AL West standings have a hilarious NSFW message

Look down the standings in the AL West and you’ll notice the logos for the Athletics, Mariners, Astros, Angels and Rangers spell out a NSFW message.

The AL West standings on Saturday, Apr. 24 were the stuff dreams are made of.

That is if your dreams revolve around quirky coincidences and laughter-inducing profanity.

Sports fans, particularly those of teams in the AL West, were given that gift when someone on Twitter noticed something very specific about how the logos of the Athletics, Mariners, Astros, Angels and Rangers were arranged.

Yes, that spells A-*-*-H-A-T, completed by the A’s apostrophe S in glorious fashion.

The AL West has spelled out a couple of fun words this week

The AL West has been a goldmine for those who see patterns. Just a few days ago, the standings spelled out S-L-O-T-H with the first letter of each team’s abbreviation.

When people joked about the possibility of the more NSFW scenario involving the team logos, who would have predicted it would arrive so quickly?

A lot actually had to happen to bring it about. The perfect combination of results ensued.

Oakland continued their impressive 13-game winning streak with an additional three victories.

The Mariners won two of three against the Red Sox on the road.

Houston broke out of their 1-9 slump to snatch three straight from the Angels.

Los Angeles lost four in a row to the Rangers and Astros.

The Rangers followed up their win over the Angels with two losses to the White Sox.

The quickly shifting standings go to show how competitive the division is in 2021. Oakland currently reigns, but all five teams are still very much involved in the fight for first place. Hot streaks and cold fronts have defined the battle so far.
