      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 .

With the Twins in the midst of a pennant race, manager Ron Gardenhire said Thursday that Carlos Gomez will see reduced playing time.

About time. Gomez was handed the starting center field gig in spring training and has held it all season despite hitting just .252/.289/.341 in 130 games. He's hit .230/.271/.289 with a hideous 69/13 K/BB ratio since June 1 and has just 11 steals over the past 80 games after running a ton early on. Denard Span will play center field when Gomez is benched, with Randy Ruiz and Matt Tolbert likely picking up additional at-bats.

Don't forget about Cuddy. He should be back in a couple of weeks.

Span is great in center, excellent range and a great bat.

GO GO is young and over eager at the plate. He is still learning.

What caused his downfall is the question that needs to be answered. Is he tired and worn out. Is he pulling out at the plate, tring to kill the ball. It should be hitting the ball where it is pitched, instead of trying to pull everything.

He has to find a way to get on base more. Once he is on base lots of things can happen, and your options increase.

I dont know if Cuddy will rejoin the team unless we have an injury. He hasnt played in a few months, he hasnt seen a pitch, and there is no minor team for him to practice in for a few weeks to get back up to speed. Gomez will be a good bench player, and can be used as a pinch runner when needed.

I agree that Cuddy is a stretch, just looking at all options, for the playoff push.

Your right GO GO would be good bench player, if he would accept that role. I am sure he wants to play, but his bat has to come back to life. He does have spurts of bat life, but it leaves as fast as it came.

i agree with that. he went 4-4, i believe, after getting hurt in seatlle back in august. let's just hope he doesn't turn into a baby being in this position.

Actually, it was Gomez's ball in center. The centerfielder takes precidence over any other fielder when he calls for the ball. Unfortunately, with 45,000 screaming fans they didn't hear each other calling for it. That is pretty much what Gardy said also in his post game comments. Great game though all around.

Absolutely correct. CF gets right of first refusal for anything he thinks he can get to. That said, Gomez's enthusiasm may have got the better of his judgement on that one. I can live with mistakes that come out of sheer hustle, though. The Twins have a ton of guys that will do whatever it takes to win and Gomez fits in with that. He just needs to bridle some of that unbridled energy and hustle.

Just re-asking the question, it seemed thateveryone thought the front office of the Twins were out of their minds that they didnt meet the offers of Hunter and Santana, I am glad they didnt, and I always was. A very smart move for our teams future!

I look at who we have on our team now, and there isnt one person I could say that we should dump and try to replace for next season, besides relief pitching. And even relief pitching, we have some bright spots on what we have! We also will be getting Neshek back next year. Look out for next year, lights out!

    • That is fine del. A lot of people like Ripple and Boonesfarm wines too.
    • You said... "I'm not going to discuss it" and I agreed you don't need to.    Sucker for the marketing folks.     I drink what I like.   And I don't like paying way too much for whiskey that tastes no better to me.  If you are one of those super taster snobs, more power to you.  
    • I run  5/16 on my new house. My old house had 1/8 form Miltona and lasted  just over a yr. I was out the sec time of the yr and seen one was fraying a little when setting it down on the ice. After I had it on the ice I told my son  we have to change cables when we get home. Fast forward 6 hrs and crank one side up about half ways and go over to the other side and start cranking it up and the cable broke. If my head would have been in the way it would have been bad news. I had enough cable to restring it. And get it up and locked in. I went to the other side and started to crank and that one popped to. I went and got the floor jack out of the back of the pickup and jacked it up and locked it in place. I put 1/4 on when I got home that night.   I take my house in the car wash everytime I come home when its wet it. If you have bad cables change them. For me it every two yrs and thats with 5/16 inch
