      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 .

Is Kubel any better? Isn't that the real question here

Kubel is the worst position player on the twins roster. He looks clueless in the outfield. Runs to first base like bengie molina with a broken ankle. I'll take Lew Ford anyday over Kubel.

Yeah Kubels impressed me once- with that HR over the baggy last year. He squints and swings the bat like he's blind

All three are overrated...we must have the weakest left field in baseball...(off the top of my head), White included in that group.

my least liked player on the twins roster is anyone that stands at the plate with 2 strikes with guys on base and watches the meatball come across the plate for strike 3 SWING THE BAT OR STAY ON THE BENCH.

Kubel is the only player Ive seen strike out multiple times on 3 straight check swings.

I heard that Lew plays D&D online and hangs out with the people that he meets during said games. Maybe he should be more focused on baseball instead of his dwarf killing an ogre grin.gif

In the clubhouse they call him "weird-Lew" just for that reason.

Of the curerent LF that Mn has on the roster I would rather have Lew then anyone else. Has good speed on the base paths has some pop in his bat and when given a chance to play has in the past put up good numbers. Who cares if he plays games on his off time, looks like you are really searching to find something wrong with him. So far all I have seen on this thread is what Twins player do we pick on this week.. I sure don't hear any comments on the numbers that Hunter is putting on the board. For the past 4 weeks he has pretty much carried this team along with Morneau who is swinging a heavy bat. Boof and Baker are pitching good enough to win and it looks like the Twins have stop sliding downward and are heading back up in the standings. Lot of pitchers on the Dl and this will be an interesting part of the season to get through.

G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB CS AVG OBP SLG OPS

Tyner Career 355 1135 137 307 32 9 0 82 54 119 56 13 .270 .307 .315 .622

Ford Career 449 1429 217 392 76 10 29 161 138 217 44 9 .274 .350 .402 .752

Ford has twice the doubles 29-0 in hrs twice the rbi and big margin in slugging and on base, yes he Ford has played almost a 100 more games and has 300 more at bats. I like Tyner also but Ford is more of an every day player between the two of them. A healthy White is who should be out there.

lew only had 4 hr's last year, and if tyner was in left we wouldnt be looking for power, just as i wouldnt be from lew. i think tyner is better on the bases and in field. 5 hr's a year for ford vs. 0 for tyner is pretty much a moot point. i dont think anyone in mn expects power from anyone but morneau, cuddy and t-hunt. thats why we play small ball.

Why is everyone ragging on Lew? We should be ragging on Nick Punto who will probably be batting .150 before the twins permanently replace him.

      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.

      Is the Frabill a thermal flip over? It sounds like a steal to me. I would go for it if you’re looking for a house that has more room. I have a Frabill 2 man thermal flip over and I really like it.

      Steve, Thanks for helping me get a deal on my Otter. I was able to pick it up at Marine General on Monday. Can't believe all of the ice stakes that came with it. Bought one of the Eskimo drill adapters to install them.

      Just out on 1st Lake after work 5” solid clear ice out to 17’ of water

      Any new updates on the ice thickness.  Looking to get out on walk-able ice this weekend.  Seems like the darn winds blows 45 mph every day lately.
    • nofishfisherman
      Thanks for the reply, I'll check them out.

      I went out on Horseshoe on Sunday and where the ice remained from the first freeze it is a solid 6 in.  Where it recently froze over last week its was 3 inches at best.  Now that we have snow cover it will be hard to find that line.  I was out with the wheeler on sunday but stayed on the "old" ice that I knew was "safe".  I wouldn't use a wheeler from the access or go exploring quite yet.  Plan on heading back out Thursday and will try and give an update

      went out last night. 2.5-3" of solid clear ice. Single digits last night and still pretty cold today...wouldn't be surprised to find another inch when i head out this evening.  Forecast temps have been lowered a few degrees so we shouldnt be losing any ice through the week/weekend. Hopefully making a bit more each night. Breaking out the popup this weekend!

      So there's a guy that wants to trade his Frabill 3 man side door entry flip over ice house for my one man clam Legend thermal Ice House. Thinking I might go for it but was wondering if I should stay away from Frabill for any reason? Wondering if I could get any input and if this is a good deal or not. Thanks in advance.
