The Padres' new AAA team is the El Paso Chihuahuas. I KNOW there are some people upset about this, but I absolutely love this team name! El Paso just got bumped up on my "areas to visit" list.
I am a Chihuahua person (I have had one all of my life) and I love them!
Also, I think it is just cool that a team is going with this name. There is something tough about it- kind of like when a team wears pink. It's kind of like saying, "we're so tough, we are going to call ourselves the Chihuahuas!"
