      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 .

Once again we do NOTHING!!!!

Recommended Posts

Another trade deadline come and gone and the Twins get..... NOTHING!!!!! Did they get rid of the dead weight???? NO!!! We still have Boof BOOM BOOM Bonser, Adam Everet, Lamb, the list goes on. Cassia out for the year, Did we get a 2nd baseman??? NO!!!! We got nothing....

I cant wait untill tomarrow to see who they put on waviers. Pridictions anyone? Boof will not clear, so I doubt he will be placed. Levan is on for sure, Lamb, Everet, Anyone who plays left field, who am I missing????

Mabe we can get someone to claim our trash, or will we pick up someone else's. I realize we like to cultivate from within and dont like to give up strarting pitchers, but everyone else in the devision made moves and what did we do??? Cassia was the spark that made this team better for the last few months and now he is out. Will we go .500 now???

i think any realistic twins fan knows that this team is not going to make any moves to get anyone this year. the upper management is focusing on building this organization around opening the new ballpark.

anything this team does this year is just a bonus, they are already exceeding expectations. just wait for all the pieces to fall into place when the new stadium opens up and things should be looking good for the twins

KMR85 and Cicada said it best!

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!

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?

Cuddy is coming back soon, from what it sounds like. Here is a high RBI guy that gives us some bench back. Then it sounds like Liriano is heading up - and Tolbert is playing in the Minor leagues.

We add three guys....

Have a little faith in Gardy... after all he kicked the [PoorWordUsage] out of his cap tonight!!!

Big Mistake --

Should have gotten Griffey.

He would have put more tails in the seats and given us an additional power hitter.

Not the Whitesucks got him --

Ish

I think Mourneau had a good article in todays paper....sort of on the line that we are doing ok with what we have and sometimes bringing in somebody this late in the season is a disruption...basically in Chitown, there aren't enough line-up spots for JR.

I'll still take this years bench over the ones we have had for the last few years.

It's baseball, we complain and we enjoy. We are fans, not owners or managers.

Gardy just may have a new job replacing Klewe on the Vikes. laugh

We shouldn't be suprised that they didn't make a move. Sounds like they looked at a few senerio's and nothing panned out. I think what matters is what was in today's Trib, all the players were in favor of keeping this team intact. As long as they are for it and want to rally as a group that got them here let them go. No one honestly thought they would be here so let them play it out and address your needs in the off season for a deeper run next year.

I am glad the Twins didnt throw their future away to rent a guy for a few months. If they could have dumped a few players we dont want and get a good player I would be all for it, but the payers we dont want, nobody else does either! We would have had to give up alot more then what any of these players were worth to make a trade.

I'm not surprised either. Other than the short Garret Atkins rumor that was out there for a little while, there really wasn't much that would have helped this team out greatly.

I really hope we make the move of getting Liriano up and replacing Hernandez before his next scheduled start. I've heard that Livan is well liked and a good role model for the young players, but he needs to move to the bullpen and asap. I don't understand people defending him saying that he's an inning eater. Anybody can be an inning eater if you leave him in the game when he's getting shelled. The only difference between him and Boof when he was still a starter was that Boof got pulled if he gave up five runs in the first three innings but they leave Livan in the game in that same scenario. End result is usually loss in both cases unless the Twins have an offensive explosion.

I'm not sure we want either of them in the bullpen for exactly that reason. These guys enter a game and the scoreboard starts to look like a pinball machine. If either are in the bullpen it should be in a mop up role to rest the pitchers who can actually pitch. smile

Other teams are not that dumb. Why would they take our "excess weight" and give us something valuable in return?

Should we give up a young player that is producing now or has a bright future to "rent" someone to go for it this year? Or stick with what we have any play well this year and maybe even better in the future?

I am glad they didn't make a move....

    • Seasoning is not that big of an issue, just make your own rubs. The internet is full of recipes. It is a bit of work to smoke a pork butt or brisket depending on the smoker you have but with the right equipment it's not so much work as it is the time to prepare.  If you are one of those who are always in a hurry then you may want to just stick with steaks, burgers and hot dogs on the gas grill but if you have some time and want some gourmet food once in a while nothing beats good ole' southern BBQ, for me. The fact that we live in this predominantly Scandinavian region where ribs are usually baked, boiled or put in a crock pot and ketchup is too spicy is all the more reason it is imperative that I be at least semi-competent at BBQing. It is almost impossible to get good,  authentic, southern BBQ around here. You can however get a good steak just about everywhere you turn.
    • Looks like salt, pepper, maybe cayenne and garlic.   30 minute marinade isn't doing much.      Good pork doesn't need much more than salt and pepper and maybe a little sugar.  
    • Shot a 10 point with the slick trick raptor trick last week and was really happy with the results. Shot him at 2 yards so I waited for a quartering away shot to open up more of the vitals. Broadhead took a rib and a chunk of a vertebra going in 2 ribs,sternum and part of the leg going out. Slightly bent a blade otherwise no damage to the head. Only thing I didnt like was the entry hole in the hide was only 3/4" wide and that is because of the front deployment design. Once it was through the hide it opened to the full 2" cut. Blood trail at impact was 2 feet wide and he only went 25 yards.  I have taken 3 deer and a turkey this year with different heads. A whitetail doe and turkey with 3 blade rage chisel tip,both broadheads were broke after the shot. A mule deer doe with a griztrick 2,30 yard shot pass through. Great blood trail head was perfect and still sharp. And the buck with the raptor trick. 
    • Still on a roll from my 2016 season. 
    • Outlier. I will confess though that at least with brisket it is beef so by nature it won't need as much as pork in terms of seasoning.  
    • Texas style.  Salt and black pepper.   Put it in the smoker.  wrap it.    
    • @Big Dave2 Yeah, I have a couple acres in the woods with deeded water front access.  Had it for about 10 years now.  This camper has been stationary on it for about 6 of those years.
    • It can be but not without a quite a bit of work and seasoning which adds to the cost. I don't see too many people cooking brisket , pulled pork etc without adding a whole bunch of stuff to make it taste decent. 
    • If you want a steak then you are probably right but sometimes a good brisket sandwich is even better!
