      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 .

I've been proven wrong. This guy is an absolute stud, and seems to be the real deal at the leadoff position. I didn't think he could be such a good player for this long, but he certainly has. I hope he stays this way for years to come!

You weren't wrong you were just using common sense!

Nobody could expect a .280 career hitter in 6 seasons in the MINORs to become a .320 hitter over night in the Majors.

Miracles do happen wether the Miracle continue's for years to come we'll have to stay tuned for that!

I love this guy.

We've been lucky this year with Span and Casilla both coming up from the minors and doing phenomenal. Let's hope they both can continue what they are doing in years to come. I got a feeling they can!

He had a better spring that the boy wonder in centerfield but ended up in Rochester. I'm also a believer that Span and Casilla at the top of the order makes this a different and more potent team. And anything that keeps Punto on the bench is a good thing.

Yes Punto has and he hasn't terrible at the plate either. Span is great to have in the leadoff as well. He is a solid young player.

I like Span too. He looks like a ball player out there. Professional. In the field and at the plate. Disciplined, you can tell he's worked at his craft. Not saying he's going to be a lifetime 320 hitter but it looks like he did develop nicely. Utilizing his tools and understanding the game.

Punto is decent in the field, as a hitter I have no faith. He has trouble laying down a bunt at times which is real scary. And today he's having a bad start.

Error in the first, leading to run

and

Bottom 3rd: Minnesota

- C. Gomez reached on bunt single to third

- D. Span hit by pitch, C. Gomez to second

- N. Punto struck out swinging

haven't seen that lately....

are you gonna burn your Cuddyer jersey now?

No. But I do think that once Cuddyer comes back, Gomez is going to find himself a nice spot on the bench.

ATTENTION: Please cease and desist with the comments relating to Punto being an OK, Decent, or serviceable infeilder..... He is without question "the BEST all around defensive infielder in the MAJORS".... PERIOD!... I didn't say it Peter Gammons did!!!!!

I understand some of the offensive criticism although he had 2 more hits today and is hitting .280 for the season but come on folks he's INCREDIBLE defensively and isn't going anywhere!

It's a career year for Punto and the guy is nothing but HUSTLE..... So deal with it!

I feel better now... carry on!.. grin

That away PierBridge, Could not agree more. Punto can play all 3 infield position at any given time and play them well. His offense this year is steady. Granted last year was not his best, but he has rebounded nicely.

G.C.

    • If you want to get through ice fast and are going to re-tool for it completely, look at a Nils before making your final decision. 
    • I am fully aware of this as are most people.
    • some people are bad apples that give the sport a bad name, I as a snowmobiler have respect for driveways. FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone. trail groomers actually do you a favor by knocking down the bank, to keep it level. unless your groomer was not well trained, they will not groom over your driveway.
    • If code allows post frame for residential construction then by design you don't need a block foundation. 
    • Perfect that awnsers my question. Why spend $250 when I could spend $150 on a new lazer bit and cuts faster, it’s more durable but still about same weight and a chipper but. Really a no brainer. What are you seeing for drilling time with that 8 inch lazer?
    • From my experience one of my only complaints with the Kdrill is how slow it drills. It more than gets the job done but my laser 8” is faster.
    • So I’ve always fished 8 inch holes but really why? Most Anything can fit through a 6 inch hole anyway. I was thinking maybe for next season of getting a 6 or 8 inch I drill and putting it on my 1.5hp solo. Right now it’s about 24lb which is light but with the k drill it would be lighter yet. My question is would I be getting any more speed out of a k drill vs regular SM chipper bit? And then I can invest in a nice Milwaukee fuel and there we go.
    • Hi there, new here. Found this place because of this older topic.  We are planning a pole barn home on a slab. This is the 1st one in our township and the inspector seems unsure about the requirements for the slab "foundation" and insulation. When we started last year the old inspector said if the poles are through the frost level (42") you can just lay down a flat 4" slab. The new inspector seems to think it needs a foundation. Not finding much info online for this specific build. Plan as of right now. 4" radon pea gravel and barrier, 4" rock, 2" foam, heat tubes, steel mesh with 4" concrete over that. Someone here know the county (Isanti) spec for something like this? Township overrules county.  Thanks.   https://talk.newagtalk.com/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=376864&DisplayType=nested
    • BB gun?  Hows that for a 1st post?   
    • Ahh. Thanks for your story PRO-V. That’s what I’m trying to avoid. Plus it’s about 400 feet of hose to get to the banks...
