Matching San Diego Padres players with their Taylor Swift eras

If you didn't think there was a way to mesh members of the San Diego Padres with Taylor Swift and her sold-out Eras Tour, well, think again.

Taylor Swift Era and matching San Diego Padres player — speak now / Joe Musgrove

Her take: for “long live” alone, this made sense for a kid who grew up watching the padres and got to join the team.

polaroid king: i said remember this moment / i passed the pictures around

the no-no: you held your head like a hero / on a history book page

Our take: Mad props for this one. Love the connection between the local kid and him finally getting to dawn the brown and gold in a history-making way.

Can we also flip back to the incident in last year's postseason between Musgrove and the New York Mets where he was so dominant that Buck Showalter called for the umps to check him for illegal substances (which he wasn't using, of course). To quote Taylor here (and looking at you, Buck), "You, with your switching sides. And your wildfire lies and your humiliation ... why you gotta be so mean?"

Taylor Swift Era and matching San Diego Padres player — red / Juan Soto

Her take: i don’t know about you, but i’m feeling twenty twoooo.

red was a transition period for taylor, and soto is still trying to figure out how he fits with the padres

also listen to the title track and tell me it won’t apply if we lose him

Our take: This era was all about some iconic outfits that Swift wore and fans fell in love with just as much as her music. Padres fans loved seeing Soto debut in the brown and gold last season, and he pulls off the City Connect look in a stunning way as well. We expect him to stay looking good in a Padres uniform for the near future (including past the trade deadline).
