      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.

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......

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.

    • The gobbler came in and beat the jake down I shot him and five seconds later the hen decoy fell over from not being able to stake it down in the frozen ground.
    • I don't have near the birds featherslayer has. My groups were one gobbler with three or four  hens. There was zero gobbling on the roost both mornings. When they hit the ground there was a lot of gobbling and strutting for a couple of hours. The one I shot this morning answered my calls a  couple of times but was out of sight the whole while. He stopped gobbling for a hour and a half when suddenly there was a gobble and close. I called a little bit and he popped out of the trees about eighty yards away and stood there in full strut and just checked things out. Did some soft calling and here he came in full strut and went right to my jake decoy and gave him a beat down. That was all it wrote for him. Classic case of him losing his hens and coming to check out that hen he had answered after flydown. This is a little area I'm hunting and I had let a jake go last year and I'm hoping this was him. Good luck to the rest of our teammates.
    • On my first sit right now. 40 birds in the field, at least 5 shooters, 2 of those are very nice. Think they have to come by me to roost. Fingers crossed.
    • Good job buddy. Glad to see you wiped that skunk off the new bow.
    • Way to close the deal guys!
    • I would always use tree tubes for any hardwoods. If it's small enough to need a tube for protection from deer, rabbits, other... than use the tube. If your putting in the time and money to plant them, you might as well protect them.    Lots of them are on the market. I have only used one type of tube myself. Tubex- combitudes (spelling?). If you are worried about deer you should get the 5 foot tubes. Since that is about the upper limit of their browsing heights. I've used the fiberglass green stakes from L & M instead of buying the stakes from tree tubes suppliers. The only problems i have had so far is a curious bear, who wanted to chew a few tubes.    The other thing you should think about talking to your local DNR forester. They can help you to make sure you are planting trees that are correct for your soils. And may be able to help financially to purchase tubes. https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/cfm-map.html    Hope this helps, 
    • Thanks. Even got the itch to take a spin after seeing other bikes out today. Just a short ride down to the car wash to knock the dust off. Should have worn gloves though as it was a little nippy on the fingers. Maybe Ill run my Super Glide down there tomorrow
    • Birds in my area are too responsive, and yes i had 2 big fellas come in to my 1 tom and 2 hen set up. Accually i had the whole flock coming in and it was load with the hens and all the toms. One thing i fogured out is if there is alot of birds dont be soft calling. I tried to top the old hen and thats what pulled them my way. Good luck to my team and hopfully everybody could have a morning like I did, it wont be forgotten.
    • Well sounds like all went well. My wife just called and picked her up. She does have a drain tube but according to the wife she's acting normal..... For her!
