      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 .

Could make the worst hitting team in Baseball look like the yanks. No shock that Perkins was the one to puke on his shoes today, but 1 inning? Come on guys, Its the A's!!!!!!!

Is it time to be sellers? What can we get for whom? I just don't know...

Just another frustrated fan....

Wait wait wait. 2 months ago we beat the White Sox by TWENTY. It was one game. Glad some of you guys aren't on a nuclear sub with their fingers on the button. ICBMs would be flying everywhere.

No doubt we have some serious needs to address, but don't jump off the bandwagon yet, still a long way to go. We have been worse off at same point in the year and came through. Remember- Royals vs Tigers, last game of the season???? Seen wierder things

I am not off the bandwagon by any means. Just frustrated with the last few games. It just seems that when it rains it poors and the twins forgot to pack the rain gear. HIT THE DARN BALL!!!!! Last I checked, that was your job. The 3 games with Oakland should have been gimmies and we botched 'em. Not only that, but admit to having a bad day. Everytime we have a pitcher (perkins especialy) throw batting practice they grab the arm/elbow/sholder and claim an injury. THROW THE DARN BALL!!!!! That is your J O B!!!! wink

Now we get the angel's, the best team in baseball, to cap off the roady.

I just don't want to look back on this week as the spot we took the hard left turn.

With the deadline comming sooner than later and other teams in the devision trying to work out big deals to make themselves better you have to wonder what we are doing? From the sounds of it we have nothing going or in the works. With the blaring needs we have confusedconfusedconfused

No such thing as gimmies in Baseball the worst teams in the league win 60 games or 40 percent of their games..K?

On a side note the Boston Red Sox have lost 5 straight and have scored 8 runs in those games...

It's baseball guys!

Someone on ESPN just 2 weeks ago predicted that the Rays would get the Wild Card and either the Yanks or the Red Sox will win division and the other team be odd man out, he might be right

Lke Pier says, don't worry, its only a loss.

Exactly another west coast collapse. Just like last year when you went through this same old spiel and gave up on the Twins!

Except you were WRONG last year and we ended up with the best record in the Division along with the Sox who we also had the edge in the season series 10-8. grin

Looks like the team feel apart in the 6-5 loss. Seems everyone had a hand in this loss. This was a pitiful loss.

They will be ok though.

We can all cheer as hard as we want but it does not help.

Wow..kinda rough...we have 30% of out remaining games against over .500 teams, meanwhile Detroit and Chicago have over half their games against over .500 teams, and Detroit still has games left against NY and Bos. It ain't over yet. The big lady is still sitting in her seat. She hasn't even started to clear the throat. shocked

5 games back, big deal. and alot of games coming up within the division. Typical twins west coast trip...we seem to get pounded out there every year. but somehow turn out okay at the end of the year.

A ton of time left and we're only 4 out, I'll take that. Just hope we win the division, and then hope we are the hot team entering the playoffs. The boys are still entertaining, a little frustrating, but entertaining. It's the only reality TV I watch these days. wink

Relax boys and girls, every team goes through a rough stretch, and I mean EVERY TEAM. Boy I am not hearing anyone degrading Mauer, now that he has come down to earth. I mean come on his batting average has dropped 35 points. That is why they play 162 games or 163 if you are so unlucky.

We are 4 games out and looking for help. Something will pop this week for all you (we need some players to help make it to the playoffs) gig. How soon we forget the 87 Twins. people were dead wrong all year and then guess what happened.

PETER PETER POSITIVE OUT HERE. not negative nellies.

two things about 87 that we had in our favor that we really don't right now is 1) now a team needs to win 3 series instead of just 2 series to be champs and 2) we don't have a frank viola or a bert blyleven to carry them through the playoffs.

on the positive side, the cardinals pulled of a somewhat similar to our 87 run just a couple years ago where they clearly were not the best team during the season but everything clicked during playoffs so I guess nobody can say it's impossible.

    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid.
