The Dodgers are still waiting on their NLDS opponent. Will it be the New York Mets or San Diego Padres? While the Dodgers are preparing for either one, our neighbors down south look to not be focused on the task at hand.

Yikes. It looks like the Padres don’t want Dodger fans to invade Petco Park as they always do. But, hey, Padres, two things; you know Dodger fans are EVERYWHERE, especially in San Diego County and all those other counties you listed. And second, you’re facing elimination tonight and have a good chance at not even making it out of the Wild Card series; you know that, right?
It’s funny to see the Padres already focused on the next thing instead of handling business first and worrying about Dodger fans invading San Diego like they always do.
However, I must admit that another Dodgers-Padres series would be epic and by far be the best division series in the league, at least on paper.
Los Angeles faced their division rivals 19 times in the regular season, going 14-5 in 2022. Even though the Padres have done everything in their power to try and dethrone Los Angeles, it hasn’t gone their way in the last couple of years. The postseason is a different beast so if they happen to advance, throw whatever you know about the Dodgers-Padres out the window.
As things stand, we are in our little brother’s head, and this proves it even more.
San Diego will look to survive and advance, while Los Angeles will play on Tuesday against tonight’s winner.
