      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 .

ya know, I love the Twins. I really do. I listen to almost every game on radio. But their resistance to do anything to really help the club is really frustrating and tries my patience. I was thinking about attending a game here shortly, but if they fail to make any moves, I may just stay home.

you might as well save your money and stay home.

Just like all the other years the Twins will sit on their hands and do nothing and yes it does get frustrating that they do that every year.

I agree, You can't just make a trade to make a trade. You don't always hear what the other team was asking for. The Twins usually make the moves that help not hurt a team. Granted they can botch it up also, but sometimes losing good prospects to "Rent" a player can backfire in a heartbeat.

Getting a big time player can backfire. Remember the Hersel Walker trade? Everyone says the Vikes have never won a SuperBowl, but actually, they have won 2. Problem is, they won them for Dallas !

sometimes the best moves are the ones you don't make

I agree for the most part and hardly ever 2nd guess our overall method which IMO is the best in baseball period but I do understand the frustration from some of our fans.

I shall will remain neutral on this on!. grin

Go Twins!

You know they have been shopping around, it is such that the asking price in return for a good player is one of the guys that is currently producing for us. I believe they would have made a move already if there was a worthy deal to be done. I also believe it is time to get Liriano up here to test him again in the big leagues. I just do not trust Livan out there, every pitch he throws I cringe. Just because they haven't made a move will not keep me from going to the dome to watch them, which is where I will be tonight. I think I will make a generic homer hanky, since I don't have any of the real ones from years past. I almost forgot, how could you stay away from the dome with all those babes at the game? And being married is not an excuse because looking isn't against the rules! smile GO TWINS!

I have a really bad memory, but the only 2 moves I can remember that helped at this time of the year were obtaining Shannon Stewart and in '87 getting Don Baylor.

There have been many ones that did not work, ie Rick Reed. Bret Boone...and others.

Go Twins. Yes it is frustrating, but look at Seattle. Their season is over.

Glad to see this guy get out of the National League!

He strikes out a lot but clubs his fair share of homers too!

Go Cubs!

The Reds get pitcher Nick Masset and minor league infielder Danny Richar and the Reds will pay the remainder of Griffey's $12 million salary for this season.

The lack of activity on the Twins part can be frustrating, but they are not the quick change kind of team. Solid basics and building from within are why they are the model organization that the middle and low budget teams try to emulate. They look hard at the intangibles like how a player will affect team chemistry. How many deadline trades really push a team over the edge? Far fewer than the trades that actually happen and they tend to be temprary solutions. This is a team of our future. The fact that they are conending this year is gravy. Why screw up the next three or four years to take a chance on this year? Even if they pull off atrade that gets them the division, there are too many steps to get the big trophy. And if you go to the games just to look at the babes,...sit next to me so you can point them out in case I miss one.

Wonder if you'd get circled if your sign said, "Circle me Bert, my wife's letting me check out the babes. Oh...and, go Twins."

Well, he agreed to the trade and will joint the team on friday. If he would have showed up today, I may have had to drive down and buy a walk up ticket.

Is he a "rental player", or does he have some time left on his contract? It would be nice to say I saw him play before he retires. Looks like he is going to play right for the pale hose, should be fun to watch.

who cares that they got Griffey, hes a mere shadow of his former self. Id rather have him playing in center than Anderson, as a twins fan.

Look at the White Sox's bullpen tonight,, they could have used some more pitching rather than a KG that's likely to only last one or maybe two more years, and doesn't play CF like Anderson does. KG does bring some more pop at the plate,, but the TWins only face the Sox 3 more times,,, at the dome.

If the Twins bring an effective Liriano up and do something with Livian,, I think the Twins hold a slight advantage over the White Sox.

I don't think this move is going to help them at all. Griffey was a great centerfielder, but he's 38. I think he'd be a great dh, but they have a great one already with Thome. If you add him to the line-up, then Konnerko, Thome, or Swisher will have to sit.

I think they have a lot of other weaknesses that could have been addressed.

Cicada, that might actually work, except i dont get hitched until late september. I could use a variation of your suggestion at the next game laugh Anyone that wasn't at the game last night missed a great one. Of course we couldn't score until the 5th (just like I told my buddies before the game). Still, that game was one of the best I have ever been to. Got to heckle some Chicago fans too. Gardy turned that game around, he got everyone on their feet and myself and many others have a sore throat today grin Hopefully his wife wasnt to angry.

    • the brown hounddog pictured above went in today to get fixed up!!!!!! wife should be able to pick her up about 3;30 today. sure stunk not being able to feed her this morning. the looks i got ........like what da he!!!!!!!!!
    • the missed call hasnt really bothered me, the wild should have retaliated after that but they seemed just lax about it. too bad they suspended him, just wish I was old enough to watch the playoff atmosphere of the 80's and early 90's. i thought by the end of the 3rd they would have tied it, I think the mix up lines helped change up the momentum, boudreau will need to pull some of this stuff tonight if they seem stale. I agree with Lung, Kiovu has not impressed me this year, his shootouts, his shots on goal just nothing special, just hope tonight they find a spark on the offense as we know those big boys on the Jets will be pushing them around tonight, too bad we dont have some more Folino's
    • I have the Cabelas 8'6" telescoping trolling rods in a med action I believe. Been using them for 4-5 years now. They work great for what you are asking. Although I have never caught striper on them, they work well for the walleyes up to 28". I think they collapse down to about 7'. Very reasonably priced.
    •   Is this some of your new Marketing idea's for the site Dave?
    • Snuck out today had one walk by 40 yards no shot ones gobbling at me across swamp making hos way now
    • If the refs call the game tight like they did in game 3, i think we come away with the W.  If they kind of turn a blind eye like they did in Game 4, the series is over.
    • Koivu has been pretty decent and our leading out team with 4 points but ya we just never find that next level. Our patchwork D hasn't been the issue, Stall hasn't produced like we needed him to and Nino, Coyle & Zucker have zero points between them. We needed our "depth" to score and they haven't. Coyle I think has been the best of him but he just isn't a goal scorer, has let numerous golden opportunities slip away. Hopefully the wild surprise tonight, otherwise its on Dubs to pitch a shutout and magically assists on the game winning goal. 
    • Saw that Morrisey is suspended for tonight.  Really too bad they missed the call during the game.  Should've been a 5 min major and a game misconduct.  Really would've changed the entire game IMO.  There are lots of times I wish Boogy was still around.   Staal needs to be checked for a concussion and Koivu needs to be checked into a retirement home.     Seems like we can pull up last years playoff and offseason threads and just ride that until October.  Same story, can't compete with a couple heavy blue liners and can't score.
