MONEYBALL

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to see the new movie Moneyball, starring Brad Pitt. It's about how the cash-strapped Oakland A's, decimated by free agency, put together a winning team on the field during the 2002 season, using sabermetrics and other fancy computerized mumbo-jumbo. It's a movie that will hit home for a lot of fans of cash-strapped baseball teams fed up with the rich teams winning all the time.

My review of the movie is here. Get a chance to see it in between playoff baseball games. (Fans of the Yankees and Phillies might have some unexpected time on their hands and may want to watch, too.)
