  1. Tuesday’s game between El Paso Chihuahuas and Scranton/Wilkes was still a good game despite the Chihuahuas loss. Glad to hear that the San Diego Padres have elevated some key Chihuahua players and added them to their roster,like Austin Hedges, Hunter Renfroe, Manual Margot,and PCL rookie of the year Carlos Asuaje.Hopefully the Padres wont give these good pros the Cody Decker treatment and trade them to some other team.And as for the San Diego Padres, I wish them well and hope that they are able to field a good winning team at the start of next season. So they won’t continue to raid the dog house at the middle of the season taking away key Chihuahua players and adding them to their team. Yeah I know that the Chihuahuas belong to the Padres franchise and they can take away anyone they want.But let the Chihuahuas fully develop into a competitive championship team,something like the Fresno Grizzlies that went all the way last year winning the Gildon Championship game here in El Paso.
