuss the White Sox interest in the Padres ace, according to a report in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

"I only know what you guys know," Peavy said late Wednesday when asked about a potential deal.

Peavy has stated that his intention is to remain in San Diego and it is believed that if he were to agree to a trade, his preference is to remain in the National League.

The 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner is in his eighth Major League season. He has spent all of those with the Padres and has a career record of 89-67 with a 3.21 ERA. He is 3-5 with a 3.82 ERA in nine starts this season.

Two players believed to be in deal are left-handers Clayton Richard and Aaron Poreda, a first-round Draft pick in 2007 who would be the kind of front-line starter the Padres would desire.

Richard, 25, has no record and a 4.33 ERA in 14 appearances for the Sox this season, including two starts. Poreda, 22, is 3-4 with a 2.53 ERA in eight starts for Double-A Birmingham. He has allowed just 32 hits and struck out 50 in 46 1/3 innings.

A considerable part of any trade negotiations could be the money remaining on the contract Peavy signed in December 2007.

Peavy, who is making $11 million this season, will make $15 million in 2010, $16 million in 2011 and $17 million in 2012. The Padres hold a team option for $22 million with a $4 million buyout.

The White Sox are 17-22 and in fourth place in the AL Central, but are only 5 1/2 games out and are looking to improve. Their GM, Kenny Williams, has shown himself to be aggressive in acquiring players. Current White Sox he acquired include pitchers John Danks and Gavin Floyd and outfielder Carlos Quentin.

Danks came from the Rangers and won 12 games last season. Floyd, who came from the Phillies in a 2007 deal for Freddy Garcia, won 17 games. And Quentin hit 36 home runs after arriving from the Diamondbacks in a minor deal.

Peavy was nearly traded in last offseason to the Cubs, who pulled the plug on a potential deal at the Winter Meetings in December. The Padres were actively shopping Peavy because they were trying to shed payroll to get close to the $40 million mark targeted by club chairman John Moores.

Peavy is is coming off a complete-game victory Sunday over the Reds in which he allowed one run with eight strikeouts and no walks. He threw a career-high 92 strikes in that game, against 29 balls.

an upgrade for sure. I don't think he's quite 2007 form, but he's now the K leader in the NL.

full no trade clause and has said in the past that he wants no part of the AL

He will prolly veto the sox due to cellular field. We could throw Cuddy at em, Giles is hitting .166 and the youngster they brought up isnt much better. Cuddy's 8 mill vs. Peaveys 11.....just a thought.

Ahhh I hope those big dollars the White Sox are ABLE to pay him don't cloud his memory in that case. The Twins couldn't afford him, if they could they would still have Santana. Oh no not the Cuddy argument again.

You can't tell me if we want to contend we need a TRUE number 1 pitcher. Right now we do not have anything close to that.

Cuddyer 8 Mill to roll out 6 days a week 9 innings vs 11 mil to a pitcher to throw 6-7 innings 2 times a week. Makes perfect sense.

Peavy also talked with White Sox reliever Scott Linebrink, a friend of the National League Cy Young Award winner and teammate from 2003-07. Linebrink said that Peavy asked very pointed and direct questions during their Wednesday afternoon conversation, but left the chances of Peavy coming to the White Sox at 50-50 when Linebrink spoke with the media Thursday.

"I don't know," Linebrink said. "I couldn't say one way or the other. It's his decision. It's his family. He has to do what's best for them. I would say that given the trades that have not come to fruition, he's kind of running out of spots to go. This may be a chance for him to get out of San Diego.

Peavy turned it down because the Cell would have exposed him. Peavy's numbers are largely due to Petco. He wants nothing to do with the AL and the DH as well as having to pitch in a hitters park

would you want to leave sunny San Diego and bikini bodies to go to Chicago.....doubt it.

I think he didn't want anything to do with the designated hitters in the AL. He is just another gutless National League pitcher who would rather stay with a team that lost 100 games last year as long as he can pad his stats and keep the paycheck rolling in by pitching in the Grand Canyon that the Padres play in. Just goes to show that the real league is the American League!

He didn't want anything to do with the trade because PYRSINSKI.

Ha LOL.

Who would?

The guy still bleaches his hair too. I guess he didn't want to copy Alex Rodriguez and get his hair frosted. Freakin fruit cakes!

    • Yup so far this season would have had 2 nice ones with a shotgun I just keep telling myself archery is life lol
    • Doesn't get any better than that. Pic says it all. Congrats  
    • Well not the most attractive option but when the kids are out playing in the sprinkler you could get a roll of nonslip pool matting to roll out then put in the garage during the fall-winter? 
    •   OK, then how about stripping the sealer if that is what makes it slippery.   After a few years it really isn't necessary, since the concrete is mostly cured by then (yeah it keeps curing for decades but most of it is done in a year or two).     I guess if you like the glossy look then maybe the sand in the sealer thing is worth a try.
    • Season ended just like I thought it would and happy Leipold held true to his word and moved on from Fletcher...he did some good things but overall did a poor job building a team that can compete at a high level unfortunately.  It will be interesting to see how the new GM handles this situation...getting rid of under-performers will not be easy and what in return? Going to be one of those down before heading back up deals. Coyle will be the first to go IMO, Granny can go as far as I'm concerned...gotta sign Zucker even though he was terrible in the playoffs, Nino is a question mark, Staal might need to go with the up year he had but long in the tooth and now would be the only time to get anything for him, Ennis (terrible player) will be bought out, Foligno (terrible) probably not tradeable with his contract...enjoy the ride Wild fans!
    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity.
