      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 .

Bonds in Blue

Recommended Posts

I like the idea, last in the league in home runs, we need another stick in the lineup, we all know that. And the good news is the TWINS can afford him. As far as the distraction part boo-whoo, tell him to show up and bat.We need another bat in the lineup to make the playoffs and to go deeper in the playoffs.

I'm not a Twins fan...it would be a disgrace to even have him in the midwest! I totally understand where you are coming from though....I don't think any organization would want the headache that comes along with him. That's a lot of drama!

Really is it that bad, heck ol knobby was on the list. We used to support him ...right? People are ranting and raving we need a third baseman that can hit. I really don't see one out there we can get.

If he were right-handed, I would be all for it. The Twins need a right-handed power hitter...we are already lefty-heavy in the lineup.

This is the kind of post you'd expect from PierBridge!

You crazy!.... grin

Bond's career is over isn't he like 47? just my opinion but the only jersey he'll be wearing will pin stripes and I aint't talking the Yankee's.

Since Bond's agent is shoping him around at the league minimum salary he would be a good pickup for the rest of the year, even if he is a Diva. Sign him at the league minimum, give him a performance incentive, and can his butt if he starts acting up. Not much downside.

I think it would help the twins with his at bat, I would clap for him after every home run he hit for us, but it doesnt matter, it wont happen!

If Bonds paid us 75 million we still wouldn't let him come here for OBVIOUS reasons

Cause the Twins are anti-power?

Cause if the Twins made a bold move to bolster our team for a post season run it would shock many people to the point of heart attacks?

I think it would be an absolute shocker if the Twins ended up with Bonds.......I would be for it for the fact that he is better than what we have at DH and in a must we could put him in the outfield and he wouldn't do any worse than Delmon Young.....He might bring a crowd with him but he might be the power that we are lacking and the way the Twins handle players I think Bonds would be just happy to be given a chance to come and play ball. The Twins need something to get them over the hump and into the playoffs and the all-time hr king* might just be what we need.......

How about this guy??

Reds left fielder Adam Dunn hit his 30th home run on Monday night, tying the Phillies' Ryan Howard for the major-league lead. His .941 OPS ranks ninth in the NL. And his defense, by most measures, has improved.

Nobody wants him?

    • Great catch for that spot!  
    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
    • CM, what is Chi doing with Hossa?  If Parise can't go or only can give 75% why not shelf him like Chi did with Hossa and save that cap space.
    • Stealing this idea from the old "Meat Sales" thread, where people share info on great deals grocery stores are currently running. Since we're getting close to the hard water season, I thought we could create a thread where people can share any good deals on ice fishing gear or apparel. Anything goes, if you see a sale on ice fishing equipment and think others might be interested in it, let us know.
    • This is a common misconception with LTIR. I too, thought it meant we "saved" money until I read up on it recently. What LTIR actually allows is for a team to go OVER the cap during a player(s) on LTIR, but once they return, they have to get back under the cap. So, true, it would allow them to spend more, but over the long haul it wouldn't be something they could go out and get someone to fill in without haven't to do something when the LTIR players return.
    • Population is up in NW WI where I hunt public land for deer.  I see grouse every time I go to deer stands or scouting, which is much improved over even a couple years ago.  I just can't get one to stand still for a bow shot, they are very skittish over there.  
    • NW Wisconsin public land.  New scrapes started appearing mid last week.   A couple were freshly hit on Sunday when I was out.  None were very big.    Interestingly I did see a small 6pt buck in the open at lunch time while I was scouting spots, and based on the direction he was going he was working his way to a logging road that had a scrape and tracks on it.
