      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 .

Twins bullpen

Recommended Posts

I'm sick to my stomach after watching tonight's blowup. I just don't see how we're going to win the Central with a bullpen like this. The only solid piece we have is Joe Nathan. Who else is there to rely on? Should we call up Korecky? I thought we could rely on Breslow somewhat, but even he couldn't get an out tonight!

We need to be winning these games against the worst teams in the league!!! Especially when Chicago is idle!

Another crack decision by the skipper to leave Perkins in too long.

Isn't there another thread that is about 4 pages long complaining he yanks the starters too early?

I wouldn't say we played down to their level at the plate. Our late pitching sure did though. Even perkins struggled at times too, but this is a game they really need to forget quick. Can't give up a six run lead and then have it stick in your head this late in the season. Hopefully they are fired up tonight and really run up the score.

What I couldn't believe, this morning on KFAN they were talking about the bullpen of the Twins. They said their home ERA is like 2.31 ERA and their road ERA is like 6.40. I don't know if this takes into account Nathan or it would be like 8.00 on the road. Not pretty.

When your starting staff last less than 6 innings and they all have to warm up or pitch every night, the season gets long.

How do you spell...T-I-R-E-D!!!!

They had something liquid running down there legs and it wasn't pine tar or gatorade.

Ish ...

We CAN'T lose these to the Ms. They will come back to haunt us.

I would blame this one more on the hitters leaving the bases loaded several time with less the one out. Also, some shoddy fielding didn't help the bullpen out. frown

can't be losing leads when they're in a playoff race, especially to the two teams they let that happen against. hopefully they will embarrass the yankees the next 3 games.

Right now the bp other than Nathan is definitely the weak link. Reyes did well yesterday and has a good era but he typically only gets used for a couple batters. The others are very unreliable. I especially cringe when I see Crain warming up. He seems to give up key walks and/or hits much to regularly.

Sure wish they could pick up another P for the stretch run. Not sure who is out there though. Even if they picked up someone who could start and let Blackburn or Perkins be their first bp guy, it seems like it would be better than what they have going right now. Might not be a good idea, but I almost wish that if they can't get rid of Boof that they'd try using him for a couple starts just to upgrade the BP. Then again, moving one of the young guys to the BP just might cause other problems.

The reality of it all is that we fans should enjoy the stretch run this season. Not too many of us, myself included, expected they'd be in first place in mid August so this is really a bonus.

    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon.
