      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 .

7/19 Twins vs Detroit

Recommended Posts

CodyDawg

Well so far, the Twins have looked like themselves. Nary a hit once through the order. Pathetic. Last 3 and 1/3 games vs Detroit....2 runs. But Bartlett has another error.

Can you imagine our pitchers?? I bet they wanna trade in our offense for the New Berlin AA teams.

We can choose to look at the bright side. 4 shut out innings by our 5th starter. I'll take what I can get.

Good news: 5 shut out innings by Baker.

Bad news: 5 futile innings by our offense.

i am shocked they left Baker in for the 7th. They had the chance to take him out to give him the chance to get the win. He was already at 90 pitches and they have a rested bullpen. One innning to many.

bottom of the 8th. I have another beetch. I work in Shoreview. You know, 35W and the new Hwy 10. AND I CANNOT GET THE GAME ON THE RADIO! what a worthless station 1500 is.

Anyway, what happened to Morneau? he was out somehow, but I cant tell how. As much as I like Morneau, about the only complaint I can make about him is he needs to improve his baserunning.

Bottom of the ninth. tie score. We need one run to win. All we need is a jack and it is over. Lets see, we have Punto (1 hr), Tyner (O career hrs), and Castillo (0 hrs) coming up. We will be lucky to score with 3 singles. Ugggh. I love my Twins, but they are sure trying my patience.

Wild pitch, he started running for home and the ball bounced right back to the catcher. Caught between 3rd and home the catcher threw to third and Morneau rose his shoulder so the ball would hit him. Called out.

So is it time to start selling our players, or do you think, we should still buy?

I cannot believe they left baker in that long. Seems they always leave the starter in to long and they have a bad inning when you can see they are having trouble. I'm no wizzard but, I tell my wife all the time, watch them leave the starter in to long and let another 2-3 runs score. We dont have the bats to get those back.

Last year was a great run but I cannot in any way see this again this season. I do keep watching but its getting old, fast.

Wandering,

Maybe we can combine the Twinks and my beloved Pale Hose and have one huge garage sale of players???

I don't think the Twinks or Sox have enough in the tank this year to overtake the Tribe let alone the Kitties. Maybe we can package players in the garage sale......

Nick Punto and Juan Uribe

Tyner and Ryan Buckvich

Let's get some garage sale signs and start putting them up all over New York, Boston and LA...going to the highest bidder LOL

Windy

The problem is, I dont think anybody wants them players. The only players they are going to want are the ones we dont want to get rid of.

It would be great to dump all of them guys, then rebuild next year, but the ones teams are going to want are torii, johan, justin, cuddy. Although thanks to the white sox for beating the tribe a few times, it keeps the wild card in reach.

Dan Barreiro yesterday said we need to trade Mauer. Thought that was interesting.

I heard that also, I dont agree, we have him locked for a few years, if we are going to trade lets dump the up coming big unsignable contracts like hunter, castillo, nathan, then try to see if someone will take silva, punto, kubal, tyner, ect... Then maybe we can sign justin, johan.

Baker left in too long again yet Johan gets the hook with a shutout working.

Dan Barreiro was just trying to get a rise for his show.

The Sox are totally out of it and we will pass Cleveland but I do expect the Yankees to keep steamrolling which makes it's tough.

NEVER GIVE UP!

Being a lifelong Cub fan has taught me to enjoy the role of "spoiler" - something to consider once your team is out of it.

Barrero's take on trading Nathan b4 the deadline was right on though, we have Neshek who has a better Opp BA, and a ready-made closer... Trading Nathan, you should be able to get some power for a top 3 closer... And the trading Mauer thing is just stupid.

      I have a number of family and friends fishing the river Thursday thru Sunday this week.  No reports yet.  I will pass them along as soon as i hear.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.

      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish

      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff
    • PSU
      Lot's of walleyes to be had, but most for me seem to be smaller (8-10 inches)
