Moneyball

September 26, 2011

I am a sucker for baseball movies and my wife is a sucker for Brad Pitt.  The weekend we went to see Moneyball and we were both pleased.  This is a really good movie made out of a not so easy story to tell: how some guys used statistics as their tool to renovate a MLB team.  The acting is great and the story telling is wonderful.

What I found most interesting was the bravery of taking something that was only slightly broken and fixing it with a completely new approach.  The A’s that Billy Beane messed with were not complete failures – they had won the division the year before.  But Beane realized that his business model could not successfully compete with the Yankees and he was going to have to take a whole new approach.

This movie is fun to watch, but also very thought provoking.  Highly recommended.
