Sad: San Diego Padres Twitter account sent a total of TWO TWEETS last night during NLCS Game 1
I have honestly NEVER witnessed a city fold so quickly. Zack Wheeler and the Philadelphia Phillies took every last drop of momentum out of the San Diego Padres last night with a 2-0 victory in Game 1 of the NLCS.
We should have known this was coming. In my Game 1 preview yesterday, I even mentioned that the Padres were acting like they already won the World Series by beating the New York Mets in the Wild Card and then the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLDS. With each passing moment, that appears to be more evident.
First, you had all the cringeworthy rap videos from Padres fans popping up on social media throughout the day yesterday. Second, you had a group of artists painting the San Diego Chicken mural which featured that dumb, fast food-looking Chicken stomping on the Phillie Phanatic.
All of that happened before Game 1 of the NLCS. San Diego and Padres fans got way ahead of themselves and they are already paying the price.
The Padres Twitter account was nonexistent last night. They sent a total of TWO TWEETS during the game, which if you look at them next to each other, is absolutely hilarious.

Things continued to get worse for San Diego this morning. The mural has been removed, and later this afternoon, the Padres will have to figure out how to hit Aaron Nola in Game 2 of the NLCS while sending Blake Snell to the mound.
Blake Snell is a pitcher that got absolutely SHELLED by the Phillies during the regular season.
On the year, Snell went 8-10 with a 3.38 ERA. Against the Phillies this season, Snell got lit up twice, going 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA and nine strikeouts.

On May 18th, Rhys Hoskins hit a home run off Snell. On June 25th, JT Realmuto hit a home run off Snell. This postseason, Snell is 1-0 with a 3.12 ERA while striking out 11. Heat Check: Bryce Harper has homered in three straight games.
