      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 .

Are the white sox done?

Recommended Posts

The sox still scare me and are still capable of going on a tear, just as easy as the twins are of going on a slide

I figured with the sox going into last nights game already knowing that the Tigers and the Twins BOTH lost that it would give them a little spark.

When I saw the 9-0 beat down by the M's I guess I was wrong.

Is it true? both Windy and the Sox have given up?

They are done. Stick a fork in them. The have had the chance to pick up a game or two here and there but they haven't been able to do it. They are going the wrong way in a hurry.

What makes you happier, the Twins making the playoffs or the White Sox sitting at home in october?

For me one wouldn't be complete without the other but I have to smile when I see the standings and the Sox are 5 1/2 games back. It turns around a bad day in a hurry.

Jermaine Dye left the game today. Hate to see a player get hurt. But it makes the odds for MVP better for Morneau..

CHICAGO -- Chicago White Sox right fielder Jermaine Dye left Saturday's game against the Seattle Mariners in the eighth inning after stumbling and falling down as he came out of the batter's box.

Dye's grounder to shortstop became a double play when Juan Uribe was tagged out at third trying to advance from second and then Dye, who couldn't run up the line, was out at first to retire the side in the seventh.

Ryan Sweeney took over for Dye in the top of the eighth.

Looks like they failed to show up again last night. The way things are progressing, there could be an outside shot the Twins get homefield through out. Only 1 game back of both the Tigers and Yankees. If we win out you never know what could happen standings wise.

We need to win out and the kitties lose 2. Pretty tall order but it can be done.

How sweet would a sweep of the Sux be?!?!?!

Pier,

If ever you needed a team like the Sox, now is the time. They cashed in the chips about a week and a half ago. Konerko is out with injury, they shut Buehrle down (though that could work in the Sox favor), and a bunch of nagging injuries have come out. You know if they were still in the hunt those players would be in everyday but they flew the white flag about 10 games ago. I would think a sweep could be possible but it looks like the Twinks are holding Yo-Han for the 1st game of the playoffs. This could backfire if you want the division title. Kitties get KC to finish up though they have been playing tough against all the division leaders this year. The Sox do have a thing for the Twinks and they might just muster up a little "pis* and vinegar" and take a game or two up in the baggie dome. Should be an interesting race to the finish line and then the real dance starts. GO BEARS! Windy

They flew the white flag 10 games ago???? Wow not much of a team if they did that. A real team would never give up, even if they were totally out of it. I blame that on the coach

Muerto Minnow,

You could blame the coach or nagging injuries or the fans or the weather but all that would do is look like excuses. I think the facts speak for themselves. They are something like 2-8 in the last ten games over the time I was reffering to while the Kitties and Twinks were 6-4 or 7-3. The division was there for the taking as was the wild card and for some reason, they didn't close the deal. I would have to say they gave up, why not blame the people most directly responsible, the ones throwing the ball and swinging the bat? Agreed?

Looks like a dead heat down the homestretch, though you are still a game behind, so to speak, with the tie breaker going to the Kitties. Should be a wild weekend. You are getting a team who is playing dead while the Kitties may get a Tiger in their tanks with KC. I would hope that the Sox hatred for the Twinks would boil over and they would show some sign of life, especially since the Twinks are holding out Yo-Han for game one of the playoffs. Windy

Muerto,

They did teach you how to read when you went to school, correct? Why don't you take a minute and re-read my previous post. If you can't do that, have somebody else read it to you. Then get back to me. Oh, by the way, welcome to the thread! YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD...YES!

Muerto,

Just an after thought. Why on God's creation would you blame the coach for a team giving up? When was the last time Ozzie picked up a glove or a bat on the White Sox? What was his on base percentage this year with the White Sox? Thought so! Blame the people who cash the million dollar paychecks and the ones whose fingers are inside the gloves and on the bats and balls! Windy

Yep, never did understand why it was the mgr that gets fired. Same applies to the workplace .....just try to get some underachievers with no motivation to do something they don't want to do when they know they won't lose their job.

The coach in in charge. The coach is in charge. The coach is in charge. He's the one responsable for...........everything. Motivation of the troops is the responsability of the coach. If they give up the fault lies in the coach. The buck stops at the coach.

Ozzie's a quitter except when he cashes his million dollar paycheck. grin.gif

Geno,

You must have seen one too many road crews out in the Land of Lincoln, six guys standing around leaning on shovels with a cup of coffee in their hand while the new guy (usually a college kid) shovels the ashphalt into the hole! Got to love our local govt. Layers upon layers of guys getting paid to do nothing. Windy

High school teams, yes. College teams, maybe. Pros, no way! Look at the NBA, do you really think Phil Jackson was responsible for the Bulls winning 6 championships. Was he that much better of a coach than Doug Collins, no way! He was just there when Michael, Pippen, Grant, Rodman, Paxson and all took off. Coaches in pro sports get way too much of the credit and take way too much of the blame. It's the players, it's the players, it's the players! Windy

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T

      I agree with rudrave, a boat will open up a lot more opportunities to fish off shore.  You could get a brand new 16 foot fishing boat with a 25 hp motor and a basic sonar unit with trailer for about $10 grand and that sort of rig would get you on a lot of small to medium-sized lakes in addition to rivers around here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed Hubbard County’s first case of Eurasian watermilfoil, an invasive aquatic plant, in Bad Axe Lake near Emmaville. DNR invasive species specialists confirmed Eurasian watermilfoil around the resort access to the lake. They reported it did not appear to be widespread into other areas of the lake. Eurasian watermilfoil can limit recreational activities on water bodies by forming mats on the water surface, and can alter aquatic ecosystems by displacing native plants. It is typically spread when plant fragments have not been properly cleaned from trailered boats, personal watercraft, docks, boat lifts, anchors or other water-related equipment. Treatment options include selective herbicides and mechanical removal, to minimize the plant’s impact while protecting native aquatic plant species. Treatment is unlikely to eradicate Eurasian watermilfoil from a lake. It may minimize impacts, but rarely prevents broader dispersion within a lake. This new confirmation is a reminder to boaters and anglers to follow Minnesota laws to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species: Clean aquatic plants and animals from watercraft. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keep drain plugs out while transporting watercraft. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Details about Eurasian watermilfoil and other aquatic invasive species are available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
