      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 .

Player to be named later

This is something about trades I have never understood and I hear it all the time. What if the team getting the player wants too good of a player and the team giving the player refuses to give him away and neither one will budge or come to any agreement. What happens then? How is this decided? 3rd party arbitrator?

Thanks to anyone who can explain this.

It is usually a throw in type player. A low level prospect or an organization filler as the Twins like to call it.

A Drew Butera type player.

Don't both teams have to agree? And what if they don't?

I don't know, but my guess is that it is already agreed but just not made public.

Now, who remembers the story about the guy that was traded for himself? Can't remember how it went, but I'm pretty sure it happened at least once.

And then there are the guys actually traded for inanimate objects.

The one that really gets me is when a coach is hired away and the other team gets some players for compensation.

And how does that story go about the Baseball Commissioner disallowing a trade? I think it was back in the days of Charlie O breaking up the A's.

Usually, there is a short of list of a few or maybe even a half-dozen players that both teams have agreed on, and the 'receiving' team gets to pick the one they want...it is usually because they want to look at the players a bit more or maybe complete a physical exam.

Sometimes it may be incentive based. If Monroe rocks they get this guy if he sux they get that guy, or nobody, or a very low draft pick etc.

I think I saw something about that in the "Baseball as America" display that came to the MN History Center. Anybody remember the details?

After a bit of research, I came up with this little nugget:

"In April 1962, the Mets traded catcher Harry Chiti to the Indians for a player to be named later. On June 15, the Mets received the player to be named later, who turned out to be Chiti, making Chiti the first player to be traded for himself. In 1987, in the same sort of scenario, Cubs pitcher Dickie Noles was also traded for himself."

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
