      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 .

I could live with this lineup....

Recommended Posts

After reading something about the Angels possibly being interested in Manny Ramirez, I got to thinking. How much fun would it be to have him on our club? I know he costs way too much $$$ and some believe he isn't a TEAM guy, but think about this lineup:

1. Span RF

2. Casilla 2B

3. Mauer C

4. Ramirez LF

5. Morneau 1B

6. Cuddyer 3B

7. Kubel/Young DH

8. Punto SS

9. Gomez CF

I know, I know it will never happen, but that is a tough lineup. Remember all that extra $$$ the new stadium is supposed to generate. We would have to move Cuddy to 3rd, but for Manny.... I would move Cuddy to catcher and Mauer to 3rd!

I wouldn't want to move them. I was just stating that to get Manny, I would be willing to move a lot of people, a lot of places!

Let me see...Manny or Young in LF????Is Kubel the defensive replacement for them??? confused

Young would set the record for DH with fewest pitches thrown to him.

Why does everyone assume Mauer would be a fit at 3rd?? To save his knees, I see him more than likely in the outfield or DH with an occasional relief at catcher (maybe once every week or every two weeks)

I could see Manny in LF, the only question being, is he any better of an outfielder then Delmon??? Delmon's might be physical, or youth...Manny's is ?????

I think Manny gets a bad rap for his defense. Sure, he has those highlight reels of doing dumb things, but the guy can play the outfield pretty well. The way he hits, I don't really care how he plays the field.

I can't believe someone wants to start the Young/Manny debate... you really want Young up to bat in a key spot late with runners in scoring position over Manny??

I sympathize with the Cuddyer makes me vomit comment, but I think he is one of if not the clubhouse leader of the team. If he can stay healthy, hit .270 with 20 HR's, I don't care how he plays the field, wherever he plays!

This is all I have been asking for the last 6-7 years. A big named power threat in the middle of the line-up. Can you imagine the pitches our MVP would see if we just added 1 bat. Not saying it has to be the caliber of Manny, but just 1 proven stud would make the Twins not just a division contender, maybe a world series? Oh thats right, Pohlad is our owner.

What about the Mariners' Adrian Beltre? or the Rockies Garrett Atkins?

We could give up an OF (Young) and Boof Bonsor and a couple minor league pitchers (Phil Humber from the Santana trade could be one).

The Twins tried trading for Beltre last year, but the Mariners wouldn't part with him for some reason. I remember the Twins commentators talking about how stupid the Mariners were hanging onto their older "talent" when they could get some decent youth for them.

Ummmmmmmm...Ibanez has hit 30+ HR exactly once.

people have a tendency to recall their one best season and sometimes mistakenly think that the one season a typical stat year. (kind of like those that state that Cuddyer is a power hitter because he it 20+ homers one season a few moons ago)

    • Rigid hitch and reflectors on the back of the house and you should be good to go.
    • It wouldn't be any different than pulling a cat cutter or something similar...
    • I have heard as far on trailers every year the lugs should be removed and greased with some sort of oil or anti seize to prevent rust or seizeing of lugs. This could be the issue or there just torqued on good.
    • Hey guys, I have many small lakes within a few miles of home and I’m right on the groomed trail and was always curious if it’s leagal to tow my flip over/ large otter sled behind my snowmobile on the trails to the lakes. I’ve looked around and can’t find an awsner I could have swore years ago it was ok as long as it was towed wth some sort of a solid tow hitch which I have on both. Do does anyone know it this is legal or not planning on trying out a small lake this weekend and would rather ride there then drive.
    • Might want to have a talk with that tire shop, and have them properly reinstall all the other lug nuts before you have to. Plus, if any break they can fix them now. If any brake pulsation occurred after overtightening, that's one more thing to talk about. I also worry about stress factors on the studs. Once a bolt is stretched, it's done. About the only way to check for that is to get an OE stud and compare lengths. Cheater bar force likely means they were at least 3-4 times overtightened, maybe more. But, if you have uncapped nuts on an uncapped wheel allowing corrosion, it's on you.   Torque sticks are better than nothing but really should only be used to snug them down, then finish with a torque wrench.
    •   They should use a Torque stick when putting them on, but none do. Does she have the craapy lugs with the "Tin foil" cap over the nut? I love how those round off. I replaced all the Tin foil lug nuts on my SUV and snowmobile trailer with solid SS lug nuts. They cost more but, I hope to not be sitting half in half out of a snow cover ditch in the middle of no where trying to get striped lugs off!
    • Aluminum or steel wheel?
    • Nice of the Blues to go 4-5-1 in their last ten, they only have 1 point on us but we have two games in game. 
    • It's a red shrimp. Found one in St. Louis river. International shipping hauls this dump over here and then they harass the citizens about spreading it and cleaning it up.
