      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 .

Silva - Not on my playoff roster!

Recommended Posts

Willy

I wouldn't put this guy on the roster. He gives the team no value. In the bullpen we have long guys that are better than him. They said they are going to bring 11 guys for the pitching staff.

Here are my 11:

1. Santana

2. Boofy

3. Radke (if he can't - Garza)

BP

Garza

Guerrier

Crain

Rincon

Reyes

Nathan

Baker

Perkins

Those guys will get the job done. In '87 we only had 2 good starters and our bullpen is better this year.

I just don't want to see Silva in there at all facing the Yankees. I would rather put my trust in a couple rookies than him with the season he is having. He just doesn't have it together.

I agree!! Did anybody see when they pulled head case, err I mean Silva out and Gardy was patting him on the chest consoling him? That guy has to be as big a head case as Lohse!! I spoke up about Silva before and then he wins three and I get hammered on... well, I'm back to saying he's an inconsistant tool!

Santana

Bonser, if Radke isn't ready

Garza

OK I will jump on the band wagon too. I have stuck it out all year thinking he would trun it around, but now that it is crunch time I really dont want him on the playoff roster. I would rather have a bullpin guy start than him. Or just go with 3 (4) if Radke can go. If he cant at least I get to go to his last start. Should be great night at the dome tonight.

He is not starter material. I don't think he was a starter prior to being a Twin???? Middle relief at best, he has had a few good outings, but when he is off, man is he off. 10-15 record isn't gonna cut it. Even I could hit that belt high fastball with no movement.

I agree with Buzz, he is a headcase, but how could you not be, having stuff you know is good, but just seem to find in regularly. I think Radke pitches tonight, man I hope that goes well....If not we have a weak starting lineup with barely any playoff experience. I mean if Garza and Bonser start, the have more starts in the minors than in the majors I believe, I will remain optomistic since we have the best record in baseball since like June first, but I just don't like the lack of experience....

You know, I have a little different perspective on the lack of experience issue. Guys like Boof, Garza, Guerrier, Neshek, Perkins, etc...I think these guys may just be too young and confident to really understand the magnitude of the playoffs.

I think back to a young Josh Beckett dominating the Yankees in the World Series a few years ago. He didn't have the most experience, but had that confident almost cocky sense about him and he wasn't phased by anything. I think some of our young guns have that same mentality.

They all have a lot to prove and what a better stage to do it on than in the playoffs. Being led by vets like Radke and Santana isn't going to hurt either, I'm sure they've learned a lot by just watching and talking with those two throughout the season.

There also isn't a book written about them yet. Now, other teams scouts will be all over the place the next few games and probably have been for some time. Either way, I like our chances better without Silva in there.

P.S. I'm gonna be at the game tonight to watch maybe Radke's last start as a Twin or at least in the dome. Should be a good one to be at.

I hope that Silva enjoys where he'll be pitching next year.

Rookie Les Straker started three playoff games in 87.

I think the Twins matchup good against Wang and The Moose. There's no room for error pitching to their lineup. If Santana gives up a couple early, it'll be tough to come back. Twins starters need to get through seven to shorten the bullpen and get to Nathan asap. With only one lefty (unless Perkins is on the roster), you could see everyone get a chance.

I'll take the under in the Wang vs Santana playoff matchup.

At least Silva admitted he's done nothing to help the team this year....and it sounds like he won't be starting in the Yankee series......

Sounds like Silva doesn't even have confidence in himself.

Montana has a point there... I recall that Angels rookie who domintated the world series a few years back....what's his name? Fransisco something, Rodriguez something, it's on the tip of my tounge...

I hope that is the case because it's my bet we'll being seeing our rookies in intense situations real soon..

Like I said before, I would rather see "Dazzle" come down from the broadcaster's booth and pitch than watch Silva throw away a game. I think the outfielders would have a better chance if they stood on top of the outfield walls when he pitches. Maybe every once in a while they would be able to snag one of those six shots he gives up a game.

Please Gardy- do not put him on the playoff roster. Way too inconsistent, and does not have both his oars in the water, if ya know what I mean..

Definitely gotta be out of the rotation. A couple of good games here and there, but as everyone else has said, no consistency (at least not to the good). Leave him on the bench or don't dress him at all. He pretty well dug his own grave this year by leaving his pitches up in the strikezone. I'd be surprised if the Twins brought him back next year.

I say put him in...He just got the Buzzsaw reverse jinx. Buzz rips him and he goes off on a tear. Just like Radke, Hunter, Silva the first time. grin.gif

OK...more realistically, they got to be wondering if they even want to give him a shot next year much less the playoffs.

PS...Come on Mitty, here is your chance for us all to agree with you. wink.gif

Not if he wins but I think he will be middle releiver at best or even a high paid bench warmer.

      Thanks much Huntnfish and ZachD!!!  Had the wife pick me up some CCI 209 Magnum primers and seems to have fixed the issue.  Went out the other night and put 7 rounds through the ole CVA and didn't have a single hangfire.  I'm ready for the weekend.

