      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 .

if the Twins signed Mike Sweeney? I see the Royals aren't interested, as a strict DH, can't be any worse than Rondell White. More than likely, 20 HR potential, as long as they aren't like the Royals and think he still has 1st base potential- THAT only adds to his DL time. I think he'd be a great fit in the clubhouse

Sweeney would be a great fit for the Twins as a DH only. The second you put him out in the field he'll end up on the DL for 3-4 months. If healthy all year I would say 20 HR's would be easily attained for him and would expect more like 30+ type of production out of him. He's always been a really good player but is injured WAY too often. I would take a shot with him at DH.

The only way I take Sweeney is with a one year minimum contract. Possibly a minor league one. He is a stretch to play any position other than DH. He doesn't have alot of value. Someone will take a flyer if he is open minded. If not, he will retire.

I really honestly want JASON KUBEL as our everyday DH though. He is gonna have a breakout year this year. Look for him to hit in the .260-.290 range and jack 20 or better, might drive in close to 100 if he gets the at-bats. For all this talk we have had of top prospects, Kubel was a top 10 hitting prospect in all of baseball until he got hurt. When healthy and now that he has adjusted to MLB pitching, he can and will rake.

I would take a flyer on Sweeney with a 1yr deal. If he explodes then you lose him to free agency next year when he wants big bucks. If Sweeney bats left handed he is still better than Rondell White.

I think the Twins still need a CF. They have 4 OF right now in Monroe, Cuddyer, Kubel, and Young. Here are some free agents that could fill the CF position.

Mike Cameron,Darin Erstad,Kenny Lofton,Corey Patterson,and Scott Podsednik

Possible DH

Mike Sweeney,Sean Casey,Jeff Conine,Tony Clark,Erubiel Durazo,Robert Fick,Shea Hilenbrand,Eric Hinske,Ryan Klesko,

Russel Branyan,Morgan Ensberg,Corey Koskie,Barry Bonds,Luis Gonzalez,Shawn Green,Geoff Jenkins,Reggie Sanders,Sammy Sosa

Brad Wilkerson,Preston Wilson, and Mike Piazza

I see all these players siging 1yr deals with teams. I don't see the Twins being in the race this year so if they sign one of these guys and then deal him at the deadline and get a prospect in return that would be fine with me. Sorry to jack the thread.

I honestly think Jason Kubel needs to see an eye doctor, he squints worse than G W, and he seems to not be able to see the ball very good.

Sweeney wouldn't be the worst pickup but he can't do much more than play first and DH and that isn't the track record of players who get a sniff with the Twins.]

Kubel is a spare slap. At the end of the 2008 season, he'll be next Lew Ford who never reached expectations.

i think he would be a great player for the twins. Would fit in well with the guys that we still have here in the system.

The twins have to get a CF, and we need to get someone to play short.

were there ever large lew ford expectations??? even after his decent year, the majority of people couldnt have expected him to exceed or even match that output.

You just remember him going down in 3 pitches in a big spot in the playoffs against the yankees. There is nothing else to base that opinion on. He has solid numbers for a guy that hasn't been given a starting job yet. Even top prospects usually take a few years in the bigs before they really produce. Compare his numbers to Cuddyer or Morneau when they first came up. Kubel's are better in most categories.

He will be a cornerstone of this team for years. Bring his name up in trade talks to other teams and he would bring a nice return. This isn't some scrub like Jason Tyner we are talking about here.

      I'll also be up this weekend. Fishing Friday and Saturday and putting the boat away on Sunday. Where are people finding the eyes and what are they biting on? Jigs, rigs, slip bobers? I don't do led core or jigging raps. I'll be on Daisy Bay, so any place from Big to Frazer is in play. Thanks!

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though
