      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 Ace?

Recommended Posts

Next year? How about opening day starter for the playoffs! I would say you start Baker, you want someone with good control.

Wow were already talking about next year?!?! I take it you dont think we'll be in the playoffs?

They will make it, besides an ace also means "best pitcher", not just the opening day starter next season, but that is the best definition.

And with all that being said, Slowey is our hottest pitcher right now. They all look good, just need the run support and defense to make the playoffs.

All 5 starters have sub-4.00 ERA right now. For the first time, I really don't know who our 4th and 5th guys would be. I'd have to put Liriano and Perkins in the top 3. Toss up between Barker and Slowey, followed by Blackburn. Remember 2006 when Liriano and Radke went down? We had Santana and then a couple of 4th and 5th-guy type left. If we could just get a reliable set-up guy back. Just think if Neshek comes back solid next year. 2 WS in the ROW!!!!

I hate to say this but I can see Smith trading one of starters this offseason.

If Liriano can get control of more of his pitches he would be the starter with no questions, but your starter will be the pitcher with the best control, Baker! Liriano has the best potential to be the best, but he needs to have all of his pitches going where he is trying to throw them!

I think they may start Baker, Slowey or Perkins but if it were me I'd start the guy who has Won 13 out of his last 14 games and has an ERA around 2.00 in that stretch.

I like Baker and FL. Take Baker becasue he seems to have more control and go deeper into a game. Also- Baker was one hitter away and one walk aaway from a perfect game/no hitter last year at home agst KC..BUT FL when on,, thou not as good after the TJ, is still very good.

    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
    • Between the frig and stove its only about 2 steps    My kinda program !!!
    • like any addiction..........there are the 12 steps!!!!!!!!!!
    • awe............a Christmas present for the wife................so you can use it!!!! I see!!!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!
    • Whatever gets you though the night.  If it makes you feel superior to drink expensive whiskey then by all means do so.  
    • And then there are a select few people that don't know their arse from a hole in the ground and have the time to google chit about any subject imaginable and then pretend to be ex spurts on internet forums. 
    • I just bought one for my wife and am looking forward to trying it. I just cant wrap my head around cooking fresh meat that isn't frozen with breading on it. I will have to try the fish with dry batter on it. Do you spritz it with oil or not? Going to be a learning experience!
