      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 DH

Recommended Posts

Scott K

I was just looking through some of the available players that could be a good DH for the Twins. We some what discussed Kubel, but looking outside of the Twins.

Piazza? Old, has a good bat yet.

Bonds? Comes with alot of problems.

There are a few more free agents out there, but what would you guys think if the Twins signed Bonds? Would you welcome him, or boo him off the field?

I'd take him, but it is a no chance that it happens. I don't want Piazza here either. Kubel will put up better numbers than him, Bonds would most likely be the best option as far as production goes, but do you think the Twins would sign him? There aren't any teams willing to sign him right now.

Sosa is still out there? - YUCK!

Tony Clark?

Luis Gonzales?

this is what SI.com had about Barry and the Twins-

Twins: The idea of the Twins loading up to make one last run for a title with Johan Santana is a nice fantasy, but even with Bonds in the lineup, they'd lack the team to make it happen, and the Twins aren't exactly known for making big free-agent splashes.

I think Kubel would make a good everyday DH he needs the at bats.

Before Christmas I was talking with Jake Mauer Sr at his home and he was talking real high about kubel, the old man was trying to tell me he would lead the majors in homers one of these years he just needs to play everyday. Never know what could happen.

We've seen the power of Kubel. Sometimes he mis-hits the ball and it flies over the fence. I just wish he'd swing a little more freely. Looking at all those strikes drives me nuts when he could be making deposits.

If the Twins hadn't signed Monroe, there'd be a pretty good chance they'd add someone like Clark. But they have to many spare infielders at this point so I don't see it happening.

Pencil in a Kubel/Monroe split -- i am ok with that, I guess.

I would rather see kubel play everyday than see monroe splitting time with him, just because i would like to see what kubel can do with a full season playing everyday. There's a reason he was a top 5 prospect in all of major league baseball before he got hurt, if he hadn't gotten hurt he would already be an above average hitter. I think if playing everyday he will probably hit 280 to 300 with 15-20 homeruns and 80-100 rbi's. Last week one of the writers for si or espn had him in the players most likely to have breakout seasons next year. We will see but i really hope they give him the opportunity to play everyday and show people why he was such a highly regarded prospect up until his injury.

Kubel was on the fast track and I would like to see what he could do on a full season too, but I would think 425 AB might be the most he will see.

I guess it depends on what happens in Center. Monroe, cuddy and Young could run around in center opening more ABs for Kubel.
