Format: DVD
I am not a follower of baseball, although I followed last seasons home town events with interest with the Giants, even watching the final of the World Series for the first time. Despite my rudimentary knowledge of the game, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.

Moneyball tells of how Billy Beane, the Oakland A's general manager played by Brad Pitt, faced with limited resources, and losing some of his star players to the Yankees hires a Yale economics graduate and statistician played by Jonah Hill, and devises a system for buying undervalued players to replace the likes of Giambi, by looking at players in new ways.

It's a calculated risk that flies in the face of conventional wisdom, and met with much resistance on the field, within the club, and from the media. Suffice to say that previous methods of picking though amusing were highly dubious.

"He has an ugly girlfriend."

"What does that mean?"

"Ugly girlfriend means he has no confidence."

Memorable movie lines:

"The problem we're trying to solve is that there are rich teams, and there are poor teams. Then there's 50 feet of crap. And then there's us. It's an unfair game."

"I hate losing. I hate losing more than I love winning."

The screenplay was written by Aaron Sorkin who created West Wing and won the Best Screenplay Oscar for The Social Network, and slides comfortably home with this effort.

Philip Seymour Hoffman plays the unhappy team coach with whom Beane bumps heads. Robin Wright Penn plays his ex wife, now with a new man who does not follow baseball.

“Not winning the last game makes no difference if you’ve won twenty”that was one good
line from this movie,I can’t believe I enjoy this movie this much,to see how the baseball world
works,I guess some people see these guys (the players)and think all the antics they do on and
off the field, just comes from them being brats maybe sometimes,but after seeing this I have a
totally different perspective on the way the baseball world works,it’s not easy getting fired from your
job every month or year,even if you make 30 Million,I’ve hold from watching this for a long time and
now that I’ve seen it,some parts of the movie was very emotional for me,it’s really well played out to
the point of giving the viewer the cut-throat world of baseball, “Money-Ball” work on so many levels,
especially “Jonah Hill” which I love in this movie,he played the young just out of Yale-educated economist
so good,I almost didn’t see Jonah Hill as the actor that he is,it was that good, I mean “Brad Pitt” is Brad Pitt
he’s done way more movies than J.Hill,sometimes I caught Brad looking at the camera to read his lines,
Very Good Movie...

The Film 4.5/5

Moneyball is a refreshing change from the usual type of sports movie. How many times have you watched the story of an underdog triumphing? How many movies introduce us to a controversial coach who is initially resented because of his methods and then revered by all when he succeeds? This story is certainly a celebration of success, but not in the typical sense. In fact, it asks us to define success.

It's based on the true story of how General Manager Billy Beane (Pitt) employed a new way of thinking in order to enable the Oakland Athletics to compete with the likes of the New York Yankees. He did this with just one third of the payroll of that available to the Yankees.The opening scenes show Beane negotiating with the team's owner. He knows that his payroll won't jump from $40 million to $120 million, but can he get a little more money to help the A's compete?

The first thing I was taught in my college marketing class was to define the problem. How you can analyze a problem if you don't know what it is? You won't solve anything until you know what you are trying to do. I find that I use the same technique in all areas of my life.

As an avid professional and amateur sports fan, I have learned over the years to pay increasing attention to statistics as another valuable tool in assessing the strength of my teams. Though I have never felt inclined to join a fantasy league or be part of a sports pool, I still see the need to check the numbers out as to the positional strength of key players as they match up going into a new season. If it is the health and shape of a starting or relief pitcher in baseball, wins, starts, ERA, strikeouts, time on the DL, walks and home-runs yielded should tell me a lot if these stats are compiled over three or four years. Then, on the other hand, they may not because, in and of themselves, they fail to disclose a fatal flaw such as being unable to get right-handed hitters out on full counts. It was Billy Beane's overachieving Oakland Athletics at the turn of the 21st century that led the way in using a broad range of statistics to formulate winning teams. This tool has become the great equalizer for small-market teams to be competitive for new and untapped talent. Simply going out and buying championship teams like the Yankees doesn't cut it any more. In the post-steroid age, MLB teams are now adopting a more sophisticated analytical approach to assessing what meets their immediate point of need. The free-agent market, while still lucrative to a very few ball players and teams, isn't the way to grow success. In football, I notice the Packers make a big deal about building the team from scratch without entering free-agency for overpriced players. The secret is to work within your player personnel budget and develop players who are teachable, trainable, and contributing to the overall welfare of the team on the court, field, or ice.Read more ›
