If you’re in the mood for 15 hundred words on the AL West, you’ve come to the right place! Or you will end up in the right place after you click this internet link. I don’t know why anyone would ever have such a mood, or how it would go about manifesting in a person, but fuck it—I’m not a scientist, I’m a half-assed baseball writer. All your favorite AL West teams make a substantial appearance: The Rangers! The Angels! The Mariners! The Athletics! Not the Astros! I’m happy the Astros aren’t around yet, because that would have meant more writing for me, and it would have been boring writing to boot, because god are the Astros boring.
