      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 .

Gardy's lineup 9/13

Recommended Posts

blue_healer_guy

Don't want to start anything here, he's a good manager and a nice win tonite at cleveland. Buuuuttt, Yesterday he had Mauer and whoever not playing in left. Raabe will not play in the playoffs if they make it, so why play him? That's 2 spots out of 9 he basically gave up outs for. Tyner dh'd, play him in left or Lew and give Nevin or White a shot at DH. His record and such with giving players a chance to play is great, but not with 17 games left and the Al's leading hitter not playing. For you guys that are regulars here know how I feel about giving Joe day's off.

I feel the same but I think it is Gardys way of giving players a rest knowing if the game where to get out of hand he could always call them off the bench.They will only get monday off before the playoffs so get them the rest when they can.

I know what you're saying, but what's wrong with giving guys a day off every once in a while. Especially when they might be needed for the playoffs.

Also, Gardy has worked this way for as long as he has been manager. I have been very frustrated at times too, because almost no matter what, Gardy will put the B lineup in for day games.

Lets not harp on a manager that pulled a bunch of AAA players together mixed them with a couple of under achieving players from last year and turned them into a playoff contender.

If you saw this lineup back in April and were told that this is the lineup we were going to be using going through september we all would have thought we would be 15-20 games out by now. But some how Gardy has us 1 game out from the division lead and a 2 game wild card lead.

Can we all say MANAGER OF THE YEAR!!!

Agreed! If the Twins win the division, I don't see how anyone else in the AL can get it. To take this team from where they were to where they are is special and a great managing job any way you slice it.

No way Ozzie gets manager of the year. They are defending champs that went out and beefed up their lineup in the offseason. If anything they have been underachieving this year. Also how can a nut job like Ozzie get the award. Two many crazy rants from him this year about telling his pitchers to hit batters. Thats not good managemnet stuff to be doing. One day Ozzie will run himself right out of a job with is attitude and temper. You can't do some of the stuff he does without alienating some of your players. It works while you are winning but if they have a down year and he pulls that garbage he will lose the team.

Ozzie has zero chance of winning it... zero.

Ozzie greatest call of the year as a manger:

Delmon Young (AAA guy that threw the bat at the ump, got suspsended forever) got called up to the big leagues.

His first MLB at bat was against the sox, Ozzie officially welcomes him to the big leagues and has him intentionally hit by the pitcher.

Youngs next at bat was a homer and goes on to hit .727 vs the white sox for that series.

Smooth move ozzie! good to see that bean ball baseball is paying off for you. Im all for respect and playing it 'old school' that ozzie praises so much about, but it can come back to bite too.

Especially considering the key injuries we have gone through... I mean Shannon Stewart all year basically, Torri Hunter for a while, Liriano for what will end up being about two months, Radke and there are probably more, but these are important players..... I'm sure they'll give the award to Torre cuz his payroll is always so low and then follow it up with jeter getting the MVP because his batting average is 15 points higher than Morneau's and he's knocked in 50 fewer runs and has 30 fewer HR's...

I'd have to agree with those that feel it's a good idea to rest the players from time to time. Most important thing about sitting players like this out, is the timing. What game to do it and against which team. I don't think you'd want to sit players out when we're playing the 'Sox or Yanks.

As for manager of the year....I think whoever wins the central will get it, WITH THE EXCEPTION of Ozzie. No way in heck should he be a candidate. IMO, it comes down to Gardy and Leland. Leland I think would be a good candidate, taking a last place team to first, if that's how it ends up after the regular season is over. For the Twins though....small payroll, a bunch of underachivers, nobody gave them a chance all year long (and some sports analysts still aren't giving them a chance), key injuries for extended periods of time...you name it we've been though it.

Ya have to rest guys from time to time. How many of us would want to work everyday without a break? Granted they make a bunch of $$$ but 162 games wears a body out and Gardy needs em good to go for October.

When the rubber hits the road who cares about the batting title? It's more important for the team to win the division than it is for 1 player to win a title. That type of thinking is why the Twins are winners.

I understand the day off thing guys, but Rabbe in left. As stated, he is a great manager. He had 3 other options. I guess I felt bad for Garza, who pitched his tail off. Every move he makes can be 2nd guessed from now on, thats the fun part. I think in football they call it "arm chair QB" cool.gif

      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?
    • leech~~
      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!
    • CLPDB
      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?
    • timjones
      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.
    • PRO-V
      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.

      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.
