Real baseball team story and how a team is saved and can still win it all.
Moneyball is a very real story of a baseball team that has to deal with a low market professional team. You can guess the Oakland team, ha ha. In today's market, the salaries get way out of line and Moneyball tells a true story of how baseball is saved in this small Oakland market for the fans and shows a team still can win.

MONEYBALL ..baseball theory
Excellent product...I purchased it because I wanted it for my video collection. I liked the theme behind the movie. Just recruit first base hitters. They will drive each other home. The recruits really dont have to spend big bucks for heavy long ball hitters. I would recommend this movie for all baseball fans.

Not a traditional baseball movie, but still a great one.
Great movie well worth two hours. Brad Pitt is sharp as Billy Beane, although different than the book's picture. The movie glosses over the statistical ananlysis found in the book, but mixes in enough to give the flavor of the A's experiment. The smaller scenes are very real, especially the scenes with aging or marginal players struggling to hang on. Sometimes the dramatic clash between old school baseball guys and new school analysis guys is (almost comically) overdone, but it still works. It is not a traditional baseball movie: it takes the front office perspective which makes it harder to identify with the players.
