Moneyball

Billy  Beane brought sabermetrics to baseball. Well, at least according to the movie "Moneyball".

  1. If baseball is a game that has always been steeped in statistics? Why are statistics now controversial? ​

  2. Has sabermetrics changed the game of baseball?

  3. Who did Aaron Sorkin throw under the bus this time?

  4. Where does Steven Soderbergh fall into all of this?

Join us as we talk about everything right and wrong about Moneyball, and why this is a biopic that does not suck.​
