      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 .

Torri

Recommended Posts

This guy has absolutely carried us lately

He has been hot as a pistol at the plate and it seems like his foot is better because he is now looking like what we have been acustomed to seeing in the outfield.

He has his swagger back too - he is stealing bases again. Hitting the ball to all fields and jerking quite a few homers in the mix.

All the people that wanted to rip this guy apart earlier can eat a little crow now. He is going to put up some pretty respectable offensive numbers after all. Even though he has been out quite a bit, there is a chance he'll hit 30 bombs and come fairly close to 100 rbis.

One thing for next year.

BRING HIM BACK!!!!

He really has turned things around for himself like alot of Twins have.

He was brutal early in the year but he is great right now. He still has a few typical Tori at bats where he goes up swinging for the fences every time. He still seems to hit into alot of double plays but he has more then made up for it.

I also want him back next year. Re sign him in the off season to a new 4 year deal.

Moreneau (MVP), Cuddy, and Mauer have taken the weight of the world off of Torris shoulders. Torri can start having fun playing ball again and it's showing.

They were talking about that during the telecast yesterday on how Torii didn't feel comfortable in the 4 spot and Cuddyer has help take that off of Hunter, who is much more relaxed hitting in the 6 spot.

I'd like to see him back, but only at the right price. I don't think he's a 12 million dollar guy, but if we can bring him back for around 7-8 I'd be happy with that.

Yep is is about a 7 MILLION a year guy. I really like the way he's been swinging the bat lately.

You go boy!! Oh wait, this subject was already posted about two weeks ago right... darn, I was going to crucify myself again for bashing that perfect baseball player... I mean why would I bash him when he was swinging at balls three feet out of the strike zone consistantly and when he would hit the ball it was a inning killing double play ball... why would anybody dare give him any greif?? I must have been off my rocker... shocked.gif

P.S. I think everybody wanted to eat crow, we all cheer for the Twins, it just gets frustrating when you have a guy that makes alot of money playing so badly... the posts were he was getting bashed were WELL DESERVED... I guarantee you that not ONE person here will argue that fact. I can appreciate you sticking up for your close personal friend Mr. Hunter, just be sure and realize that he deserved the criticism he was dealt.

I agree the critism was well warranted earlier. I am talking about the guys saying he never gets meaningful hits or helping the team much.

He is what he is and right now we are seeing the good of the streaky part. Best things is, he is doing it in a playoff race and at a time when we really need him to step up.

Works out great for us, and I just don't see any replacement for him on the very near horizon. Span may take over someday, but for next year, I think we need him here to play centerfield.

I think giving him 12 million for one year isn't the biggest issue in the world. The way some of you guys talk it sounds like he is signed to a deal that pays him 12 million a year for 5-6 years, its just not the case. On occasion you have to over pay guys for a year like that. When he signs a new deal he won't make 12 million every year, he is more of a 7-8 million guy at the most.

Even if we pay him 12 million for one year that pales in comparision to what we had to pay for the services of Kyle Lohse.

Through Monday with the same number of ABs, J. Jones has mostly better numbers than Hunter. Jones was lucky to get $5 million a year. Why is Hunter be more vaulable?

J Jones will swing at ANY low and in pitch with 2-strikes on him.

I will say this, the one interview I saw with him made him seem like a pretty decent guy. Too bad he has faltered both early and late this yr or he would have had even better numbers.

That is definitely a good look. I will say that Hunter is much better defensively. He is actually thought of as being one of the two best in the game right now. Otherwise, they are very close numbers-wise offensively.

One thing that I'll probably get ripped for saying is that Hunter is thought of as the leader of the Twins, even though IMO, it is now Sant, Mauer, Morneau, Cuddyer's team.

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      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?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      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.

      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!
