The Padres advanced to the NLDS for the first time since 2020, when they were swept by the Dodgers in three games. Prior to that, the Pads hadn’t been in the playoffs since 2006. San Diego hasn’t had many chances to take down L.A. in the postseason and this may be its best shot. Juan Soto, Manny Machado, Josh Bell, Jurickson Profar, etc make the Padres’ lineup formidable. The pitching staff did well against the Mets in the Wild Card series win. The Pads are ready.
The Dodgers enter as the favorites to win the World Series after finishing with the best record in baseball this season. The Dodgers have a deep pitching staff despite losing Walker Buehler and not having Dustin May for most of the season.
