Too bad the Athletics never finished number one in baseball.

Nerd Question of the day:

Which type of logical fallacy is on display at the end of the video clip?

How does he know it’s a wonderful book? Does anyone really believe that guy has read Moneyball? Come on.

I make it a policy to believe anyone with teeth that white.

I just want to point out that Michael Lewis is a financial writer, not a baseball writer. That book was not so much about baseball as it was about exploring financial inefficiencies to increase efficiency. “The Big Short” and “Liar’s Poker” are also great reads.

I wonder if Joe Morgan is going to see the movie…

If so, I feel sorry for the people around him that will have all the movie’s dialogue forcibly replaced by a recitation of Dave Concepcion’s HOF merits.

No, he’ll just talk about that movie written by Billy Beane.

He won’t see it and will instead spit out some drivel that goes along the lines of “I already know what it’s going to be about” and “You can’t win baseball games with just a computer” and “I wonder how long it took Billy Beane before he settled on having himself played by Brad Pitt.”
