2022 NLCS- Phillies/Padres

I'm getting a feeling that just getting past the Mets and Dodgers (two 100+ win teams) is going to be moral victory enough for the Padres.

This has never felt like a championship-caliber team all season.

That said, I would have sworn about ten days before the end of the season when the Phillies were struggling mightily with teams like the Nationals that they were absolutely dead in the water and that the Brewers were going to overtake them down the stretch.

I'm actually mildly surprised Wheeler didn't get hurt earlier in the game with how hard he was throwing tonight.

We'll see if it factors into Game 4/5 match-ups.  Maybe not.

 

Now all the pressure shifts to Blake Snell and Joe Musgrove for Games 2/3.

I’m instantly a fan of Alvarado.

First I've seen him pitch.  Winning run at the plate and he just attacked Machado and Bell.  That was outstanding.

Bell has been terrible for months.

Which means Hahn will probably sign him and lock Eloy into LF.

Well, Bell can play 1B and DH so welcome aboard Josh.

I sure hope Rick Hahn's seat at the table keeps him warm while at home watching the stars he couldn't sign lead their teams to post season success.

You're blaming him for Wheeler?

What would have been a better deal, $140 million for Wheeler or $55.5 million for Keuchel?

This is the definition of a rhetorical question.  Didn't W. C. Fields once say "I'd rather be in Philadelphia?"

He hasn't been close to a $300-500 million type of player since joining the team. Soto does certainly walk a lot, though. 

All I see on the Padres subreddit is people calling Soto the 2nd coming of Eric Hosmer lmao.

They only have his contract for two more years so not quite the same situation lol. 

Juan Soto is one of the best hitters of all-time through age 23. Eric Hosmer is overpaid and bad. They aren't comparable at all.
