      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 .

What do YOU think of AJ Pierzynski?

Saw AJ's acting job pretending like he got hit by that ball to win the game. I think it was a smart move by AJ but the Umpire needs to be all over that with the game on the line. Personally, I dont like AJ and i think he is way to cocky. He's one of those guys you love when he's on your team, but you hate him when he's sitting on the other bench. All in all, he gives me one more reason to dislike the White Sox!

"He's an a$$, but does it really matter?"

As long as his teamates can tolerate him, no it doesn't matter. AJ could start on over half the MLB teams. I'm not a fan of the Sox at all, but most of their players seem like good guys to me. (I'd be surprised if he is popular on the team). Windy refers to AJ as Dennis the Menace. That seems appropriate.

He's a pro that gets paid dollars to win games anway he can. It's sports entertainment, I met him a couple of times and he is probably one of the most polite and humble persons you will ever meet.

Polite I can believe. Humble? I have a harder time with that one.

That said, if the rest of the locker room can take him, I would welcome him on my team anyday. Hardnosed and will do whatever it takes to win, even if he comes across as a sniveling, little brat.

Anyone else think he should get a chin implant?

I liked him as a Twin and like him as a player. I think he plays the game the way it was meant to be played. All out all the time. I agree he is one of those guys you love if he is on your team and hate him if he is on someones else's. But I think he gets some respect for his playing. I think he a better then average catcher.

From what I remember, he wasnt well liked in the locker room for the twins! I to have met him, my wife asked him for an autograph, he did so with a smile. I have known many other sports players that played here in mn that wouldnt even look at you, not to mention to stop and talk to you, and give an autograph.

Of course you guys know that I hated him as a Twink, same goes for Dennis Rodman as a Piston....Love them as a Pale Hoser and Wooly Bully! But I don't care if Bonds came to Chi-Town and hit 500 more taters, I would still hate his guts! Tool of a person, and chemically induced ball player.

Not even close, AJ was pretty much run out of San Fran because many teamates and the entire Giants pitching staff couldn't stand him.

AJ is a good catcher but he is no Mauer.

AJ is half as good as he thinks he is.

AJ was the trade bait in the MLB's version of the Hershel Walker deal!!! The Twin's realized AJ's shortcomings, they had a stud in the minors waiting to replace him and they pulled off the greatest heist in baseball history!

Go Twins... Where is the light happy music (for you KQ fans) as the Twins are still in first place!

I thought for sure when he came up to bat in the 9th with 2 on and 2 out he would take nathan deep to win the game. Luckily he he grounded out to first and went 0-4 on the day!

Yea, AJ pretty much blows. And as my wife said to me once, nobody really likes you, even your friends don't really like you that much.

At the TIME I thought drafting a catcher #1 in the draft and passing on stud pitcher Mark Prior was stupid, considering we had an All Star catcher on team (remember that? Posada caught the first 3 or 4 innings, and AJ caught until the 12th when game got called) Anyways, I now retract my original thoughts on the situation. Prior has spent more time on the DL than he has on the mound, Mauer is the best all around catcher of all-time (yes, all-time) and that trade that sent AJ to Frisco really was a steal. I have heard AJ is the most hated player in the Majors, there has to be some truth behind it, but I don't know him personally.

........Mauer is the best all around catcher of all-time (yes, all-time).........

Zamboni

I am confident he will be someday. But I watched another catcher play some pretty good ball. 17 seasons, 389HRs, 2 League MVPs, 10 Gold Gloves. 2 World Series rings, 12 All-Star games. Also had a 45 HR 148 RBI season and had a great arm. Third highest HOF selection percentage ever as well at 96%, so I’m not the only one that thought he was pretty good. I’m betting Geno saw him play once or twice.

Mauer is great, but it will take a few years to be considered to have had a superior CAREER.

Zamboni must be too young to have seen Bench (or Fisk or Jody Davis for that matter or even Tony Pena or Manny Sanguillen or.....Randy Hundley or even Todd Hundley). Potential is there for Mauer but fate is fickle too.

Catcher is such a tough position on the body. Bench was smart enough to know when it was time to play another position part time. Guess I need to research. I don't really know who played catcher for the longest time (at a high level). I think it was probably Carlton Fisk at 20+ seasons. Pudge has played a long time too, and has a career BA over .300.

