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 — lover / Ha-Seong Kim

Her take: san diego loves him. the team loves him. he loves both. i’ve never seen such a lover coded person in my life.

Our take: Entering Friday's game against the New York Mets, Kim led the Padres in bWAR with 4.0 on the season. Yes, more than Tatis, Soto, or anyone else on the roster. He's been perhaps the most underrated player on not just the Padres, but perhaps in the entire division this season. He absolutely should have received more love in All-Star Game voting.

During the Lover era, Swift put out a song called "The Man." Part of the lyrics follow: "I'd be a fearless leader. I'd be an alpha type. When everyone believes ya. What's that like?" Kim is one of the leaders for the Padres, and absolutely everyone not only believes in him, but in his value to the team as well.

Taylor Swift Era and matching San Diego Padres player — folklore / Jake Cronenworth

Her take: “this is me trying” fits jake’s season so well this year. he’s admitted to being extremely hard on himself, and taylor does the same in folklore, but we know how great he can be.

Our take: This era was another transition for Swift as she moved into more of an indie feel. It feels like this year has been a transition for Cronenworth as well after signing that seven-year, $80 million deal. The pressure has been on him to live up to that contract. Will he adapt into the player the Padres bet on with that deal? Padres fans hope a new era for Cronenworth is coming soon.
