      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 .

Number our starters

Recommended Posts

We got to talking about the Twins starters this weekend and it really tugs at the brain a little. If the playoffs started soon and we had a playoff berth wrapped up, how would you arrange the rotation (and as long as you are at it, list the #4 and #5 starters as well). Here are mine, although it is a tough call:

#1 Baker (best potential?)

#2 Slowey (best control?)

#3 Livan (most experience)

#4 Perk (best makeup?)

#5 Blackburn (most consistent?)

Just for the experience level I would probably have Livan as #1 followed by Baker, Baclkburn/Slowey (doesn't matter what order), and the Glen.

Do a random number drawing to pick the order. I don't think it matters. Livan is more valuable to the young picthers in the dugout. His seven innings and 5 runs will be a killer in the playoffs. If we make the playoffs Livan would be my 4th or 5th starter. I like the the young guys better in that situation. I just think they have better stuff. I realize its tough to reorder your rotation for the playoffs. If I could I go Blackburn, Baker, Perkins, Slowey, Pray for rain....

Walleye guy you hit it right on the head Livian is scary. I bet if they make the playoffs he's Gardy's #1 just cause of the experience.

We need to send Gardy the link to FM... Not that he would follow my advice. Keep in mind that Gardy didn't pitch Kenny Rogers afew years ago in the playoffs. We lost the first series so maybe we should pitch the wiley (slow, average stuff) in the playoffs.

Baker, Liriano, Blackburn, Slowey, Perkins

Try and trade LIvan for anything you can get that might help in the next year or two!

High praise for Baker and Perkins in the number 5 hole shows how good these guys have been. Livan could eat up a lot of middle relief for a young squad.

Good point Big Tom, Livan could be a good relief pitcher especially when used after a good fast ball pitcher like Crain or Reyes his off speed (low speed) pitching could really throw off the batters.

If we are worried about playoff order...its likely not going to matter. Lets say we make the playoffs this year. We aren't going to have a monster lead where we can set up the rotation specially. We will likely have to battle for to the wire.

Lets just hope setting the playoff rotation is a problem Gardy has to decide on!

There is such a fine line between the talent of our young starters. They have all shined at one point in this season.

That said, here is my list... But there's not much of a difference between them.

1. Baker

2. Blackburn

3. Slowey

4. Perkins

5. Hernandez

    • 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?
