      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 .

Detroit series

Recommended Posts

Trainman

Big series coming up at Detroit. I hope Liriano is ready to go. Mike Smith did pretty average today. We need to somehow claw our way ahead into the wildcard standings. Detroit just won 3 games by 1 point. Twins hitting is pretty hot right now. Let's see what happens!!

I hope that was the last time we see Mike Smith. With his 89 mph fastball and no control. frown.gif Trade him to the royals. grin.gif Anyone and everyone hits the royals! It will be a fun series against Detroit. Hopefully we don't get crushed again...

I agree- big series agst the Tigers. Potential ALCS matchup, as first two games of this potential ALCS would be played in Detriot. But no bigger than when we play the W.sox and Red sox-- teams we play on the road in the future.

I think I like the Twins chances better on the road right now (won 8 in a row). If we can give Liranio a 2 run lead like the Tigers did for Miner 10 days ago-- I like our chances.

Sled --

I think they are more concerned about "freaking" Garza out getting him to the show early. Smith is not in furute plans, in my opinion.

BTW -- Bring up Garza -- Sink or swim pretty soon. cool.gif

Smith might have been more ready only becuase he might have hit the peak of his potential or closer to it then Garza. It will be a short career for him if this is true though.

I will give him a slight pass on yesterdays start, lots of nerves out there and it was crazy hot it sounded like.

I might give Smith one more start to give him an honest shot but then if it still goes the wrong way i would give Garza a call up regardless. I really thought between Baker, Boof and Smith they could find a guy to give them atleast a decent start every other start.

Garza should be up soon, I think the Twins are running out of options.

Should be fun. Like a couple weeks ago, if we win one, that keeps you guys fighting for the wild card, at best. Tigers do not need to treat it as any more important than a series agains KC or Cleveland. The only way we can get in any trouble at all would be if we get swept. Same as before, with our pitching, that shouldn't happen. Hope the Twins get the wild card, as that puts us agianst the West. You guys can have the Yankees first round. Good luck to you.

if we can get into the playoffs I would love a shot at the Yanks again. They have had our number in the playoffs but I think we are about due.

We have better all around pitching then they do and now we have some bats in our lineup that might make you sweat a little at times. No more of the punchless Twins. We can hit back now.

yes-- but if the White SOX win the W.c you still play the west. Only way you play the Yanks/Red Sox is if one of them wins the WC. I will remind you that Chicago Cubs in 1969 had a 8-10 game lead over the Mets in late Aug, with a winner % similar to what the Tigers have now, and won like 8 of their last 32games to finish way behind the Mets.

Not over till , till it's over.

Tyner getting doubled up in the 7th and Cuddies E in the bottom of the 7th killed the Twins. Rabe scores-- it's no longer Jesse Crain pitching the bottom half. Reyes or Rincon and your likely looking at different ending to the game.

Hope Lariano is OK. Clearly not the regular guy last night. 10 hits in four innings. Considering his age, don't you shut him down (DL) a while? Take no chances there. Our Verlander missed his last start. They're talking about a "tired shoulder," whatever that is. He has pitched more innings this year than any year in his life, and it's only early August. Those two are the future - can't take chances. Tigers have three more wins out of 112 games than the '84 Tigers had.

I agree with Liraino's arm.He did not have anything for them last night.It makes you wonder if they brought him back a little fast and just maybe the body needs a longer rest.Why ruin the future.He looked bad.

Anyone excited for tonight's game? Should be a great matchup. I just hope Santana is back to his old ways. He was bad last time against the Royals.

While we really have no chance of catching Detroit, taking the series from them in their park would do a lot for the confidence of the Twins. And every win helps us in the wild card.

Down to Earth

It would be great if the Twins can pull out a win tonight. Bonderman got roughed up a bit by the Tribe in his last outing, so maybe that dreadful inning he had last weekend against the Twins shook him a bit.

Can't but help look forward to the weekend though. Halladay is pitching today for the Jays, so the Twins will get through the series without having to face him. Detroit is at Chicago as well.

Looks like an exciting finish for the wild card hunt.

JUSTIN "MOONSHOT" MORNEAU is da man!! Boy did that 2 run SHOT shut those Detroilet fans at the game right up. How sweet, right after Inge went two run bomb on Cy Santana. It was a great series... 2 out of 3 in Detroilet is good.

Very good 3 game set to watch and we picked up one game on Detroit with it so close everyone of the next 50 games will be important. Always great to have a team in the hunt and gives us fans something to do. Those guys must be having so much fun sitting in the dugout knowing that they are not out of any game. Sure do look like they are having fun after that blast!!!

M&M Boys STRIKE!!!!

Mauer BB was huge also-- but Morneau's shot is the most I have been excited with GOrdo going absoultely nuts since AJ's shot agst OAkland in 2002. This team really show's some guts--- your best pitcher, pitching a a heck of game- gives up the lead on a 2-run shot and the home crowd goes nuts in the bot7. -- Most teams this year agst the tigers- roll over. But the Twins responded like champs. Great relief from Reyes-Rincon and Nathan. WOW!!! Too me-- it's the Twins biggest win of the year.

I hope Tiger fans don't "shut-up." It was a great series. Our guy made a bad pitch. It's location, location, location, with a 100 mph fastball. If in a good hitters wheelhouse (that one was) they go out at least as fast as they come in. Zumaya is a rookie. That is not the first, or even the second, big home run he has given up. He is still learning. Thought we had you when Inge hit his. Both teams have had many late inning rallies. Sure is fun. Good luck to you. I do hope you make the playoffs. Don't like Chicago. You're better than Boston. I do fear the Yankees.

If you look back through RJ's posts, you'll notice a very similar tone in all of them. It's always a pleasure to read his posts...they're always competitive, yet very good natured and knowledgeable. Thanks, RJ!

Great series!!!

I agree with you about RJ's posts- love to read them- sensible, down to earth, great fan to discus bb with.

100 mph fastballs don't leave the yard very often, nomatter where they are though. 75 mph change-ups however will leave the yard very often when left in the middle of the plate, like Santana did to Inge. My "in-laws" are Tiger fans, so I have a little more incentive for the Twins to do well against them.( some of them are not as sensible a fan as RJ) grin.gif The rest of the year should be interesting!!!!!!!!!

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      That the best sounding plan yet!! same to you and your party.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.
    • eyeguy 54
      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.
    • ANYFISH2
      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.
