    READER Ò TEXT Moneyball The Art of Winning an Unfair Game Moneyball The Art of Winning an Unfair Game“The pleasure of rooting for Goliath is that you can expect to win The pleasure of rooting for David is that while you don’t know what to expect you stand at least a chance of being inspired” This book came out in 2003 and the movie version came out in 2011; yet it is amazing to me that despite the success shown by the Oakland As under the guidance of Billy Beane baseball for the most part is still focusing on the wrong things Just recently the manager of the New York Mets Terry Collins who commands one of the best teams in the world said in an interview after the World Series “I’m not sure how much an old school guy can add to the game today’’ Collins told USA Today

    READER Ò TEXT Moneyball The Art of Winning an Unfair Game Moneyball The Art of Winning an Unfair GameI read Moneyball at a time when I wasn't reading too much besides preschool kids books and reread it for the baseball book club I am a part of on good reads Michael Lewis follows the story of general manager Billy Bean and his 2002 Oakland As a low budget baseball team that managed to win their division going away What is remarkable is that Bean built his team focusing on sabermetrics not home runs and RBIs He knew he did not have money to compete with the Yankees of the world and assembled a team of Harvard brainiacs to read stats in order to then assemble the best low cost baseball team his money could buy An amazing t

    READER Ò TEXT Moneyball The Art of Winning an Unfair Game Moneyball The Art of Winning an Unfair GameThis is one of the best baseball books I have ever read and that is saying something Lewis’ focus is on Billy Bean the GM of the Oakland Athletics Because Oakland is a small market team Bean must use his brain to tease out the players who can help his team at a reasonable cost This makes him a sort of anti Steinbrenner Lewis goes into some detail on how Bean manages to field competitive teams almost every year under dire fiscal constraints Must read for any true baseball fan and a source of hope for fans of small market teams The film version was a top notch interpretation of the book a lovely surprise 41318 NY Times How Do Athletes’ Brains Control Their Movements by Zach Schonbrun Fascinating article Maybe the next level in the expanding realm of the sort of baseball analysis someone like Billy Bean might employ to get an edge over wealthier franchisesIt would seem to have almost nothing to do with their biceps muscles or fast twitch fibers

    READER Ò TEXT Moneyball The Art of Winning an Unfair Game Moneyball The Art of Winning an Unfair Game“It breaks your heart” A Bartlett Giamatti wrote of baseball in a piece called The Green Fields of the Mind “It is designed to break your heart” And so it does year after year Baseball as has often been noted is a game predicated on failure The game’s best hitters only succeed in roughly three out of ten at bats A 162 game season presents a tremendous sample size which should iron out aberrations; and yet year after year entire seasons come down to a single bad bounce or mistimed swing or hanging curve or missed call You can spend an entire summer of lazy days drinking beer and cheering for your 100 win team only to watch them sputter and die in a five game series in October It doesn’t seem fair sometimes Michael Lewis’s Moneyball is about a man who tried to crack the code to find the secret to winning an “unfair” game Tha

    READER Ò TEXT Moneyball The Art of Winning an Unfair Game Moneyball The Art of Winning an Unfair GameThis is a good book but not as good as I thought it was going to be Sometimes I find technical writing to be a bit repetitive and this definitely leans toward technical non fiction than biography I was hoping for of a human interest story here—because even though Billy Beane takes up a large chunk of the story it isn’t really a story about Billy Bean per se Moneyball was published in 2003 only a year after John Henry bought th
