      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 .

Morneau for MVP

Recommended Posts

8-Ball

Yeah- and on ESPN tonight they had a graphic of the so-called best candidates for MVP-and no, Morneau was not on the screen It was (you guessed it, Jeter) and Papi. I can see Papi, but that will fade probably as the Sox are sinking out of the playoff pic. But I don't get how they can not even mention Morneau. Jeter is overrated, IMO. No way he has carried the Yanks like Morneau has us this year. I don't care if he is in the big apple or not. No comparison.

I hear your passion for Justin for MVP. But I have to say, Cuddy may be the twins MVP. Only becuz nobody expected a season like this from him. Santana is the MVP including pitchers.

Sorry guys, Jeter has it in the bag. He is in the biggest market and on the East coast. Morneau will split votes with Santana and that leaves Jeter to win it. The only way he can loose it now is if Chicago wins the devision, then Dye has a great shot at it, or if Santana does not give up another run for the rest of the year. friendly

I disagree, I can see Jeter not winning as all the sportwritters that vote on this don't live in NY and tend to bias RBI guys.

If Jeter was a shortstop for the Twins he wouldnt be mentioned either.

Its gonna be the east coast bias like always.

If Jeter wins it over Dye or Morneau I will be pretty upset. Jeter just has a big market and a big name behind him and that is usually all it takes.

Morneau should be MVP, when he started hitting the Twins started winning.

I'd be very surprised if anyone other than Jeter wins it. He probably gets good pitches because A-Rod bats behind him, but that's never hindered voters in the past. Jeter may win the batting title, and he may put up 100+ RBI this year too (91 right now). East coast bias and he's been a consistent player for a decade now.

I still think Morneau or Dye should win it, just saying I'd be surprised if Jeter doesn't.

He's a solid MVP candidate and there is no question who has carried our team offensively this season. It has been #1 Justin Morneau, and #2 Michael Cuddyer. These guys are # 1 and 2 in two-out RBI's. A stat that wasn't mentioned in that article that should have been. Those are all clutch hits.

Joe Mauer may garner some votes too, so will Santana.

Honestly, I don't think you want Morneau to win the MVP. Only for the fact that he will cost a ton if he does. Either way, the Twins have to lock this guy up forever. He is a Harmon Killebrew type player for this team. A superstar and stud hitter that will anchor our lineup until he retires.

My opinion....if Jeter wins the batting title, he'll get the MVP. It's the name, it's the team, it's the city. If Jeter doesn't win the batting title, then I believe the MVP is up in the air.

If the Twins for whatever reason don't make the playoffs, Justin will not win the MVP. Only way I see Justin winning the MVP is if the Twins make the playoffs and Jeter does not win the batting title. I think Justin should win it no matter what happens though.

Morneau strengthed his case last night against Ortiz, he looked like the better hitter.

5 hits on the night, an RBI, 2 runs scored and two doubles. Raised his average to .326. This guy is solid and no question an MVP.

He doesn't have the HR totals, but the RBI's he is gonna catch Ortiz and it might happen this series. Also, his average puts him 5th and he could very easily be third by the end of the week.

Peter Gammons is coming back tonight and will be reporting from Fenway. I'll be interested to hear what he has to say about Morneau vs. Ortiz for the MVP. He is as big a Boston backer as there is, but it is hard to ignore what Justin has done this year. Morneau also plays the field.

Ortiz's line last night - 0-5 with 3 K's. We have handled him great all year long.

      I haven't ice fished this lake in about 4 years. It had a pretty large scale winter kill a few years back. I am sure it has since rebounded. Lakes like this typically come back pretty quickly following winter kill, especially with the mild winters we have had as of late. Mayhew used to be loaded with smaller perch, and had decent crappie action at times. I too would be curious to know how Mayhew is doing. Wish I could be more help to you.

      Be very cautious on lakes even further north of the Ogilvie area lakes. As of 3 days ago, there was still significant open water on Ripple, Hickory, Big Pine, Cedar, Bay, Farm Island, and numerous other lakes in the Mille Lacs, and Aitken area. Be very cautious, take your time, and test the ice every 10 yards or so, particularly if you get anywhere near anything that would be considered mid lake. Area resorts and bait shops are very reluctant to give advice that would be considered a green light to access even the small lakes. Be safe....

      East access..... only 3.5" - 4"  200 yards out.  .... don't know north acces as I saw enough to  stay off.

      Anyone on here been out on White Bear yet? I've seen a few people out off the Ramsey Beach area where the truck went through the other day but have not had a chance to venture out myself. Normally I hit the Belaire area early ice. Thanks!
    • walleyewalby
      wealthwood had1.5 last weekend, i saw no one out but 1 person on the whole west side last wsat afternoon. thi week the resorts on the north end and east are reporting decent ice. check with the resorts before you go out. id stay away from public accesses now and follow a staked road.
    • MrSchrute
      Have you fished out there before? Is it worth putting some time in on the ice? Thanks-
    • walleyewalby
