Twinkie Town Stud of the Week: Paul Allen

New, 27 comments

Welcome back to the Twinkie Town Stud of the Week! This is where we highlight the #1 person in or outside of the organization who really showed they have they have the "cojones" to be top dog among the Twins.

This is the owner of the Trail Blazers, "Paul Allen", but we're talking about a different Paul Allen (and don't have any other pictures).

This week's stud is:

Paul Allen

Paul Allen is a radio sports talk DJ on KFAN in the Twin Cities. As you most likely know, the Twins happen to have a minor-league player who is widely labeled as the third best prospect in America: Miguel Sano. Sano is also considered by many to be the best power prospect in the nation--something the Twins desperately need.

But hey--what do you think Miguel Sano's trade value is?! I got started thinking when FSN tweeted this:

Paul Allen is on the ball! He asked Roy Smalley about the subject: "Would you trade Miguel Sano right now, straight up for Chris Sale?" adding, "What do you got against pitching?"

This sparked the question by Twins Daily's Parker Hageman:

HENCE FOURTH--Miguel Sano is ON THE TRADING BLOCK!

Paul Allen, for having the "cojones" to suggest the Twins should trade the third best prospect in the country, who is already widely loved by Twins fans, you are Twinkie Town's Stud of the Week.

STUD OF THE WEEK RUNNER UP: Brian Dinkelman--position player for the AAA Rochester Red Wings who pitched a perfect inning earlier this week. (Sorry Jamey Carroll, your name just isn't as cool.)

Let's discuss the possibility and probability of trading Miguel Sano below--and please be respectful! Even if we disagree, we can be friends. We're all in this together!
