      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 .

Span

Recommended Posts

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.

Probably never happen why would you move Mauer who is the best defensive catcher in Baseball.

Answer YOU WOULDN'T!

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

Happy B-day!

They should try Cuddyer at third.

No they shouldn't. The Twins have been there, done that with Cuddyer. He's an outfielder for a reason.

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.

I like what Kubel is doing right now but he can't hit lefty's.

Maybe having Young fill in at DH against LEfty's is another option!

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.

    • I am up next Wednesday... but I got a niece to get out prior to me... hopefully Sunday.  Thanks guys
    • In SD you can only buy one any weapon Black Hills tag in the spring.  There is a state-wide archery only tag that can be used out here as well.   Usually it is tough to get just one bird, so I don't buy an archery tag.   This year we planned on rock climbing after shooting turkeys, so we are kicking that off a little quicker than expected.   I do not believe it is possible to buy non-res over the counter tags, even though it is not a lottery, and buying online requires shipping to an address that takes a few days...   I also did not bring my bow, but if my uncle has a bow for me to use I might call game and fish to see if I can buy an archery tag in Rapid and hunt a bit each day before we go climbing.  
    • before...or after happy hour!!!!!!!!!
    • About as good as a day can get. Congrats to both of you. Your turn next pumper?
    • saw the first frog today!!!  
    • look caned turkey already!!!  
    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
    • Very productive day all around! 
    • Smile says it all. Good job Dad!
