      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 .

IT doesnt stop! Morneau's status Questionable for Opener

Recommended Posts

BRADENTON, FLA. — Twins first baseman Justin Morneau worked out on the field today in Fort Myers, Fla., but did not swing a bat, leaving him questionable for Monday’s season opener.

Morneau hasn’t played in a game since Monday. He tweaked something in the middle of his back Tuesday with a swing during batting practice. With lingering stiffness, Morneau did not return to the field until today.

Before today’s game against Pittsburgh, Manager Ron Gardenhire acknowledged the team would have to consider a disabled list stint for Morneau if they didn’t see progress.

“I think today will tell me a little more,” Gardenhire said. “If he’s still feeling the effects today, where he’s not really doing much, then you start wondering what are we going to do here roster-wise? Are we going to have to do something with him too, to start the season?”

The Twins, who already have Joe Mauer and Scott Baker on the DL, will play their final spring training game Saturday against Pittsburgh. It’s unlikely Morneau will play against the Pirates, since he hasn’t taken batting practice since Tuesday.

Still, once Gardenhire heard Morneau had returned to the field, he seemed relieved.

but should he play and take a chance of making the injury even worse?

Depends what the injury acctually is, if it is just a pulled muscle then it will heal up in a few days, hopefully before the season starts, if it is something more major then he should maybe sit for awhile? Hard to say with out more details.

Personally, I think he'll be on the feild.

If Morneau can't go, Buscher will be at 1st w/ crede at 3rd. til crede pulls up lame at this rate the twins will be playing their rochester affiliate in the majors before April Is over!

It looks as though he is ready to play!

Justin Morneau tested his back with some swings in the cage Saturday morning and pronounced himself "ready" for game action.

Morneau is penciled into Saturday's exhibition finale against the Pirates. Hopefully he'll make it through the game unscathed and feel well enough to play in the season opener. Morneau finished with a line of .389/.436/.694 this spring.

In todays final pre-season game, he went 1 for 2 with 3 rbi and played 3 innings. After the game, he said he was "Good to go" for the opener according to the Twins HSOforum.

Yep...from Sporting News online:

Justin Morneau, 1B (rank: 5) - Twins

April 4, 4:51 p.m.

Back in the lineup, Justin Morneau drove in three runs to lead the Twins to a 7-6 win over the Pirates on Saturday.

Fantasy spin: Morneau was making his first appearance since developing a sore back on Tuesday. He'll be ready to go on opening day.

I am just glad that all these things are happening before any really serious ball is played. Would much rather have our guys sittin out early in the season than down the stretch.

Do you suppose Crede came over and said, "Go with the bad back, they'll give you all kinds of time off for that."?

Buscher is going to get his at bats and will play a valuable role with the team. I can see him getting many opportunities to pinch hit late in games when a left handed batter is needed and/or whenever punto is coming to the plate late in the game and a hit is needed. I suspect he will be playing 3b on occasion to give crede a day off here and there.

    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love"
