      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 .

I think the Twins should bring up Sloey and Garza and go with the Santana, Bonser, Baker, Sloey and Garza rotation. Put Ortiz and Silva in the pen. God knows we need some arms out there too. We might as well see what these "hot prospects" are made of. I don't think we are going to the playoffs with our current lineup regardless of how we pitch. The Tigers and Indians are tough and with our current team, we won't catch them. So, lets go young....

You have to wait until June so that these guys don't become arbitration eligible too soon.

Not that I'm a big Silva fan, but one bad start this season and you are ready to send him to the bullpen, before his last start he was given 1 run in his previous three games. Now Ortiz on the other hand, don't know that I would even trust him in the bullpen, other than the fact that seems like over half of them are hurt right now. It is also pretty early to write them off. If they are still playing this way around the all-star break I'm all for it. grin.gif

Ditto, it's too early to jump off the bandwagon. Ponson is gone as he should be, Silva's been a surprise, but save one really bad outing, pretty consistent. If Ortiz doesn't right himself by the end of June & probably sooner, I'd guess he'll be bunking with Ponson. Those guys gave us some good starts, Ortiz several of them, so the youngsters could get some more time in the minors. I'd expect we'll still see Garza yet this year, probably not Slowey, but hard to say.

Our offense has mostly been the problem & I think that will come around. Although as much as I like Nick Punto I think his last year's offensive numbers were over his head. Bartlett should improve, but it's time to start seeing a little more of that, the same with Kubel. The middle of the lineup, save Torii has been a little hot & cold, but has put up some solid numbers, as has Castillo, they need Mauer back healthy. I think they'll be fine. They may not win the divsion, but I think they'll be in it most of the way, excluding currently.

torii hasnt been a little hot and cold. he has been our best offensive player all year, hands down!! there has been no up or down. we need mauer back and someone to step into the 2 spot. i personally wouldnt mind seeing joe-ma bat there and go 1 castillo, 2 mauer, 3 cuddy, 4 morneau, 5 hunter, 6 cirillo at 3rd, 7 whichever we choose to dh, maybe kubel, 8 tyner in left and 9 bartlett. dh is our most needed position. you got kubel, ford, punto. i'd like to see rondell come back and give it a try, or even try rondell in left again, he seemed to have a little more success at the plate when he was in the field. my .02 cents.

Green,

I agree with you except for one point. I think Hunter thrives with some protection behind him. I would make my everyday order the following: Castillo, Mauer, Hunter, Morneau, Cuddy, Ford, Bartlett....... I think Cuddy is the guy who needs the least amount of protection. I may be totally wrong there. He just seems less fickle and has less really bad at bats. Hunter and Morneau have some of the worst at bats I have ever seen. They remind me of Jacques Jones every once in a while. then the next time up the hit a 3-run jack. With all the injuries who knows. We need one more big bat. Maybe its Rondell once he gets healthy. He worries me though. I think he is either done or will have a season like the last half of last year. Lets hope its the latter.

Go Twins!

I like the middle of the lineup as it is no matter how you put Cuddyer,Morneau,Hunter and Mauer when he comes back. Mauer is no #2 hitter , unless he was with the Yanks or Boston. We need to have Tyner or Barlett fill the #2 hole with speed and On base % to give the meat of the order more RBI's. Maybe even Ford as #2. Kubel belongs at the end of the order. My gut call is Bartlett gets most of the #2 slot when he comes back. White, if he comes back healthy, goes to #6 or #7, dpend on what you think of Kubel. I personally like FOrd over Kubel, and Kubel can fill in on a off day.

Twins may not win the DIV, but CLev always falls off and no other DIv in the AL is getting the WC other than the central. When you look at the Twins comapared to where they were last yeat, they are in pretty good shape, thou no Lirainao, thou he did get hurt but gave us 12 wins.

Baker pitched really good tonight agst a tough jays lineup. He might be what we need as it certainly won't be Silva or Ortiz in my mind.

GO Twins- and win the close ones, and you'll be in it in the end.

I'd be disappointed if the Twins threw in the towel already. I don't like our chances in this division, but I didn't like them last year either after they dug a hole early.

Green,

Bigbucks is in agreement with you regarding Torii. He used "save" in a context you may not be familiar with.

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties

      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
