And Another Thing

Associated Press
Oakland Athletics Coco Crisp, right, speaks with "MoneyBall" actor Stephen Bishop before Tuesday's game against the Texas Rangers.

My take on "Moneyball"

So here are the only two things I have to say right now about the film "Moneyball," which stars Brad Pitt and is adapted from Michael Lewis' book about the Oakland A's stat-geek GM, Billy Beane:

1. I'll probably go see it because I hear it's a well-done film, and I'm a big fan of well-done films (and, ahem, some which are not so well done).

2. It would probably have a much bigger impact if the A's that Beane built with his revolutionary methods weren't, you know, 20 games out of first at the moment.
