      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 .

Twins sign Adam Everett

Thursday, December 13th, 2007 The Twins have signed former Houston Astros shortstop Adam Everett, a team official confirmed to the Star Tribune on Thursday.

The signing was originally reported by FoxSports and La Velle had the news confirmed. The Twins look for Everett to be their starting shortstop. Scouts rave about his defense. The Astros non-tendered Everett following their trade Wednesday for Baltimore shortstop Miguel Tejada.

Everett, who turns 31 on Feb. 2, batted .232 with a .281 on-base percentage and .318 slugging percentage in 66 games with the Astros last season and missed three months with a broken leg. His career batting average is .248

This isnt exactly filling ang offensive holes in our lineup. But I guess it isnt down grading from what we had either.

Good glove and mediocre bat. He hit 11 homers in 05 but struck out over 100 times, too. Guess that means Casilla starts the season at Rochester.

It is too downgrading offensively, and at a major clip.

A .281 OBP, that has to be one of the worst in the league. Same with his .318 slugging. Speaking of slug, this guy sounds like one. I would rather give Ploufe or Casilla or someone a shot than this garbage. Juan Castro is a better player than Everett. He better just be signed to a minor league deal or be used as a defensive replacement, because if this is what we are gonna roll with at SS, then there is no hope for them.

Wow what a pickup! We have to have the worst offensive infield in baseball.

Our only hope is that he was just brought in to compete for a job or that he will be used off the bench late in games. You sure think we could have picked someone up cheaper than 2.8 mill though. That leads me to believe they want to start the season with him as the starting SS. crazy.gif

I think Harris will play 2B. That would still leave Casilla and little Nicky with nowhere to play though. Hopefully Casilla grows up alot this year and grabs the job. If he can get on base at a .350 or better clip, slot him in as a leadoff hitter. Once on the bases, he is exciting to watch.

Willy --

I agree with you. Castilla is fun to watch and I hope he can make some big strides.

Everett is a horrible offensive player, but a nice fielder. I am a little surprised by this signing. I hope somebody beats him out.

I don't get it. If they didn't trade Harris to fill the SS slot, why the h*ll did they trade Bartlett? To use Harris as a utility guy? We already have too many of those.

bartlet was tough to let go in my opinion, but it was probally what the devil rays wanted to get young. the twins do not loose much for offense, and gain defense. who knows, a different team, and new chemistry, he may do very good for the twins.

we still need a DH!!!!!!!

We will be just fine at DH with Kubel. He hit pretty well the last couple months of the season.

kubel is average or below average at best. we need a hitter that will hit 30+ homers and 100+ rbi's.

remember we just lost a 30 100 guy in hunter.

KUBEL WILL RAKE THIS YEAR. MARK IT DOWN!!

Now this signing makes a little more sense. Lamb is by all accounts a below average fielder, Everett one of the best in the game. Plus they know each other. Should work out okay.

Kubel's numbers aren't all that different than Young's, I hate to tell you. Hopefully his knee is fully healed & he starts to show what he promised to do in his minor league days.
