Taylor Swift Era and matching San Diego Padres player — 1989 / Blake Snell
Her take: this one was a hard pick, but snell is at the top of his game right now. when 1989 came out, so was taylor. for a while this was her peak, and she only got better.
plus can’t you just see snell being goofy and dancing to shake it off?
Our take: Yeah, actually, we can see that happening. Snell is absolutely feeling it on the mound right now, so why not?
We'll also throw these lyrics from "Wildest Dreams" out there as well: "Nothing lasts forever. But this is getting good now." That can certainly apply to Snell's last seven starts where he has allowed just three earned runs in 42.0 innings, good for an ERA of 0.64 and FIP of 1.86.
Looking at those numbers, Padres fans do hope it last forever, but with Snell being a free agent next season, what lies ahead?
Taylor Swift Era and matching San Diego Padres player — reputation / Fernando Tatis Jr.
Her take: zero explanation needed
Our take: After getting snubbed for the All-Star Game, we're expecting a revenge tour for Tatis in the second half of the season as he changes the narrative around his reputation. El Niño may well look at the rest of MLB, shrug, and say, “Look What You Made Me Do.”
