Moneyball (2011) is a heartwarming movie about baseball, featuring Brad Pitt as the star actor. In this movie, the Oakland Aâ€™s have ended their season in 2011, resulting in a loss of their fifth game.Even though they had loss, their accomplishment was still admirable since many consider them a poor team. They certainly arenâ€™t up to par with the New York yankees.
In their off season, they had lost three of their best players. Billy Beane is aware that they will never win the World Series now that they have lost their three best players. Now his job is to try and figure out how to replace these players. He definitely has a lot of work to do.
A meeting takes place in the movie with the Cleveland Indians Management regarding all of the places and in this scene is when Billy meets a man named Peter Brand. Peter works for the Indians, specializing in player analysis. He is also a graduate from Yale Economics.
Eventually Billy decides to hires Peter as the Aâ€™s assistant GM because he has a similar thought process as himself. Peter steps forward to convince Billy to look at players who arenâ€™t performing well. The plan is to overlook their strengths and touch up on their weaknesses.
In Moneyball (2011), Billy eventually acquires a new team member named Scott Hatteberg who has recovered from a horrible elbow injury. The problem is that he canâ€™t throw but instead they allow him to play first base. The Aâ€™s manager doesnâ€™t quite agree with this strategy and Billyâ€™s job is on the line.
