This is going to be a very short post. But the movie Moneyball is nice and long and so that sort of makes up for it. It is the kind of movie that you never look at your watch to see what time it is.

Moneyball is a really good movie. Brad Pitt deserves an Oscar for his role as General Manager of the Oakland Athletics.

Brad Pitt is in every single scene. He is so perfect for the part. For once this is not a chick flick. But the women will love it because he is such fun to look at.

No, I think the men will love this movie. I am a big baseball fan and so I found it very interesting and educational. I never did understand the trading of players and this was so real.

The story starts with the fact that the NY Yankees have a budget of $114 million and the Oakland A’s have a budget of $39 million. It is very difficult to compete for players when the odds are so stacked against you in the money department.

This is a true story of a real person and how he turned the Oakland team around. I don’t want to spoil it for you by telling you how he did it and what actually transpired.

You will have to go see this movie to find out. And I recommend having a hot dog and a coke while you are watching to get the real baseball feeling.