      Anglers and others interested in Department of Natural Resources strategies for managing Grand Marias area lakes and streams are invited to review and comment on management plans scheduled for review this fall. This annual process includes several waters located within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW). Comments on lakes within the BWCAW will be accepted until Dec. 20. The comment period for lakes and streams outside the BWCAW, will extend through Feb. 15. A management plan identifies specific management activities planned for a lake or stream over the next five to 20 years, including any proposed stocking or special regulations. “Management plans are our best single sources of information on past, present and desired future conditions in our lakes and streams,” said Steve Persons, Grand Marais area fisheries supervisor. “Comments and suggestions from those most interested in these waters are crucial when it comes to making plans and determining management success. For anglers this is the best opportunity to influence how these lakes and streams are managed.” In the Grand Marais area, plans for the following lakes and streams will reviewed this winter. Lake plans under review: The status and preservation of native lake trout populations will be the primary concern in plans being revised for Blue Snow and Gabimichigami Lakes. Both are located inside the BWCAW. Stream trout stocking and management strategies will be reviewed in Thompson, Thrush, Turnip, Olson, Kraut, Little Portage, Olga, Mavis (BWCAW), Missing Link (BWCAW), Meditation (BWCAW), Talus, Trout, Pine (near Two Island Lake), Unnamed (near Tom Lake), Chester, Extortion, and North Shady Lakes. Options to consider include changes in species, reductions in stocking frequency, and changes in the number or size of fish stocked. In Mine, Peanut, Weasel (Sled), Tomato, Trip, and Rog (BWCAW) Lakes, fisheries managers are considering eliminating trout stocking, due to the high cost of stocking remote lakes by air, poor survival of stocked fish, or use that appears to have been too low to justify the cost of continued stocking.  Angler feedback on fisheries in these lakes is critically needed for these important decisions. Plans for Devilfish, Gust, Hand, and Tom Lakes will be reviewed with attention to the status and needs of walleye fisheries in those lakes. Moore Lake will be reviewed to determine whether it offers any potential for panfish management. Plans for several lightly-used BWCAW lakes in the area, including Caribou (by Clearwater), Clove, Kiskadinna, Long, Mora, Morgan, Skipper, and Tepee Lakes will be reviewed. Those plans will be revised primarily to incorporate any new survey data that may have been obtained, and to establish survey schedules for the next few years. Streams plans under review: Plans for Beaverdam Creek and the Swamp River will be reviewed.  Both are marginal trout streams, and may be considered for removal from the State’s list of designated trout streams. Plans for the Cascade River, Elbow Creek, and the Onion River will also be reviewed. All three support thriving brook trout populations, with the Cascade and Onion Rivers also supporting steelhead and salmon in their lower reaches. Plans will focus on habitat and water quality, hydrology and watershed issues. The DNR is considering removing the portion of Elbow Creek above Elbow Lake from the State’s list of designated trout streams, since no trout have been found in that part of the stream in recent surveys. Current plans for lakes and streams in the area as well as recent fish population assessment information are available for review at the DNR’s Grand Marais area fisheries office, at 1356 E. Highway 61, Grand Marais, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. For more information, call or email Steve Persons at 218-387-6022 or steve.persons@state.mn.us. Public comments on management of BWCAW waters are due by Dec. 20. The comment period for lakes and streams outside the BWCAW will extend through Feb. 15. Comments, suggestions and other feedback on the management of these, and all other streams and lakes in the area are welcomed at any time and will be considered when those plans are next due for review. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The first set of replacements I bought from a dealership but they are spendy. I bought some Ancos at Fleet Farm like I have in the past for all my vehicles, but there is no adapter that fits the end of the  blade arm. What are others using?

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the city of Willow River will host a public open house on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 to discuss options for the Willow River dam which was severely damaged during a July 2016 rain storm. The open house will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Willow River School located at 8142 Pine Street, Willow River, Minn. Participants can visit displays during the first hour of the open house to learn more about three options currently being considered.  At 7:30 p.m. DNR staff will make a presentation about the features, benefits and cost of each option and answer questions about next steps. The meeting purpose is to receive public input about the options and to answer questions about the state’s process. The dam was built in 1940 as a cooperative venture between the Works Progress Administration and the then Department of Conservation. Heavy rains from a July 2016 thunderstorm overwhelmed the capacity of the dam and caused a significant breach of the north embankment. Options include replacement of the dam to meet current safety standards, removal of the dam, or restoration of the river channel with a series of rock weirs, or rock rapids, to retain water levels but to allow passage of small craft as well as the movement of fish. “We have a rare opportunity to reimagine how this stretch of river might function and look like in the future,” said project manager Jason Boyle. “We look forward to hearing from area residents and moving the project forward.” Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I am noodling this same concept over.  I am thinking either a dedicated (portable) battery, since I may be pulling on shore to the ice with the 4-wheeler or a hand, boat-type winch, not always hooked up to the truck.
