      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 .

Cabrera and D-Train headed for Detroit

Recommended Posts

maros91

Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis got traded to the Detroit Tigers for 6 prospects, one of them Andrew Miller. Detroit's lineup becomes potent adding Cabrera.

1. Curtis Granderson

2. Edgar Renteria

3. Carlos Guillen

4. Magglio Ordonez

5. Miguel Cabrera

6. Gary Sheffield

7. Ivan Rodriguez

8. Jacque Jones

9. Placido Polanco

SP

1. Justin Verlander

2. Kenny Rogers

3. Jeremy Bonderman

4. Dontrelle Willis

5. Nate Robertson

Looks like the Tigers want to make a serious run at the World Series next year. They should win the Central with Cleveland on their heels.

Not a good trade for Detroit. They gave up a five tool CF, and a pitcher in Miller who is actually headed in the right direction. Willis is young, but heading in the wrong direction.

Who knows who the 4 other prospects are as well.

It will definitely strengthen the Tigers next year... But I don't think it will fare that well for them in the future.

And how does a guy like Polanco hit 9th? They gotta keep him as the #2 hitter... Throw the newcomer Renteria somewhere else.

I was just throwing them out there as they came to mind. Renteria was just acquired this offseason so he was one of the firsts to pop up.

Detroit is going to be a tough team to beat this year. Yeah they gave up alot to get those 2 but they want to put a winning product on the field for the fans unlike the Twins.

They look good on paper.

Too bad we won't trade within the division, If the prospects are as good as you say. I say if you feel like it makes your team better, either now or for the future make the trade, regardless of what league or division the teams are in.

They will be tough for a couple years. However, they traded away their future to try to win it all now. Even better excuse for the Twins to rebuild and be competetive when the new stadium opens and the Tigs and Tribe are starting to age a bit.

Also, with Detriot getting Cabrera, I think it opens up more trading partners for the Twins. The same players up for big for Cabrera would be great for the Twins if they can get those west coast teams into the picture.

PS What about Inge for 3rd here? He hits for power and plays good defense. His strikeouts are high though.

Brandon Inge doesn't do anything for me. A below average hitter and very overpaid. I'd rather take my chances on a young guy that hasn't proven anything, but has some potential. Inge was paid $4.9 million in '07. Has only had one year where he hit better than .261 and only one year where he's had more than 16 homers. At the price Inge would come at, I'm not a fan of that option.

You know what I like about this trade for Detroilet? A proven star for a bunch of prospects. The odds are none of the prospects turn into a star, no matter what the hype. C'mon Twins.....

This trade will almost guarentee that the Yanks will be back in the picture for Santana. They see and hear rumblings of the Tigers AND Red Sox putting together line-ups like they are and it will drive them crazy. My bet is that Santana will be a Yankee before the new year arrives.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe
