How the other side thinks

I was reading some official MLB Blogs, earlier this afternoon. One person did one blog entry where he listed his "all bum team." Amazingly enough, he listed Billy Beane as the "bum team's" general manager.
I was astonished by other fans' perspective on moneyball, largely their misconceptions. For instance, he writes how the a's draft 66th overall this season, which will disallow them from selecting Jabba the Hutt. Slow on the bases, can't wear a glove, and slightly suspect with the bat when he rarely swings.
It seems as though these people are brainwashed by Joe Morgan and his mornonic ability to understand how a small market team is using a little economic efficiency to build a ball club without handing out oversized contracts.

here's the moron's blogsite: http://jdbaseball.mlblogs.com/
