      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 .

Most dissappointing game of the season!!

I held back on posting, because I didn't want emotions to get the best of me, but they still are, so here goes....

We get 7 spectacular innnings out of Garza, make a ridiculous error on a ball that every other shortstop in baseball could cleanly play with their eyes closed(Bartlett).....give up a 0-2 RBI single(Garza), fail to get a bunt down to move runners to 2nd and 3rd(Punto), take 3 fastballs right on the plate for a strikeout with 2 guys on(Maurer), wave a pitches for a strikeout in a clutch 2 out situation(Cuddyer). Just a very poorly played game by our beloved Twinkies!! I know it is only one game, but with a lineup that lacks as much punch as ours does, you can't make errors on routine plays, you can't go down looking at 3 fastballs if you are the number 3 hitter, the reigning batting champ with runner on. The Twins still have a decent chance, but you can't argue that the Tigers don't have a better day-day lineup, some really good starting pitching and a when they get healthy a great bullpen(except at closer)

Okay, I am done venting now. I feel better. Hopefully Santana is AUTOMATIC tonight!!

I agree. Garza was brilliant all night except for that 0-2 pitch that he let hang in there. Very poor discipline and execution at the plate all night. There were also a couple innings there where we were letting their pitcher off easy by swinging at the first pitch or two and getting out which allowed him to keep his pitch count way down. Then when we got patient, we got TOO patient. I was very disappointed as well. Let's get a win tonight!

I was at the game last night and it was very enjoyable. There are reasons why the Tigers are first and we're third. Too bad for Garza but that's how it goes; Twins haven't supported Silva all season. Oh well, that's baseball!

Thats what one gets from an average team with average players except for a few. Its hard to win with so many average at best players. Not negative, just realistic.

I love to watch the Twinkies but so many times the lack of a few better players always costs.

bad game no way. Execution??? not there. For every game the Twins play like they did on Tues night, they have 5 or 6 when they get it done. I liked Garza agst a very tough lineup. Black Magic tonight and i think we score lots of runs. the tribe lost. Were still in it, as I see the tribe dropping off......

The tribe won. They took out to stinkstox in 11.

Twins needed that game no doubt. You can't ask for better pitching. Joe Mauer is a great player obviously, but I agree on his at-bat there in the 6th. He was looking to walk and set the table there when he should have been looking to drive the ball. He let a few meatball pitches go right by. He should have been all over them. He needs to be more aggressive up there sometimes. And Cuddy was putrid in his at bat as well. That right there was our chance to win the game and we didn't get it done.

Teams can't be perfect every night. The twins lead the league in fewest errors. One bad game and everyone starts to jump off of the bandwagon. Bartlett has been playing well lately, don't crucify a guy for one bad play. Sure it was more on the routine side, but stuff happens, even the best make errors on routine plays once in a while. That's why they play the GAME. smile.gif

Tonight was another frustating game. 10 hits and only 2 runs? Bases loaded a few times and nothing. Two on in the eighth, no outs, game on the line and no runs score. How does Cuddyer go 4 for 4, Mauer 0-3, Morneau 0-3, Hunter 0-2, etc? Frustrating. We could have been up 2-0 in this series. Instead, we have beat 10-1 Bondermann just to avoid a sweep. Give credit to the Tigers.

Let's see if Baker shows his stuff tomorrow.

Wow was that a frustrating game!!

If they don't win today, I would say their goose is cooked, at least for the division.

The last three games against the Tigers, our pitching has allowed a total of 5 runs, yet we are 0-3 against them. That is pathetic.

If we don't see a trade within the next few days, I would say we are going to be sellers. There should have been a trade made before this series.

Ford, Tyner, Cirillo, Kubel, Punto, L-rod, Jones, Redmond.

Tell me which one of those guys gives you confidence at-bat in a clutch situation, other than Red-dog dropping a flare into right field? Well that is our bench and over 1/3 of our lineup. - YUCK!:D

Take it from a Tiger fan, you are not out of anything. One year ago, today, Twins were in third place, 9 1/2 games back. Three game series in July doesn't mean much, unless there's a sweep. Far too many interdivision games remain for anyone to get comfortable.

I'm still trying to figure out how we won two games in your park, scoring only four runs. Good thing we brought Maggs along on the trip. Game three starts in an hour, and I'm afraid my lunch break will be over. Good luck....ya.. right!

I have never been more frustrated as a Twins fan. I want to go to a game this weekend, but right now, I might not. If I see Mauer look at Strike 1 again all nite, I am gonna puke.

And if I hear anything about rondell white being an answer, I am gonna...I dunno what I am gonna do, but c'mon, he is not the answer. A slight upgrade? Sure, but that aint saying much.

      Sorry to hear. Being the guide-dad you want everyone to have fun. No fish on worms? Had to be the Eclipse!

