      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 .

Is anyone else sick of this stat...

Recommended Posts

I keep hearing about how many more homeruns the Sox's hit then the Twins. 235 to 111, last night the announcers mentioned it every time the Sox came up to bat.

They never once mentioned the fact that despite the homerun differential the Twins still managed to outscore the Sox on the season 829-811.

They made it sound like the Twins have this feable offense becuase they can't hit homeruns. It may be true that we didn't hit many this year but we are still 3rd in the AL and 4th in all of baseball in runs scored. I'll take that every year.

Just looking at homeruns for the season is a misleading stat.

Another interesting stat that no one mentions.

Team Batting Average

Twins 4th in MLB at .279

White Sox 16th in MLB .263

They did mention quite often the Avg with runners in scoring position and the Twins have hit over 300. No one has done this for quite a while.

Dingers don't win games, runs do.

They did mention the average with runners in scoring position.

i guess what was irritating me was they kept comparing us to the Sox in only the homerun category. I wish they would have compared us in other categories like Avg. with runners on, or just team average, or total runs for the year. Maybe not as flashy as the homerun stat but very impressive.

You could tell who's side the announcers were on. Just remember we know better, no matter what they try to compare us to.

I thought the announcers where a little rusty in general. They misspoke alot. Did any of you catch Eck fumbling with his words after the game? I believe he said something about a pitchers "walkout to strike ratio". Pretty sure he was looking for Srikeout to Walk ratio.

Just lots of slips throughout the game, you always knew what they meant but several times they got names mixed up, teams mixed up, etc. I just figure they are getting into playoff form.

I agree Nofish I'll take more runs. base runners and more pressure on the pitcher and defense any day over a few more dingoes and STRIKE OUTS!

That was weird with the announcers and some of their pronunciations. I swear he was calling AJ AG all night...LOL.

I'll take more runs.... but last night the team with the HOMERS would have been nice! Certain analysts, play by play guys, etc. love the Twins, but for the most part it is about $$$, viewership, advertising, market share ...etc. etc... and Chicago is $$$ vs. Minnesota, so don't think the networks or MLB is gonna do us any favors!

Not me, The twins have to hit 330 with runners in scoring position just to score runs. If you think this is gonna happen next year and so on your kidding yourself. What happened this year for the twins will never happen again. It was freakish how well they hit with runners in scoring position. In a perfect world i would take a mix of both, but the twins need to dump 2 regulars this year for power hitters in the future or it's gonna be 3-2 all year.

The guys on ESPN Baseball Tonight were talking about the Twins and their average with RISP...they made the point that in batting practice, the players are given situations (runner on 3rd, one out...runner on second, no out...runner on second, two out); that sort of thing. They made the point that the Twins are maybe the only team in the majors to do that...all teams talk about situational hitting, but the Twins are maybe the only team to actually practice it.

all the white sox fans no in thier heart they stole the title. if the game was here we would be in tampa playin the rays. runners on base are better than homers most days of the week IMO.

We'll see how well counting on homers for runs works in the playoffs I guess.

    • 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.
    • Holy Moses how far is that from where you are hunting? There's more strutters in that picture than I see in five years.
    •   I think they're going to be late this year
    • Well they were all n the other side of the brook and they come over to my side often, but not this morning. I wanted to check so I drove over there. Haha I was right dirty birds and the property owner does not anyone hunt there.  Maybe tomorrow I can sweet talk one of them to come over. I think a lot of hunters are waiting for later seasons. I checked a couple public land spots and no people tracks or truck tracks. 
    • lots of gobbling this morning.  Birds seem to be staying in fairly tight area of woods so far this morning. They are near, but I cant seem to talk the hens over.  Had a nice hollering match earlier, was fun, though not productive. 3 Jakes came onto my lone upright hen decoy about 8am.  They turned out to be my test birds.  First year with the bow so,  tested what I could get away with, drawing the bow.  They didnt like it!  Birds stiĺl talking here.
    • Besides the gobbles i heard in the morning nothing is moving out here! Besides 11 deer pheasant and a coyote that was 10 yard out from getting one in his boilwrmaker! 
    • my first Harley was a 1971 SG...  first year made, wish I still had it!!!
