I think thats the message that should be out there right now. Were hopeful that theyre our core group of guys. When you think about talent arriving at this level, theyre our first wave, and how they perform on this field will determine how much of the core they are going forward, and there will be another wave of talent coming behind them. I think most of our talent after you get past this wave, a lot of it is down at the lower levels. Theyre going to have time and opportunity to perform.The four prospects helped El Paso win the Pacific Coast League championship.

They need to go about playing baseball. Every bit of experience at this level is useful. It will also kind of give us a little bit of a road map for the offseason.The Padres entered Wednesday nights game in fourth place in the NL West at 64-87, 21 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers.San Diego will finish with its sixth straight losing season.
