Moneyball follows the true story of Billy Beane the general manager of the Oakland A’s in the early 2000s. The premise is that Beane believed that the statistics and player guides that front offices had been using were outdated and not working. He changed what statistics that they looked at and sought after cheaper players that would fit his new system. He managed to create a competitive team that spent far less than teams like the New York Yankees. Beane is played by Brad Pitt and his number crunching cohort is played by comedy actor Jonah Hill. Moneyball should be on September 23rd, 2011.
