Moneyball commentary at Bucs Dugout

Some of you may be aware that I have a split allegiance between the A's and the Pirates (it has something to do with growing up in central Pennsylvania).  Anyway, I am delighted to welcome Bucs Dugout to the Sportsblog family.  The site is a little quiet right now (I think a total of 5 people have registered and posted!), but us BD pioneers (I'm "Momen 21" there) have high hopes for the site.

Today Charlie, the webmaster at Bucs Dugout, posted a diary commenting on an interview conducted with a beat writer for the Pirates that was in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Among the topics of discussion were "Moneyball" and Billy Beane's success in Oakland (in contrast with Pirates GM Littlefield's lack of success in building a good small market team).

Here's a link:

It would be great to have some of our AN folks come and visit and help jumpstart the site.  It will remind you of when AN was just starting out.  The topic of the above link is certainly something you will all have opinions on!
