      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!

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 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.

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)

    • The only thing to use them for, If I had one!  
    • Utube Randy Newberg spring bear hunts. He has a ton of DIY info on spring bear hunting
    • I've never used electric jacks, or hydro. I've heard they are pretty nice, and guys like them. It will be interesting to see how you feel about them after a season or two. I'd like to hear your input on them after you've used them awhile.
    • Yes, out of 100lb logs so they can't carry it away!
    • Really ufatz, that's how tomorrow  will affect fishing?? It all depends on what your fishing for. If I'm just off the flats chasing walleyes it would be interesting to see if they work there way up on top mid day. Probably not. To much of a short window.. 
    • Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.
    • My bait is getting hit but the bear does not like the large, cinnamon gum drops i added to the bait! He will drag them out and move on to other tasty treats. I do have red licorice to add next time.
    • 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.
