It's been a long time since SABRmetric was a dirty word in baseball. Since people argued that Joe Carter and Juan Gonzalez were MVP caliber players, wins and rbis were what mattered most, and the A's were a crazy experiment.
But we were there. I may have moved far away, but tonight found me in a Fairfax, Virginia theater, wearing my A's cap and vintage 2001 Athletics Nation ringer (In Billy We Trust!). It's a magical movie. Utterly authentic, it reminds me why I love the game, love the A's, and love Billy Beane.
I want to quit my job, move back to the bay area, and buy me some season tickets. Anyone need a top notch Perl developer?
