      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 .

Winter meetings deals for ex-Twins

Recommended Posts

The Tigers have reached agreement with free-agent shortstop Adam Everett, according to a major-league source.

The one-year deal will be worth approximately $1 million, plus incentives, and is pending a physical.

Detroit also made official its deal with the Rangers to acquire catcher Gerald Laird, meaning the Tigers have addressed their catcher and shortstop needs in the span of about 24 hours.

Everett hit .213 in 48 games for the Twins last season. He spent seven seasons with the Astros prior to his stint in Minnesota.

Scraping the bottom of the ol' barrel. Guess they looked at our payroll, then theirs and realized money doesn't buy championships. Of course talent does, too bad they haven't figured that one out yet and are signing has beens. Royals are making some decent deals thus far in the offseason, they will be a good team in a few years, they just have to keep their pitching in line. Grienke is an animal- when the voices in his head tell him to be wink

Casey Blake will not be a Twin. The Twins do not want to give Blake a 3rd year on a new deal.

A.J. Burnett will be with the Braves or Yankees. Tejada or Wiggington could be dealt. Milton Bradley might go to the Cubs and Raul Ibanez might go to the Braves.

LAS VEGAS -- The Brewers closed the deal with free-agent third baseman Mike Lamb on Tuesday morning, inking the veteran to a one-year contract that had been in the works for several days.

Lamb, 33, finished the 2007 regular season with Milwaukee after he was released by the Twins five months into a two-year, $6.6 million contract. The Brewers are believed to have committed something close to the league minimum of $400,000 for Lamb, and the Twins will be on the hook for the rest of the $3 million they guaranteed him for 2009.

The Brewers are seeking left-handed bats this offseason and they liked what they had in Lamb, who hit .273 (3-for-11) in his brief stint with the Brewers and was not eligible for the postseason roster because Milwaukee didn't acquire him until Sept. 5. He's likely to split time at third base in 2009 with right-handed hitter Bill Hall, though Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said Monday that prospect Mat Gamel -- another left-handed hitter -- will also get a chance to win playing time.

Lamb is a .277 hitter in parts of nine seasons with the Rangers, Astros, Twins and Brewers, and his best years were in Houston, including a 14-homer, 58-RBI 2004 season and a 2006 in which he batted a career-high .307. Melvin was the Rangers' GM when Texas took Lamb in the seventh round of the 1997 First-Year Player Draft.

Dodgeras signed both Casey Blake and Mark Loretta. They gave Blake the 3rd year. 3yrs 17mil. Twins offered 2yrs 14mil.

Rafael Furcal may go to the Royals, A's, Dodgers, or Blue Jays

Royals also talking about Orlando Cabrera

Kerry Wood is either going to the Indians or Rangers for 2yr 14mil.

J.J. Putz for Prince Fielder trade is in the works.

Rays might want Delmon Young back from the Twins in a three team trade that involved Colorado and Garret Atkins going to the Twins while the Rockies get Andy Sonnastine and Edwin Jackson from the Rays.

J.J. Putz for Prince Fielder trade is in the works.

I would stay away from Putz if I were any GM in the Majors. He was on my fantasy team and had some bad arm issues most of the season. When he was somewhat healthy he got rocked. Brewers would be getting the screws turned on them if they go for it.

LENIII reports that the twins could be part of the deal that could send Jake Peavy to the Cubs. The twins trade a young pitcher and get Mark Derosa (for a year). The twins are expected to put a list of pitchers together of who they would be willing to deal.

hoepfully its not alot since derosa is a free agent after next season, but i doubt theyd take someone like Duensing

The Twins wouldnt do it, they are playing for the 2010 season, so why would they give a couple pitching prospects for renting an over payed player for a year that wouldnt resign with us anyway.

Looks like J.J. Putz is going to be the set up man for the Mets. 3 team trade that involved the Indians.

Kerry Wood is going to be the closer for the Indians

Yankees offered A.J. Burnett a 5 year deal.

I hate the Yankees. They buy everybody. 7yr-$161mil for CC. $23 mil per season. Come on. I heard he has an opt-out clause after the 3rd year.

We all hate the Yankees. Thing is however, they still fail to win the World Series every year, and now they can't even make the play-offs. They haven't learned they need 9 guys on the field with chemistry that like playing together and not 9 overpriced whiney chumps that can't get along.

CC hasn't pitched a full year in awhile. He is overweight. Give him a the other chubby overpriced guy, Joba Chamberlain a month maybe two and they will both be on the DL, sitting on the bench discussing which restaurant to go to after the game.

    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
