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 — evermore / Trent Grisham

Her take: swifties often joke taylor forgets evermore, and with his at bats this season grish can get a little lost in the lineup. but he’s a star in his own right in center field, just like evermore is among taylor’s discography.

Our take: Slashing .206/.318/.375 in 313 plate appearances heading into Friday night's action, Grisham hasn't exactly been at the top of the favorite lists for many Padres fans. The same can be said for Evermore. Don't get me wrong (and don't come after me, Swifties) ... it's a fine album, but it certainly doesn't have the hits like some of her other eras. It's there and it's OK, kind of like Grisham in the San Diego lineup.

Taylor Swift Era and matching San Diego Padres player — midnights / Xander Bogaerts

Her take: he’s the new kid on the block, just like midnights. in such a short time, taylor has shared so many iterations of this album. in just a season we’ve seen the same of xander. but through the ups and downs, best believe he’s still bejeweled.

Our take: You have to wait a while for midnight to actually get here, and the same can be said for the Padres with Bogaerts this season. That nagging left wrist injury hasn't allowed him to be the All-Star player San Diego planned for him to be, but there's still plenty of time (see what we did there) in the season for Boagerts to crank up the production.
