      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 .

Your first ex-Twins to be for 2008

Recommended Posts

Lefthanders Dennys Reyes and Eddie Guardado and infielder Nick Punto were among 65 players who filed for free agency on Thursday, the first day players could do so.

Punto, who batted .284 with two homers, 28 RBI and 15 stolen bases this season, has expressed strong interest in re-signing with the Twins. The club, however, might look to upgrade at shortstop while leaving Alexi Casilla at second base. It's unclear if Punto would accept a utility role.

Reyes, 3-0 with a 2.33 ERA, might not return as he could fetch up to $4 million a year as a free agent. The Twins liked what they saw from rookie Jose Mijares during a late-season stint and might decide to use him and Craig Breslow as left-handed specialists.

Guardado, acquired from Texas on Aug. 28, isn't expected to re-sign with the club.

Players can file for free agency for 15 days following the end of the World Series.

Of the 3 it would be nice if they could keep Punto. The others wont hurt to see go. Eddy was washed up, and Reyes was a specialty guy only comming in to see a few hitters at a time.

If they split, we get more draft picks, so bye guys.

Punto will re-sign with the Twins. He likes it here. As far as his role, it seems like every year they want to use him as a utility player, but every year he ends up playing most of the time, due to players getting hurt. IMO

G.C.

I would like to keep Punto. He's quite valuable to our team IMO. We can pretty much throw him anywhere in the field and can expect gold glove type defense, while he holds his own at the plate. This last year really showed us what Punto means to us.

Blalock is done and Salty is a better 1-sacker than catcher. The twins are good at 2 and 3. It wouldn't surprise me if the twins moved L during spring training.

Just think, last pre-season the Phillies were shopping Pat the Bat Burrell heavy. After watching the post season games he played in, I wish we could have worked something out

I bet he would have been fantastic at the Dome too. Finally this year he came around in Philly. I didn't think he would with all that pressure from those nasty fans.

They may as well re-sign those three, the way the twins are they will just replace them with 3 other players that perform the exact same. By re-signing them, then they don't have to pay extra $ for different names being put on a jersey

Get rid of Reyes...his specialty is blowing the lead.I would stop watching the game when Reyes came in and start again when he left the game. If he has to face more than one batter the the score is either tied or behind after that. and that even if they had a big lead.

You just described the entire Twins middle relief, not just Reyes. Crain and Guerrier are just as bad.

REYES IS A HELLUVA LOT MORE DEPENDABLE THAN CRANE OR GUERRIER

huh? guerrier until mid year was good, then overused and tired out. reyes was awful all year. there is more to pitching than ERA. Reyes came into 11 ball games this year without recording an out. He also was incredibly bad with inherited runners (which dont reflect on ERA).

with brewslow and mijares the big sweat doesn't do anything for this team

My point was all of the Twins middle relief was scary last season, thats why I was screaming for Nathan to get some 2 inning saves, we blew a ton of leads in the 7th & 8th innings last season, none were reliable.

Get rid of all 3.
I'm still tellin ya, it would be cheaper for the uniform costs if they kept them, this is the twins after all. That, or sign 3 different players whose last names are reyes, guardado and punto, heck even hunter, santana and guzman too.
