      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 .

MINNEAPOLIS -- Third baseman Mike Lamb and the Minnesota Twins agreed Friday to a $6.6 million, two-year contract with an option for 2010.

Lamb is likely to get a chance to play regularly for the Twins, looking for more offense at third base. Nick Punto played 108 games at third this season and hit only .210 with one home run and 25 RBIs in 472 at-bats.

The 32-year-old Lamb hit .289 with 11 homers and 40 RBIs in 124 games with the Houston Astros this season. He has a career batting average of .281 with 68 homers and 313 RBIs.

Not really much to get excited about with this signing but it is a definate upgrade from Punto. Twins will have almost an entire new infield this spring with the exeption of Morneau. Should be interesting.

Definite upgrade to ANYONE we've had playing 3-bag for the last few years. When you look at the 3B FA market, there isn't much out there. He is one of the best that was left.

He gets on base at a good clip, something the Twins are dying for and hits for good power, look at his sluggin %.

With a full year of AB's, he could put up a .280/.360/.450 line. Might challenge to hit 20 HRs too. Good pickup when you look at what was available.

We gave him a 2yr deal which means we have no one close in the minors to come up and play. I don't mind the signing, better than having Punto over there.

I think it's a solid pickup. Let's remember that's it Dec. 13 and not April 30th.

I agree, the twins dont want to get the big dawgs, and it looks as thow we are going to have Santana as well. This is a good pickup.

twins need to keep santana till the trade deadline, and if they are out, they will trade him. but the twins have a good chance to win the division with our pitching with lirano coming back this year. we just need to get some offense, and they are making the changes to help in this. I think it should be a good year for the twins. laugh.gif

I can't say that I share your optimism. We lost Silva...nothing great...but throws a lot of innings and is a solid middle of the rotation type....we have no idea what Liriano will be like..... we traded Garza.... I have no problem with the Twins waiting to see how the season shakes out because right now they can't get what they want, but I can't say I think we will even contend for the Division. Detroit is loaded and the Indians are solid. I, myself am prepared for a long season....I hope you are right though grin.gif

Problem is, he has a no-trade clause and there has been specualtion that he will not waive it at the trade deadline. He would most likely wait until he hits free agency, at which time he will become the highest paid pitcher in MLB history. If we are going to trade him, it needs to be before spring training. Otherwise, shell out a few dollars and lets roll with Johan opening day starter in the new stadium. If we keep him all year and don't resign him, then Billy Smith is the same fool as the one that just quit.
