      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 .

Pre season Twins predictions......................

Recommended Posts

Throw em out there and lets all see how stupid or smart we are in 6 months.....

MINE:

The starting outfield will be

Young, Gomez and Span for the Majority of the season........

Cuddy, Gomez, Span, Gardy loves Cuddy. I would still think that Young still gets tons of PT though. I think they will rotate them enough so that all 4 of them see the field equally and of course playing the hot hand when someone has one.

I would like to see Span in there at all times though, we need his approach at the plate in the leadoff spot.

We need to get it rolling and get back on top the central. Gardy will have the lineup rolling and ready for some action. Looks like there going in the right direction with the players there putting on the field.

1) Cleveland 92 wins

2) Detroit 89 wins

3) Twins 87 wins

Starters are spotty at the beginning.

Bullpen blows up from being over worked.

July 12th Delmon Young gets traded.

Is that what you are looking for? grin

I have the Royals finishing ahead of the Tigers again this season. I don't care how much money they spend on that team, they are spending it on older players and they will have plenty of people sitting on the bench again this season on the DL.

I can see Mauer adding his third batting title...

Morneau in the top three in MVP voting again...

Nathan getting only 38 saves due to the bullpen not getting the game to him...

Gomez spends much of the year in triple-A. Gives him a chance to mature and get all the playing time. As much potential he has, he needs to get his head in the game,or at least understand what will be expected of him, at the plate...

The teams fielding percentage goes back up to where we expect it...

Killer injuries might be someone like Baker, Casilla, or Redmond, Crede is a given...

Fall out of the race with four games left in the season...

Bill Smith named general manager of the year.

Cuddyer bats .289 with 23HR's and 113 RBI. Wins A.L. comeback player of the year.

Or

Cuddyer trips and falls on shoelace while getting off the bus before Twins first game breaking both wrists and nose. Is inactivated for entire 2009 season.

Gomez will NOT be in AAA. He will be the starting CFer for us for at least 130 games I'll bet.

Baker winning 18 is about the only one of those predictions I think has a reasonable chance of coming true. If Baker stays healthy, this will be the year he gets noticed around the league. If the Twins were smart, they would ink him long-term before the season starts.

I think... Gardy will start Cuddyer in right and keep him there until he plays himself to the bench or gets hurt, in either case, Span will take over...

Crede will have a great year at third, 25/100 at the plate...

Liriano will win the Cy Young.

Thats my predictions anyway.

pre-season twins prediction?

I predict they will win more than they lose........ grin

With 4 great outfielders, I don't see Kubel getting playing time ....except as DH. The good part about having so many good ones is they can all get days off, and stay stronger late in the season. I thought they faded bigtime late last year. I think Cuddy will spell Morneau at first now and then also. Gotta keep him fresher also.

My regular season prediction....92 wins. Gonna be a dogfight

(black and blue baseball division), with improvement in several teams.

The Twins will win the division this year.

Mauer, Morneau, and Nathan will be All Stars.

Twins, Indians, White Sox, Royals, and Tigers.

Twins make a trade at the deadline for bullpen help.

    • Great catch for that spot!  
    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
    • CM, what is Chi doing with Hossa?  If Parise can't go or only can give 75% why not shelf him like Chi did with Hossa and save that cap space.
    • Stealing this idea from the old "Meat Sales" thread, where people share info on great deals grocery stores are currently running. Since we're getting close to the hard water season, I thought we could create a thread where people can share any good deals on ice fishing gear or apparel. Anything goes, if you see a sale on ice fishing equipment and think others might be interested in it, let us know.
    • This is a common misconception with LTIR. I too, thought it meant we "saved" money until I read up on it recently. What LTIR actually allows is for a team to go OVER the cap during a player(s) on LTIR, but once they return, they have to get back under the cap. So, true, it would allow them to spend more, but over the long haul it wouldn't be something they could go out and get someone to fill in without haven't to do something when the LTIR players return.
    • Population is up in NW WI where I hunt public land for deer.  I see grouse every time I go to deer stands or scouting, which is much improved over even a couple years ago.  I just can't get one to stand still for a bow shot, they are very skittish over there.  
    • NW Wisconsin public land.  New scrapes started appearing mid last week.   A couple were freshly hit on Sunday when I was out.  None were very big.    Interestingly I did see a small 6pt buck in the open at lunch time while I was scouting spots, and based on the direction he was going he was working his way to a logging road that had a scrape and tracks on it.
