      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 .

Just saw an interview with Denard Span. Very impressed! Still no sparkle in his eyes, but he seemed like a humble, hungry guy. Impressed with his personality, as well as his talent! His arm is decent, great instincts, great speed. He is here to stay(as long as he stays hungry). I should look up his stats... I think he is learning to hit LH pitchers too.

It would be a huge step to go from AAA to fill in Mauers shoes!

Happy B-day!

They should put Mauer at 3rd.

That makes no sense at all. He's doing just fine behind the plate. Last I checked he was starting catcher in the all-star game. That's pretty good.

From what Gardy said when Cuddy comes back Span will be left right where he is in the top of the order. Cuddy will get his spot back because they need a right handed bat. I would guess that Gomez will likely be the one to lose playing time when Cuddy comes back.

I would suspect the outfield to look something like

Young in left, Span in Center, Cuddy in right with Gomez either going down to AAA or coming in off the bench.

You might be able to bench Young here and there and move Span to left and put Gomez in center.

Kubel should be the everyday DH right now. He is hitting a ton right now. If you look at his home runs per at bat he is better then Morneau right now. If Kubel was an everyday player with all the at bats that come with it he would be predicted to have 21 hr's by now.

I agree Kubel should be our everyday DH. The numbers speak for themselves.

It is great to have all these good options. Can't recall the last time the Twins had this much depth at so many positions. I've always been amazed at how many injuries there are given it is a non-contact sport. With all the injuries they have had this year, this depth has allowed them to stay in contention.

Anyone riding the bench will likely not have too wait to long to get more time in. Before too long another starter will get injured (hopefully not Mauer or Morneau), then the player drawing the short straw will be back to being a starter again.

We were ready to cut, I think it was Everett, then six hours later, Casilla gets injured, Everett is back on the roster playing in a game.

All the variety has been fun, because someone new is always contributing to help this team. Early last year seemed like most of the new guys stunk ... lets hope we don't have to relive those days.
