    Moneyball falls into the same category as The Big Short.
    Its comfy to have somebody spoon feed you the entire movie. No thinking is the true end game of movies. You can sit back and relax

      The gAy's haven't won a series in almost 35 years and never even made it past the ALCS during the Moneyball era
      Zito/Hudson/Mulder were dimes but as a team they've almost always sucked dick

        The A's largest ever contract was given in 2004 for 6 years, 66 million.
        The current owner bought the team in 2005.

      worst part is that they completely gloss over the established players in Zito, Mulder, Tejada and Chavez. Great movie but frick i hate that they never touch it

      Cant really blame the team when ownership has been cheap as shit since the turn of the century.

    Being a baseball fan is the one reason I do not like it. The point of the film is supposed to be "learn new ways to improve", and that is a valid concept for any business. But at the end it is casually mentioned that the Red Sox used those newer ideas to win the World Series, unlike the A's. The whole point of that is the Red Sox had a much higher team salary than the A's ever did.
    New ideas only work if you have money backing them. That's the real "money" in "Moneyball".

      The point of the movie is the main character chooses his family over material pursuit. Something he didn't do the first time but wanted to when given a second chance

    Real question here, in my group of friends, people like to go in to autism level theory crafting when it comes to players whether it be football or american footbal -- like they all have thousands of hours in football manager games. My question is this, how valuable are the players based on stats alone, how valuable is the team when you construct a frankenstein based of stats? Doesn't the sport boil down to team spirit?

      >how valuable are the players based on stats

      their stats determine their salaries, in general. Arbitration hearings are based on every conceivable stat, but they sides usually settle for an amount that helps the team more.

      >how valuable is the team when you construct a frankenstein based of stats

      It rarely works as a long-term concept. The teams with the highest salaries generally make the playoffs more and win the World Seires most often. Teams that build from the system up generally do better overall. Rent-a-stars are generally disappointing.

      >Doesn't the sport boil down to team spirit?

      Analysts are hesistant to explore something that cannot be measured. Despite that, the most famous one ever, Bill James, always started every article by mentioning that he is trying to find out what makes a difference in various aspects of the game, and what doesn't; and that there are many things that cannot be measured that make a difference. A lot of analysts don't like to mention that, probably because some of them are running sports-betting con games to convince bettors that they have "the system" that really works.

      Every baseball team is a "Frankenstein" team. Baseball is not a team sport, you just get the best players you can find according to your team philosophy, there's no consideration needed for how they "fit" together.

    What is the appeal of baseball?

    • 3 weeks ago

      watching it on tv? absolutely none. but as far as seeing a game in person, the tickets are by far the cheapest of all the major sports leagues, you can go see a baseball game for 30 bucks still. some stadiums have promos like 2 dollar hot dogs and beers. so you can spend 500 dollars for a day at an NFL game or less than 100 dollars for a day at a baseball game.

        my step dad used to drag me to baseball games as a kid, i never liked the sport but what i found was that it was nice to just sit there and hang out while the game played out, its not called "americas favorite pass-time" for a no reason.

          yeah I agree, there are worse ways to spend a day. and like I said NFL these days is insane. hundreds of dollars for basic tickets and then you get there and a shitty burger is 25 dollars. 8 dollar beers. compared to NFL, MLB is very affordable.

      It's so fun when you're a kid and you get to actually go to games and experience it
      Watching on TV doesn't compare but I don't see how watching people kick a ball around a pitch is any better

      He's wrong. First, the sport is pastoral. A big part of the appeal is the romanticism of the sport and lower league play. It can be somewhat lazy and relaxing because it has such a long season that just drags. However, that leads to the second appeal. Second, no other sport has the build up of baseball. The entire season eventually comes down to a single pitcher facing down a single batter. No other sport has that build up and tension. It exists in individual games as well, and especially down the stretch into the playoffs, but the entire enterprise literally comes down to one single standoff between a pitcher and a batter.

        Yeah I like how much an individual game or season swings through different moods as they progress. Relaxation with a hot dog in hand one point, witnessing in awe as a fan makes the best catch of the entire game at another, chatting up someone nearby, then suddenly you realize you're down by two with the bases loaded in the 9th and the atmosphere has reached a knife's edge. Any other sports is a simple on/off switch of emotion in comparison.

          Yeah. I'm not even a big fan of the sport but you just have to respect how much build up it pulls off. It happens in individual games to a certain extent--but part of the overall feel is just dog days off summer and the idea there's always time to catch up. But by the end of the season everything just focuses in from hundreds of games and 10s of thousands of pitches into a single game. Then from there it comes down to single innings to a single at bat. On top of that the sound of a bat connecting with a pitch is the most satisfying sound in any sport. It translates to television but hearing it in the park with the slight echo, how it just cracks and you hear it from anywhere, is so satisfying.
