      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 .

Interesting Pitching Stat

Recommended Posts

SledNeck

According to Inside Edge's scouting data, no pitching staff makes hitters chase pitches out of the zone more often than the Twins (30 percent). Of the seven pitchers with the best chase percentage in the majors, four of them are with the Twins, including three members of the starting rotation (Scott Baker, Nick Blackburn and Kevin Slowey).

Chase percentage

(min. 465 pitches out of strike zone, through Monday)

Pitcher Team Chase pct.

Ramon Ramirez Royals 32.8

CC Sabathia Brewers 32.5

Scott Baker Twins 32.3

Nick Blackburn Twins 32.2

Matt Guerrier Twins 32.1

Roy Halladay Blue Jays 31.7

Kevin Slowey Twins 30.6

Here's another one that I heard a while ago. There is only one pitching staff in the MLB that has their entire starting 5 in the top 40 in ERA....You guessed it, my beloved Pale Hose!

Also, can you name the top two HR leaders in the AL?

Oh no Windy, you ain't starting on another one of those "greatest pitching staffs since Koufax/Drysdale" dreams of yours I hope.

Right on Wild!

Geno, I ain't saying...I'm just sayin! Those were the stats, ma'am, just the stats, but that was a while ago during the season before Jose took a dump on us! Pale Hose will go with a 4 man rotation thru the regular season and won't need a 5th the rest of the way, if they do, Richard or Broadway have proven to be worthy 5th men. You better be worried about your Cubbies getting shut down by the Koufax/Drysdale pitchers on the dreaded Cinncinnatti Reds team, shut down those Cubbies like a tornado siren last night!!! And the Brew Crew and Cards win....could get interesting. I think I saw Steve Bartman outside the park last night looking for a spare ticket. LOL

And you know what I am going to say in response to that already, right Geno. First I am going to say that half of the quiche eaters at the game probably don't even know the score of the game, they are just texting people on their cell phones and making plans to hit the Cubby Bear or whatever other bar is up there in "boys town" after the game. I was at the game earlier this week and the Cell was pretty full 39,000 plus. Then I will tell you that back in the day the Ford Escort was the highest selling car in the US at one point and will ask you if it was the best car at that time since it was the most popular selling car. And then you will come back with something else that I will already have an answer for, haven't we seen this movie already?

But it's fun!

So what you are saying is all those people dressed in Cubbie blue in Atlanta and Florida and Milwaukee and all the other MLge parks are wrong too?

Fess up now Windy.....you are just jealous of Cubbie favoritism, right?

End of Movie. Be kind...do not rewind.

OH Baseball and their statistics... Did the umps record on all of these pitches that they were indeed out of the strikezone?

Umps arent in charge of stats. If you look at the press box area next time your at the game and see a bunch of people working on their laptops...those are the people who do it.

The umps are in charge determining whether a pitch is in the strike zone or not last time I checked.

...so, the umps mark it down on that little card in their shirt pocket and hand it over to one of the dot com propeller heads in the press box after every game? I think not... Sure, the umps are in charge of the calls, but someone else is keeping track of all of these great stats that make MLB so unique..

BTW: Is that 'chase' stat only for swings and misses and foul balls? Seems to me a guy could have a pretty high 'chase' stat, but if they all went for base hits, that's no good...

    • leech~~
      Can't make this one but looking forward to meeting up on the next. I may even try moving around to catch some like eyeguy, instead of enjoying a nice relaxing sit in my chair and talking!! I think I still have 17 cans of beer in my basement of the 18 can case I brought last year no one drank, I can bring again!!

      Anyone been around the western edge or north side of Pine with sled or atv?

      My dad fell thru Camp Lake just north of Shakopee last weekend.  Went from 6" to less then 1.5" in an area that typically never has issues.  Lots of abnormal freezing this year, there were still open pockets Sunday afternoon.   Haven't seen it freeze like this in years (at least on our lake.)  Don't go alone on lakes you're not familiar with.  Bring a spud.

      Any info on Mayhew Lake just NE of St. Cloud? Just moved to the area and was looking to get out a small lake.

      Now is the time to talk to kids about the dangers of thin ice. As temperatures continue to dip below freezing, ice is forming on many lakes, ponds and rivers. But conditions vary across the state.  Minnesota Department of Natural Resources conservation officer Hannah Mishler has already responded to multiple ice rescue calls. “Ice, especially snow covered ice, is extremely deceptive. You can’t see dangerous cracks or the thickness of the ice under the snow,” Mishler said. With many children out of school for holiday breaks, they may look toward the newly formed ice for entertainment. “Teach your children that ice is never 100 percent safe,” cautions Mishler. “If your child is near the ice, you should be near your child.” While adults and children are recreating outdoors, they should always take precautions around any body of water during the cold water season. Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation safety outreach coordinator, advises in addition to checking conditions locally and being prepared with an ice safety kit, anyone recreating on ice should be wearing a life jacket. “A life jacket is the one piece of equipment that increases your odds of not drowning from cold water shock, hypothermia or exhaustion should you fall through the ice.” Ice safety guidelines No ice can ever be considered “safe ice,” but following these guidelines can help minimize the risk: Always wear a life jacket on the ice (except when in a vehicle). When a child is near the ice, an adult should be near the child. Caution children to stay off ponds, streams, and other bodies of water. A thin coating of ice on a pond or lake does not mean it is safe. The minimum ice thickness guidelines for new, clear ice are: 4 inches for ice fishing or other activities on foot. 5-7 inches for a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle. 8-12 inches for a car or small pickup. 12-15 inches for a medium truck. Double these minimums for white or ice covered with heavy snow. For more information, visit mndnr.gov/icesafety and mndnr.gov/boatingsafety. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
