    I am so not okay with the name Twinsville.

    I agree with Wendy. I think the new home for our Hennepin County Twins should be “The Boondoggle”.

    Is “Twinsville” better or worse than “Corporate Sponsor Field”?

    Although, frankly (to me), that whole corporate sponsor naming of the fields really depends on the name of the corporate sponsor.

    Ford Field: Not so bad.
    Minute Maid Park: Ennnhhhh.
    Target Center: Not so bad.
    Xcel Energy Center: Only gets away with it because you can call it “The X.”
    Edward Jones Dome: Uh, no.
    Comerica Park: Not really.

    Maybe the shorter the sponsor name, the better. And whatever happened to naming facilities after people (e.g. Joe Louis Arena)? (Edward Jones is an investment company; I looked that one up.)
