A's Have Struggled To Live Up To 'Moneyball's' Promises

The movie tells a fictionalized story of a plucky band of innovative daredevils who found a new path to victory. And while the throngs see the movie, the A's languish in the American League West, out of the race since the all-star break. Many of the concepts espoused in "Moneyball" have been abandoned. The once-heralded draft picks and trade acquisitions have floundered. This was not the way it was supposed to be.
