    This movie was absolute fraud

      It really was. Acts like le cheap sabermetric infielders were the stars of the team when they had three fricking cy young caliber pitchers at the same time.

      This dude winning one game off the Lakers in the finals was the closest thing I've seen to a "frick analytics" type player going all the way off of sheer grit and aura.

      He was only in that final because the league rigged hard to get the Sixers in over the Bucks. That Cassel-Allen-Robinson Bucks team was Lakers kryptonite when they had met that year.

        How many World Series did the Oakland A's win using Moneyball?

    • 3 weeks ago

      It clearly isn't and if you watch until the end you will see why. The metrics the cheapasses used were solid. OBP is more important than any other stat, by itself. Finding players who get on base instead of making outs is the key to scoring runs. Finding pitchers who throw strikes instead of walking opposing batters is the key to preventing runs.

      But the A's were cheap. They found a couple of pieces that improved the team and made the playoffs. But every other team pitcked up on this in short order, and those teams were willing to spend money.

      So at the end they say that he "used those principles to win the World Series ... with Boston." Not with Oakland.

        iirc the movie actually ends with something like "hes still trying to win his final game" or some shit, implying that billy hasnt won the world series

        That isn't even remotely what actually happened, the entire movie is bullshit and the A's were near or actually dead last in runs while having a brilliant group of pitchers. https://www.unz.com/article/moneybull-an-inquiry-into-media-manipulation/
        >It’s grounded in the premise that bringing high OBP-type players to the A’s roster will result in more runs scored and thus more wins. The film leads us to believe that the A’s went in that direction and it worked and that’s why they won the division championship. Good for Beane and Brand. The reality is that the 2002 A’s scored the fewest runs of any team in their division. They scored 800 runs over the course of the season, which was a whopping 84 fewer runs than the A’s scored in 2001. The A’s didn’t win the division in 2002 because they were scoring runs — no team was as bad as they were at doing that.

        >The A’s won in 2002 because they prevented runs. The statistic that jumps out when you review the A’s record in 2002 is team earned run average (ERA is the average number of runs pitchers give up per nine innings). It was the best in the division, an excellent 3.68. That accomplishment didn’t result from the performances of the pitchers Beane brought on board, Chad Bradford (with the funny throwing motion) and Ricardo Rincon (the pitcher obtained in the trade). They won a total of four games between them. It was due to three superb young starting pitchers, Barry Zito, Tim Hudson, and Mark Mulder, who collectively won 57 games. You will be hard-pressed to find three pitchers on any team, any year, that won that many games. Who scouted those three remarkable pitchers? That’s right, the out-of-touch white guys.
        The article is written from a white nationalist perspective, but the conclusions are quite sound and if you read it all the way through you'll understand some important things about media distortion of facts and how moneyball in particular is bullshit.

          Yeah and the team behind them in the AL West went up against the team that was not them in the Bay Area. Pretty funny end result to "such a great season"

      The real irony is Paulie Shore could win a fricking Best Actor Oscar as Richard Simmons if it’s a good enough script.

        It's a short film, but could still win best Short Film (which is the ultimate softball nepobaby category) and probably will, especially if he can get Richard Simmons to publicly endorse it
        Pauly's never gonna get a Best Actor nod. That would completely delegitimize the award.

    in terms of baseball GMs? there's shoot-from-the-hip guys like AJ Preller and Jerry Dipoto who make crazy trades but neither of their teams have seen a World Series.
    then there's Dave Dombrowski - orthodox in who he targets and dishes out big contracts to the best players available (reverse Moneyball?), has rings and pennants to back it up.

    If they made Moneyball today the clueless woke writers and producers would mix up Billy Beane and Billy Bean so the movie would just be 92 minutes of gay sex.

      Yes, every baseball team is very statistically analytic. Most teams try to marry scouting and numbers now though.

    Soccer is a low scoring, multitude of possible outcomes kind of game in which advanced analytics don't have much prediction power.

    Baseball is like the perfect team sport to parametrize.

      This. People forget Tejada and Chavez too. The shift to valuing OBP was smart, hatteberg was underrated. But iirc a lot of the book was about upcoming draft. Huge hype from those guys but what? only Blanton and Swisher ever did anything (for other teams)

      He didn't rely on chaos at all though. He was just a good chess player. One of his more relevant quote would be "I do not believe in psychology, I believe in playing good moves."
      That's the opposite of relying on chaos. If you want the chess equivalent of chaos, go with Mikhael Tal.
