While the San Diego Padres, thanks to their signing of Manny Machado, nabbed the West Coast cover of the Sports Illustrated MLB Preview 2019, the Philadelphia Phillies, thanks to their big money signings, nabbed the East Coast covers.

Question is, will the vaunted Sports Illustrated cover jinx affect either team this year?
