      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 .

Virgin's Obsession with Greatest Pitcher to not win the Cy Young Award!

Recommended Posts

Windy City Walleye Hunter

Virgin,

What is your obsession with this???

Would every body please ring in with their vote to shut this guy up, PLEASE???

My vote would be Billy Chapel, I think if he didn't give up that homer to Roy Hobbs in the ninth inning of the Series he would have easily won the CY!!!

I'm gonna place my entry and maybe you two can get past this . 1st off Virg , this question is subjective base on the person answering who he thinks is the greatest pitcher . Windy the Twins hater thinks its Billy Chapel and I'm going to say its Babe Ruth . Of course it could be Satchel Page too . See what I mean ? Virg , just give your take on who you think it might be and you and Windy can move onto a different topic . By the way , did you know that Cy , of Cy Young fame , was a nickname that was short for Cyclone ? His real name was Fenton or Denton , something like that .

How 'bout Cy Young himself? He never actually won the award...

Though I s'pose having an award named after you is the award in and of itself...

I might have to change my vote, I am thinking that Rick "Wildthing" Vaughn should get some consideration. If he wasn't bothered so much by his nephew Jake, his brother Alan and his boss, Gordon Geko, I think he could have won more than the two World Series that the Indians did. Sorry that it was against my Pale Hose but he deserves some consideration.

Thoughts???

Windy,

With your permission, I would like to nominate Kyle Lohse, Twin's reject, current Cincy Red. Did I mention he shutout the Cubs today? grin.gif

Just gettin' my cheap shots in before that $300 million dollar batting order wakes up Geno.

I always liked Rick Reushell. He looked like Fog Horn Leghorn in a Cubs uniform. When I lived in iowa, I knew a girl who Rick used to babysit.

I agree with you Rip, he could have cut his hand when he was messing around with that samuri sword with Whitney Houston also! And Spinner, I will second that vote as well. Lohse looked awful good laying the Cubbies down today. How many trips do you think he will make in the NL before they are onto his pitches like the AL hitters were?

That's alright guys, lay it on me. After all, I could be called worse than a "Cubbie lover".....Nappy-headed comes to mind.

The problem is I don't have much ammo to fight back with so like when we were young, I'll just ignore you and you'll get tired of picking on a defenseless guy and just go away.

(Don't go away mad, just go away!)

Somehow or another I got the impression this question was orginally about the best pitcher not to win a WS. Anyway, on another thread, I nominated Ferguson Jenkins-one (of a handful of) great Cub pitcher who also lost alot of 1-0 games-and one of the best "command" pitchers of my time for sure.

PS Sorry I don't remember Major League, or The Natural, or that other movie about baseball.

"And Spinner, I will second that vote as well. Lohse looked awful good laying the Cubbies down today. How many trips do you think he will make in the NL before they are onto his pitches like the AL hitters were?"

To some degree they have already. Lohse has good stuff, but was and is a head case. He gets hit hard every third start, and very effective every third start. NL is his only chance. He can survive over there for years IMO, but only with a very attentive pitching coach. High maintenance he is for sure, as predicted by most here. He is lucky steady decent pitching is hard to find.

      F.H., Fish deep and slow with lindys or jigs with minnows. Sometimes smaller minnows will work best at other times large suckers or shiners will get more hits. Cliff

      I'll venture a guess and say 1st weekend of December we'll have a good 4" to walk on.  Then it will continue to freeze to at least 12" before it gets snowed on

      I have the above motor that I use for duck hunting. When the temperature gets into the 30s (like this coming weekend), it can sometimes get stuck in either forward or reverse if it kills at low idle. In the 2nd picture, the throttle is open slightly. The curve part is attached to the shifter. It is in forward. If the motor dies and I close the throttle, the shifter can't be put into neutral (it needs to move up) because the it is blocked by the part above it. I need to take the top off and manually move the throttle closed (to the left) like the 1st picture. I think there is some grease that lubricates the throttle as it rotates under the flywheel. When cold, the grease is thick and sticks. Is there any lubricant I can spray up in the area that the throttle rotates? I'm hesitant to do so because of the electrical components in the area.

      Coming up this weekend with a friend of mine, even though the weather looks terrible. Any advice for how to catch them when mother nature brings the hammer down?  Highs in the mid 30's, lows in the low 20's.   On Friday I had a muskie in the upper 40s hit a 19 1/2" walleye.  As usual she let go at boatside, but it was fun while it lasted.
