      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 .

Garza's first start

Recommended Posts

I hope Garza's effort tonight matches the hype. History says he won't make the fifth inning.

Even if he is doing well I doubt he'll go past 5.

My prediction is 5 innings, 2 runs, 4-5 strikeouts and then the bullpen takes over.

I don't think they want to throw the kid out for 7+ innings right away. 6 is the absolute most unless he is throwing a no hitter.

Top of the 2nd 5-0 TOR they sure do like his fastball. Didn't someone say here that any ML batter can hit a fastball. O wait that was me... Gee I hope something good happens here ... 7 hits so far I can't write anymore..

This is both good and bad.

Bad that we are losing.

Good that he is getting MLB experience.

Cant judge a pitcher his age on his first MLB start.

With all of those big series with Detroit and Chicago. smirk.gif

Pitched a lot like Scott Baker. Good stuff but can't live up in the zone. I can only imagine how nervous he was. Will see I'm sure he'll get at least 2 maybe 3 more starts. Can't get much worse... ooo.gif

Chances of Making the playoffs. I believe are about over with. We don't have a good rotation. Silva is off and on. Baker's probably going to get beat up today to. I love the Twins, but I'm afraid it's going to take a miracle to make the playoffs.

Captain B.R.K

I just read a stat today on trib.com and of the 60 + pitches he threw last night, 45-49 of them were fastballs ooo.gif When anybody at the plate is sitting on a fastball, they will pounce all over it.

Hopefully Anderson will be able to help him with his slider and curveball.

I'm not expecting big things from him this year. I had a hunch he wasn't going to be effective because they did say he had great control of his fastball, but all his other pitchs were pretty questionable. They definately needed some work more or less.

It's pretty clear that Gardy didn't learn anything from TK. Despite who's calling the shots, TK would have had Garza pitch some relief to get a taste, build some confidence and see if he had the junk it took to be a starter.

Reusse had a nice piece today on Ron Davis. Back in those days, it was pretty easy to get seats where you could see his stuff. He pitched for today's KC back them.

In Gardy defense, They don't need relief pitchers they need starters. You don't mess with the #1 bull pen giving somebody innings to practice. I think he was not ready to be called up, but was and now that he is he will have to learn from his outing. Kid's got stuff, just has to learn how to pitch. Last I look the manager is Gardy, TK is retired.

traded WHO for a pitcher???? I can't remember the last time the Twins traded for a pitcher at the deadline other than Rick Reed---glad he's long gone.

THE twins did it right by not making a move. They are young- keep them together-- and this year is a long way from over-- Silva - Radke- Santanna-- still can win alot of games, plus with days off-- they only need one start from a 4th guy.

      Yesterday the MN DNR announced a license requirement change effective NOW for this ice season. All Wheel House and other fishing structures which cannot be folded / collapsed must be licensed even if you remove the house when you get off the ice.

      Harvest climbs 16 percent from 2016 Minnesota firearms hunters registered 161,057 deer through the third weekend of deer season, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  Preliminary results through the third weekend show that the number of deer registered was up 16 percent from 2016. Of the deer harvested, 53 percent were bucks, compared to 63 percent during the same period in 2016. In Zone 1, in northeastern Minnesota, total firearms harvest was up 36 percent. In Zone 2, which covers the majority of the state and runs from Canada to Iowa, harvest was up 10 percent and Zone 3, in southeastern Minnesota, was down 5 percent. “The conditions were generally good for hunters participating in the last week of the Zone 1 season and for the start of the 3B season in the southeast,” said Erik Thorson, acting big game program leader, “which provided a boost to the statewide firearms harvest.” Based upon the number of antlerless permits available and the number of permit areas that allow multiple deer to be taken, the DNR is projecting the 2017 total deer harvest to be around 200,000. The 2016 total harvest was 173,213 and to date firearms and archery hunters have harvested about 180,000 deer this year. In much of Minnesota, the firearms deer season ended Nov. 12, and the northern rifle zone season ended Nov. 19. The late southeast firearms deer season is open through Sunday, Nov. 26. The muzzleloader season begins Saturday, Nov. 25, and continues through Sunday, Dec. 10. More information on deer management can be found at mndnr.gov/deer. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

The purpose of the committee is to promote and coordinate implementation of the 25-Year Parks and Trails Legacy Plan. Funding recommendations for individual projects is not a part of this committee’s work. The plan can be found at on the parks and trails legacy plan page. 2018 will mark the 10th anniversary of the passage of the Legacy Amendment by Minnesota voters. The committee is planning a series of regional events during the year to celebrate Legacy accomplishments and engage Minnesotans on the question, “Why Parks and Trails Legacy Matters.”  Information about the events will be available in January on Facebook (/PTLegacyMN) and on the committee website (www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac). The deadline for applications is Saturday, Dec. 16. The committee is made up of 17 members, including, to the practical extent possible, diverse geographical and demographic representation. The committee has a mixture of park and trail professionals and Minnesota residents. Committee members should have expertise in two or more of the four strategic pillars of the plan: Connect people and the outdoors. Acquire land and create opportunities. Take care of what we have. Coordinate among partners. Terms are two years with the option of being reappointed for a maximum of three terms. Meetings are scheduled every two months around the state, with an option to attend remotely. Interested individuals may complete the application form online at www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac/member-application or print it out and return it to Paul Purman, Department of Natural Resources, Box 39, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155.
