      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 .

Quentin gets Jack Clarked

Recommended Posts

American League home run leader Carlos Quentin has a broken wrist, and the Chicago White Sox left fielder will have surgery Monday that could sideline him for the rest of the season.

Quentin was removed from the lineup before Tuesday's game because of what the White Sox described then as a sore right forearm, and he hasn't played since. The team said Friday that he was hurt during last Monday's game at Cleveland.

A screw will be inserted into the wrist, and he will be re-evaluated in two to three weeks. Quentin is batting .288 with 36 homers and 100 RBIs.

Quentin missed two games after he was hit on a forearm by Boston's Josh Beckett on Aug. 11. When Quentin returned Aug. 14 and was plunked by Kansas City's Kyle Davies, Quentin became the first player hit by a pitch in six straight games since at least 1920.

Quentin has been hit 20 times in all this year, the most in the American League.

Chicago said Quentin will be operated on by hand and wrist specialists, Dr. Mark Cohen and Dr. John Fernandez along with orthopedic surgeon Dr. Charles Bush-Joseph of Midwest Orthopedics at Rush University.

He still deserves the MVP. We will just have to have other guys step up and fill the gap. Griffey signing is not looking too bad right now, eh?

Ya I thought when they signed Griffey they were off their rocker, but can he stay healthy enough to play a couple games in a row?

Windy can't argue with that one, but there are players lurking. I do hope things go well, but it does look good for the sox when your back up is 80 and cant play 3 games in a row.

G.C.

can someone batting only .288 win MVP?

A better question for Windbag: Can someone playing for a team that misses the postseason win the MVP?

(Oh, yeah... Rod Carew 1977.... But he batted .388...) smile

Hey Sled,

There was this team a few years ago and they dominated the playoffs and won the World Series in a crushing fashion and the highest batting average from any of their players was .290.

Want to hazzard a guess as to what team that was? We will be just fine, and who would you pick as MVP?

Carlos Quentin and Lil' Nicky Punto are both currently hitting .288... Coincidence?... or conspiracy?... You decide.

(There is that HR gap, but LNP just needs to hit 34 of 'em in Sept to catch up and he's a shoe-in for MVP...) smile

Oops... This just in: LNP goes 0-3 in tonight's game and is now down to .285. All MVP hopes now must be considered 'on hold.' Stay tuned.

Buzzy,

You ole stalker you! I haven't talked to you in a month of Sundays! How's life treating you, man. Our power is out at the office so I am sitting in my shorts at home waiting for it to get turned back on. Might get a day off here. My daughter got married Saturday. How's the photo business? Looks like it is the Twinks and Pale Hose once again, to the amazement of all the "experts" who salivated over the Kitties and Tribe.

Pauly did not look good taking that tumble, nervous times here, to be sure! But how about DA BEARS!!!!!

    • FANtastic! Congrats Donbo!   No bird for me today, hopefully tomorrow  
    • I will get one they will come over the brook and I will be waiting.
    • On Friday morning I decided to take the scenic way home from work and stopped at Browns Creek, just north of Stillwater, to shake off the dust on my trout equipment. Wasn’t any signs of life in the stream! I’m wondering if the DNR wasn’t able to stock it before the opener due to the snow conditions?    Saturday morning I ventured down to the Vermillion River. I personally don’t care much for this river, as I don’t think it’s any good. But I a bible study in Rosemount in the afternoon, so I figured I’d give it a go. Water was high, fast and dirty. Didn’t catch anything. Neither did anyone else I talked to.   Not the start to the trout season I had hoped for 
    • Just a matter of time then I would think. One of them will make a mistake and end up down the end of your gun barrel. It would keep my faith up just knowing there are that many around. Good luck.      
    • Hakuna matata on my deck
    • BBD!  More to come...
    • Bought from private seller; my mistake should have been one thing to check; there is no wiggling it at all, it’s frozen in there tried torching it to no avail; put everything back together hoping I could grease and crank up and down but the zerk keeps coming off, and now it doesn’t lower at all; will have to bite the bar and bring it in
    • There is at least double the number to the left side They roost 150 yards from where my blind is 123 congrats on the bird
    • The whole flock skirted me this morning, never coming closer than 100 yds.  Stayed in the landowners back yard all morning before heading to parts unknown. Counted 7 longbeards in the bunch. Headed back now. I'm sure my blind will be surrounded when I get there. Good luck guys.
