      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 .

Trade idea?

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

How about trading Santana for Brad Hawpe and Garrett Atkins. Maybe we could get a couple of minors as well.

Some people might see this trade as bad for the Rockies but they have NO PROBLEM filling in position players -- even some like Hawpe and Atkins.

Others say we can't trade Santana -- we HAVE to. We can't keep everyone so he is the most likely player on the team to be moved. Like the Viola deal I guess.

Just wondering what you guys think of that.

Thanks

I think to move Santana we have to get a starting pitcher or starting pitcher prospects in return.

Trade Santana for a starting RF and CF. I heard the other weekend they are moving Cuddy to 3b next year.

I see the brewers released Corey Koske,or are going to be. If he was healthy, and willing to take a pay cut, I would take him back on 3rd, before putting Cuddy there. With Cuddies arm, we need him in the out field!

I agree -- Cuddy needs to stay in right field. As far as a deal -- this organization needs hitting prospects a lot more than pitching

I wouldn't mind the first rumor...David Wright and a couple of prospects from the Met's.

I sure hope not. Last time they tried that, it didn't work out at all. He needs to stay in RF with his cannon.

I don't think there is any chance the Mets would trade Wright.

That would be nice ...

The Rockies deal might be better in the long run.

IMO, it would be stupid to trade away their best pitcher/ one of the league's best pitchers. I think there has to be better ways to improve. Whether it be a different trade or the twins always productive farm system. I didn't watch as much this year as most years and don't know what they have coming up, but imo DON'T TRADE YOUR BEST PLAYER.

Ely --

I hear what you are saying, but Smilin' Carl will not open his wallet, and if you listen to Sid, we should all feel sorry for him.

There is NOTHING in the farm system that can hit a ball. Our only option is to trade him or let him go for nothing via free agency.

dahit,

Who is Sid?

Also me being out of state all summer I didn't get the normal twins exposure and info I'm used to. Thats too bad there is nothing in the farm system.

If they do trade him, I hope they get a good starting pitcher plus another quality player/ prospects.

Oh -- That is Sid Hartman -- the guy that thinks he knows everything at the Star/Tribune.

The farm system has a good amount of top pitching prospects but Zippo on the position players. That is why we need hitters for Santana and pitching prospects.

Quite the guy Sid is. A couple of weeks back he said that if Hunter signs with another team the Twins will: (A)Have a player on the current roster play CF, (B) make a trade that will bring a CF to the club, © Promote a player from the minor leagues, or (D) Sign a free agent to play CF. Are you sure about that Sid(Captain Obvious)? I thought I heard that the Twins were going to be selling raffle tickets to the general public and the winner would play in CF.

Santana isn't nearly as effective as he used to be and the numbers show that. I'd bet he'll go sometime next year before the July trading deadline. He'd become Bert Bonser in Colorado.

We've been so spoiled by having one of the best pitchers in baseball at the front of our rotation for the past few years that the guy slips from "best" to "one of the best" for a couple of months & people start calling him Bonser? Brilliant.

Although I'm sure that there are lots of GMs out there that will pause now that they "know" Santana isn't "nearly as effective as he used to be". Perhaps the Twins will be able to afford this less "effective" version of Santana after all, since he's now on Bonser's plane. smirk.gif Heck, pocket change should do it!

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case

      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.
    • Wanderer
      Yep, that’s what I’ve heard.  I’ve used loose powder quite a bit before.  My first ML was Hawken kit gun in 50 cal.  True black powder in an actual powder horn.  Patch and ball.   The only thing I didn’t like about ML season back then is I couldn’t wear the traditional clothes too!
    • Naturboy
      Lots of fresh ice out there. With the snow we have gotten the last few days you won’t be able to see the difference between the older and newer ice so don’t forget to check. There were open water spots on most lakes 2 days ago that are now covered. CHECK for your self.  Also lots of trash already on a lake I was on, slobs, throw it in your own car if you don’t mind looking at it.

      If he is going to fish them from a kayak I would suggest getting him a boga grip that way he can get it out of the water

      Thanks for arranging this MM.  Wish I could make it.  I'm sure it'll be a great time!

      I heard of a ranger/ice castle out from the Pelican access last weekend.  Any truth to that?  Some people have no fear.

      You will like the Blackhorn powder as long as you are used to using loose powder and not pellets. It burns much cleaner making reloads much easier. I clean my muzzleloader the same way as all my other guns now. Just remember that you don't have to use as many grains of powder with the 209. The max recommended is 120 grains. I shot 100 grains of pyrodex but dropped to 90 with the 209.
