Twins Low A Team in St. Paul (Names?)
There has been a lot of talk about what will happen with the Beloit "Snappers" and if the Twins will move their low A team to a different city - St. Paul is one of the speculated destinations.
What if they do indeed move to St. Paul (proposed Lower Town site) in a few years and share a stadium with the "Saints" - what in the world will be the team's name?
What are your choices? I'll start with this -
Pig's Eye "Bootleggers" of Saint Paul
Let's have at it!!!

Saint Paul Apostles-The name of the 19th century ball club that played nine games.

i'd like the team to use right half of the minny and paul logo and call themselves the "paulies". stupid name on the surface, but it'd be an homage to the big league team.
if not, then i'd like it to be the st. paul vulcans. it'd be a nod to the city's heritage while at the same time incorporating star trek into the fold. think of the marketing opportunities! vulcan caps could come with pointy ears, the vulcan salute could be given after home runs, etc.

Keeping "Snappers" wouldn't be terrible - Saint Paul Snappers sounds ok.
I like Bootleggers and Apostles
other ideas with an "S" sound:
Celtics (large Irish Population in Saint Paul)
Scholars (a nod to all the local colleges)
Summits (after the street, not the beer)
or completely different
Maybe call them the "Pig's Eye Pirates" ? skip the Saint Paul part altogether . . .

The team moved to St.Paul cannot be Beloit. Beloit is community owned, as well as Burlington which would be the other likely team to be moved.Follow my photography, group page can be found here.
