      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 .

This guy wouldn't have helped the Twins

Recommended Posts

The Tigers on Monday acquired left-handed hitting Aubrey Huff from the Baltimore Orioles for minor-league pitcher Brett Jacobson.

Huff was hitting .253 with 13 home runs and 72 RBI for the Orioles this year while splitting time at first base and designated hitter. However, as recently as last year, he played third base -- and has started more at third than at any other defensive position -- so he might be able to help out at that position whenever Brandon Inge needs a game off.

Huff, 32, is coming off one of his best year as a hitter. In 2008, he hit .304 for Baltimore with 32 home runs and 108 RBI. He can be a free agent at the end of this season, however.

I think 32 is about 2 years younger than the AVERAGE Tiger. Fact of the matter is, the Tigers aren't that great of a ball team, they are an average team in a bad division

Huff is making $8 Million a year and only batting .253 with 13 homers.

And most of the people around here think Cuddyer is overpaid at $7.6 and he's hitting .270 with 19 homers.

Good one!!! LOL laugh

The players at this time of the year are not worth picking up. Teams put overpaid, underproducing players to dump contracts. The twins need to sign free agents, no minor leaguers to give up and thats what the twins never want to do is give up prospects.

And we would have given them which pitcher in return? We have nothing but pukers in A, AA, AAA, and Big boy ball.

No trade bait = no trade......

Cuddyer is over paid by 5 mill!!

The Huff is overpaid by 7 million going by your standards.

I don't expect any decent trades to happen for 2 reasons.

1. We don't have anything to offer.

2. We aren't able to pay the salary of someone who could actually help us.

Remember that Mauer is going to need a new deal that isn't going to be cheap. Does anyone see this club signing Mauer and trading for and taking on the salary of a solid player who can help us now and in the long run?

I'd prefer we take care of Mauer first and then look at what we can get in free agency. But I think everyone in the organization knows that Mauer has to be the priority.

    • What kind of speakers and how are the speakers mounted? Sometimes they have to be in somewhat of a "box" to create the bass. 
    • sent him a note earlier
    •   I have a Nils and love it, would recommend it to anyone. Although I've never used the K-Drill, I've seen enough positive reviews to feel confident you really can't go wrong with either one. The only exception is if you're reopening holes a lot (especially if you have a permanent house). The K-Drill seems to be better for that. 
    • You need to go to the dmv and register it as a homemade trailer. 
    • I have a 4 channel car stereo, that I installed in my wheelhouse. I only hooked up 2 speakers, the 2 fronts. I’m not much of a music person, more for news/ weather.  The problem is it sounds like dump, no bass, all treble. Is that because I don’t have the other 2 speaker connected? Can all the speakers be the same kind or does a different type speaker need to be connected to the other channels. don’t have much stereo knowledge, so any help would be appreciated.  
    • Thanks for the additional info guys.  I think the back right corner is where mine were too well done also. How about your experiences with Collagen casings - I used up some that were a year old, and they seemed to fall apart a bit or almost get a little mushy.  Should I stay away from old ones?
    • Surface tension should know this one? He's a Nils sharpening guy!
    • My Dad traded a boat last year for a wheel house and I would guess the house was never registered.  We mostly rebuilt it from the ground up because it was too wide to pull down the road.  Anyway, my Dad passed away early this year before he could register or use it.  It was handed down to me and I am a little confused how to get it registered.  I don't have any receipts for anything and it's 7.5'x12'.  So, under 3k lbs is my guess.  Any ideas?
