      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 .

Sammy Sosa the next Twins DH???

Recommended Posts

mnwild

I would take him in a heartbeat but I doubt this will happen. This was from Yahoo.com

Jul 17 T.R. Sullivan, of Rangers.MLB.com, reports the Minnesota Twins are among the teams that could be interested in acquiring Texas Rangers DH Sammy Sosa before the July 31 trade deadline. The Twins this year have had low production from the designated hitter position; as of July 14, the Twins have gotten only three home runs and 38 RBI from the designated hitter spot this season. However, the team has thus far shown no interest in acquiring Sosa

It will never happen, first we wouldnt pay him what he wants, second, we wouldnt give up what it would take to get him, third he wouldnt come here anyway!

Sounds good to me....

Lew Ford or Sammy Sosa....hmmmmmmmm...

Rondell White or Sammy Sosa....hmmmmmmm....

Jeff Cirillo or Sammy Sosa...hmmmmmmmm.... even if Sammy Sosa strikes out every other at bat it is still an improvement, but it will never happen! We are just gonna wait for Rondell to come back healthy:)

Sosa make what 500k a year and how much are we paying Rondell White. I think we can afford 500k for the rest of the year.

You forgot to add Tyner to that list.

It would be nice! I just dont see it happening, I dont remember the twins ever getting any big name in the middle of the season, unless they were totally washed up.

Dreamin. I cannot believe that the owners would ever pony up the kind of money it would take to sign Sosa.

It would be great though.

I think this says it all. I'd like to see it happen, but its not Terry Ryan's style.

Seen the 500k number out there in a story about steals for this season. I don't see him being let go 500k is nothing today in baseball and I don't see the Twins giving up anything for him. Just about anyone with a heart beat could do as well as the Twins have in the DH this year.

Latest unsubstantiated rumor I heard was that the Twins were shopping Dmitri Young...he would be a nice addition to the middle of a suddenly anemic lineup.

It sounds like the Nats want Slowey...

it would be nice to get a monster bat in the line up for the twins as they make a run for the playoffs.

Sammy or Young would be a great fit. I still think they screwed up when they didnt get soriano

Sosa's numbers sure took a dive after he quit juicing... Current BA is just .239 with a mere 14 homeruns. No thanks. The Twins dont need him...

When paired with that batting average not really. I would think that there may be better options for them. Most people hear the name Sosa and instanly think of huge numbers and superstar status. I dont think the Twins need to stoop to the level of a player(cheater)like Sosa. Maybe we should try to get Bonds too?

I would take him in our left field all day and twice on sunday. If he were to help the Twins win a WS, I say go for it. Remember- the Twins used to turn on the fans in the OF when the opponents came to bat to help blow the ball back in, is that cheating?

I think that would be a great trade, we have young guns in garza, and liriano for next year.

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go. 
    • MinDak Hunter
      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.
    • Croix1959
      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping
    • IceHawk
      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