      Sorry to hear. Being the guide-dad you want everyone to have fun. No fish on worms? Had to be the Eclipse!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Trip didn't go as planned. I had been asking some questions on here to get some info/ideas for the trip. Greatly appreciated all the stuff you guys shared with me. Unfortunately most of it wasn't in the plans  Camped at fall lake, as this was the first time my wife tagged along in a few years, and I thought his would be the most family friendly. After getting setup on Sunday, I launched the boat and goofed around for a bit, but didn't catch anything. My daughter was using worms, and she didn't even get a nibble. Is there not much for bass in fall?   Monday we had to spend some unexpected time in town, making certain purchases. Made it to snowbank late. Trolled for lakers, but only marked ciscoes. Once we started fishing for bass, we caught a few, but then the rain fell. Had it just been me and the 2 older kids, we could have fished through it. But with my wife and the youngest, it wasn't going to happen!   Pretty much the same thing happened on Tuesday. Went to burntside, but the lake was too windy. Went back to town, let the kids play at the park, then had lunch at the boathouse (I highly recommend the motorboat burger). Then we decided to keep it close and simple, and went to miner's pit. Weather got the best of us again. At least this time, my wife caught a few fish. No trout though.   Sometimes there's more to camping trips than good fishing though. We still had lots of fun, and I'm already making some notes for my next Ely trip, which I don't even know when will happen.

      Tommy, can tell by your posts and photos that your dogs are very special to you and Bonnie.  I shed a tear or two while reading this.  I got a kick out of you telling me here after I saw you driving through Cloquet a couple years ago.  You saw my dog riding co-pilot and you mentioned that you also had a dog in the passenger seat (can't remember which one) and Bonnie in the back seat riding with the other dogs.  Good Stuff! Take care, Bill

      I pop in here a few times lately for some humor for myself, it is hard to do. No, very hard to do...but this sight makes me smile sometimes so here ya go...FYI.   Moe Rock passed August 14th  ~  4 days before what would have been his 11th birthday.
      He was our rock in many ways and was one of the smartest retrievers we have ever had in our family in 30 some years.
      If you knew Moe Rock you can understand, remember. He was so strong an fought the cancer just over FOUR MONTHS....
      Pills n tests an more pills an more tests...until well CANCER SUCKS.
      In the end the cancer wins no matter how hard he fought or how hard his TEAM fought with him and for him. Bonnie an I, the special vets an techs at Osceola Animal hospital and the top doc's, students and assistants and at the U of M vet center tried very hard and long to help him in his battle. He never changed, stood tall an strong, bright eyes an devilish smile.
      Truth is we only stayed a couple steps ahead of the cancer that took him that day at 5 PM.
      He was strong right up until he passed with Bonnie an myself holding his paws an making his passing go easy. Bother Polar Bear Boy looking on also.
      Don't make any of this easy saying this, but he was not doing good at 5 am Sunday morning as that cancer stuff just jumped him good this weekend an well,  he lost.
      We never gave in, nor did he. This weekend at the cabin he tried to enjoy himself, DID enjoy it all.  He swam, couple dock jumps, we fished morning runs an sunset, did boat rides, worked on some shore n boat small projects an ate pretty dang well. He was fine until bedtime when we knew an HE knew something was happening.
      Not good. CANCER SUCKS!
      We had a great time, Moe only showing to Bonnie an myself an his Brother Polar Bear Boy he was not feeling to good in the evenings the last week. Very sad. Never forget Moe Rock or his up north name of NoMoeToe given to him by long time guest in my boat from Capser Wyoming the late Mary Cob and his Chisago City area name the Fire Chief gave him of ThreeToeMoe. He was not only special to me but to a host of people in this area an on or around Lake Vermilion for his whole life.
      Good boy, darn good boy. One regret is not everyone that knows of Moe or knows him only online did not get to meet him in person.
      You would have enjoyed him in many ways as we all did.
      Loveable, big nut, sweet, smart, goofy, odd and a total tick that like to start fights with this brothers an then leave them to settle it while he went an ate their food or got best seat on casting deck my big black boat.
      Yup, Moe Rock was a Tick.   Any way....very sad are we, but he fought like tuff darts, a good long fight.
      Never whined a bit, did as was asked an stayed pretty much himself the whole time until that Sunday morning really.
      Not once showing anyone not in family he was sick, real sick. Still loved his truck rides, belly rubs, swimming his pool, wratling with me n Bear, watching TV, Playing on Kendel or computer with Bonnie an just plain being Moe to his brother Bear Boy...big smiles. Fishing, how he love3d fishen...mostly topwater of any kind, but he would go with me anytime, anytime....true fish hound was he, our sweet Moezy.
      I did not tell anyone about Moe rock but Mom Joanne as figured he might kick cancer to the curb an well..........
      Never gave up hope but most times cancer wins in retriever hounds, even our sweet Moe Rock.
      PEACE!
      Very Sad. Now running with his fellow Mallard Island Marauders that crossed over before him, Barney Toonder, Homer J., Bailey, Beckey, Buddy.....plus Jack n Ev the Kats.
      Some good party.....good food, big smiles and all that go with them....all very special. Lov ya Moe......I miss you my boy....rest easy until we meet again.   Keep on rocken!   Tommy
