      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 .

Baker

Baker and Liriano have been great batting practice pitchers so far. They were supposed to be the 2 studs at the top of the rotation. Baker is probably still injured. Liriano looks fine out there, but grooves a fastball down the pipe at least once each at bat and it is getting drilled by the good hitting teams.

Perk and Blackie are the best we got right now.

dont worry after the all star break the twinks will turn it around, thats what they do if they would have got off to a fast start that might make me worried

Rick Anderson was on the radio today and said Baker is feeling great. Arm isn't tired at all and no soreness......Sounds like it is a confidence thing.

Shouldn't have to wait that long! Shoot it's only been two and a half weeks.

Baker pitched well today and 10Ks is a good sign...Then again, they were playing Cleveland. Hopefully he takes this into his next start.

I'm not or have I been that worried about Baker. Pitchers go through these types of things.

He'll be fine IMO!

Nice game last night, Gardy should have known better than to let him throw the 8th. Although a shutout complete game is nice, you could definitly tell he was gassed. if we scored 10 runs every game we could afford some of the 5 run innings we seem to give up so often.

Kansas City plays a lot like the Twins - work the pitchers deep into the counts - foul off a lot of pitchs until they get their pitch - try to get the starter out of of there early so they can get to the Twins bullpen. Fortunately, the Twins bullpen held up last night and Nathan is nasty like always.

Yeah...Baker kind of struggled last night, but yet got through five and only gave up one run. When a pitcher can do that on a night without his best stuff, it is good.

Baker and Slowey have come around nicely. If Liriano can get a bit more consistent, and Blackburn and Perkins can be decent at the back of the rotation, the Twins can make a run here in the second half.

But they could still use some bullpen help...

The new guy Keppel sure looks good. Hopefully he can take some of the innings and save the 8th inning boys. smile

    • Looks like ill be taken a buddy out this wed. I enjoy calling one in for somebody just as much as shooting one. Hopefully everything works out for this is only his 2nd year at it. Last year i took him and he shot a dandy bird with a 11 1/4 beard and 1 1/8" spurs and weighed a little over 23#'s.   
    • Very impressive and unexpected win. Would be nice for this to be the start of Houston’s playoffs jinx.
    • Way to go Don!
    •   thanks!!!  It's on the peg board!!!  I would have forgotten!!!!  
    • Bird down!  Ryan tagged out yesterday on the first day of the year he could hunt. It's a pretty nice Tom with 3/4" sure and an 8 3/4" beard. I'll get some pics up and it entered when I can.

Any guesses on the high score? I'm going to say 285 will win it.

    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
