Shakefire writes, "When it comes to baseball, typically the men with the biggest pockets can simply buy the best teams. I mean, just look at the New York Yankees. It’s no coincidence that they lead the league in both revenue and World Series titles. This means that small, cheaper teams like the Oakland Athletics have little chance of rising to the top when they can’t afford to pay for the best of the best.
Based on the 2003 book by the same name, Moneyball attempts to defy all standards when it comes to putting together a baseball team by only looking at statistics of players, rather than other factors that are often considered important."
