    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Moneyball is still like a year away from release last I heard. Summer 2011 I'm thinking. Feels like that's been in production for a while now.

    I am currently reading "Built To Win" by John Schuerholtz (long time Braves GM). It talks about the book Moneyball a lot, so I kinda wish I would have read it first. but nevertheless it is pretty good.