      Trip didn't go as planned. I had been asking some questions on here to get some info/ideas for the trip. Greatly appreciated all the stuff you guys shared with me. Unfortunately most of it wasn't in the plans  Camped at fall lake, as this was the first time my wife tagged along in a few years, and I thought his would be the most family friendly. After getting setup on Sunday, I launched the boat and goofed around for a bit, but didn't catch anything. My daughter was using worms, and she didn't even get a nibble. Is there not much for bass in fall?   Monday we had to spend some unexpected time in town, making certain purchases. Made it to snowbank late. Trolled for lakers, but only marked ciscoes. Once we started fishing for bass, we caught a few, but then the rain fell. Had it just been me and the 2 older kids, we could have fished through it. But with my wife and the youngest, it wasn't going to happen!   Pretty much the same thing happened on Tuesday. Went to burntside, but the lake was too windy. Went back to town, let the kids play at the park, then had lunch at the boathouse (I highly recommend the motorboat burger). Then we decided to keep it close and simple, and went to miner's pit. Weather got the best of us again. At least this time, my wife caught a few fish. No trout though.   Sometimes there's more to camping trips than good fishing though. We still had lots of fun, and I'm already making some notes for my next Ely trip, which I don't even know when will happen.

      Tommy, can tell by your posts and photos that your dogs are very special to you and Bonnie.  I shed a tear or two while reading this.  I got a kick out of you telling me here after I saw you driving through Cloquet a couple years ago.  You saw my dog riding co-pilot and you mentioned that you also had a dog in the passenger seat (can't remember which one) and Bonnie in the back seat riding with the other dogs.  Good Stuff! Take care, Bill

      I pop in here a few times lately for some humor for myself, it is hard to do. No, very hard to do...but this sight makes me smile sometimes so here ya go...FYI.   Moe Rock passed August 14th  ~  4 days before what would have been his 11th birthday.
      He was our rock in many ways and was one of the smartest retrievers we have ever had in our family in 30 some years.
      If you knew Moe Rock you can understand, remember. He was so strong an fought the cancer just over FOUR MONTHS....
      Pills n tests an more pills an more tests...until well CANCER SUCKS.
      In the end the cancer wins no matter how hard he fought or how hard his TEAM fought with him and for him. Bonnie an I, the special vets an techs at Osceola Animal hospital and the top doc's, students and assistants and at the U of M vet center tried very hard and long to help him in his battle. He never changed, stood tall an strong, bright eyes an devilish smile.
      Truth is we only stayed a couple steps ahead of the cancer that took him that day at 5 PM.
      He was strong right up until he passed with Bonnie an myself holding his paws an making his passing go easy. Bother Polar Bear Boy looking on also.
      Don't make any of this easy saying this, but he was not doing good at 5 am Sunday morning as that cancer stuff just jumped him good this weekend an well,  he lost.
      We never gave in, nor did he. This weekend at the cabin he tried to enjoy himself, DID enjoy it all.  He swam, couple dock jumps, we fished morning runs an sunset, did boat rides, worked on some shore n boat small projects an ate pretty dang well. He was fine until bedtime when we knew an HE knew something was happening.
      Not good. CANCER SUCKS!
      We had a great time, Moe only showing to Bonnie an myself an his Brother Polar Bear Boy he was not feeling to good in the evenings the last week. Very sad. Never forget Moe Rock or his up north name of NoMoeToe given to him by long time guest in my boat from Capser Wyoming the late Mary Cob and his Chisago City area name the Fire Chief gave him of ThreeToeMoe. He was not only special to me but to a host of people in this area an on or around Lake Vermilion for his whole life.
      Good boy, darn good boy. One regret is not everyone that knows of Moe or knows him only online did not get to meet him in person.
      You would have enjoyed him in many ways as we all did.
      Loveable, big nut, sweet, smart, goofy, odd and a total tick that like to start fights with this brothers an then leave them to settle it while he went an ate their food or got best seat on casting deck my big black boat.
      Yup, Moe Rock was a Tick.   Any way....very sad are we, but he fought like tuff darts, a good long fight.
      Never whined a bit, did as was asked an stayed pretty much himself the whole time until that Sunday morning really.
      Not once showing anyone not in family he was sick, real sick. Still loved his truck rides, belly rubs, swimming his pool, wratling with me n Bear, watching TV, Playing on Kendel or computer with Bonnie an just plain being Moe to his brother Bear Boy...big smiles. Fishing, how he love3d fishen...mostly topwater of any kind, but he would go with me anytime, anytime....true fish hound was he, our sweet Moezy.
      I did not tell anyone about Moe rock but Mom Joanne as figured he might kick cancer to the curb an well..........
      Never gave up hope but most times cancer wins in retriever hounds, even our sweet Moe Rock.
      PEACE!
      Very Sad. Now running with his fellow Mallard Island Marauders that crossed over before him, Barney Toonder, Homer J., Bailey, Beckey, Buddy.....plus Jack n Ev the Kats.
      Some good party.....good food, big smiles and all that go with them....all very special. Lov ya Moe......I miss you my boy....rest easy until we meet again.   Keep on rocken!   Tommy
