Moneyball

One that im looking forward too : The story of Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane’s successful attempt to put together a baseball club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to draft his players.

I am looking forward to this one, its based on the book Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game ;

What is it about?

Moneyball is a quest for the secret of success in baseball. Following the low-budget Oakland Athletics, their larger-than-life general manger, Billy Beane, and the strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts, Michael Lewis has written not only “the single most influential baseball book ever” (Rob Neyer, Slate) but also what “may be the best book ever written on business” (Weekly Standard).

I wrote this book because I fell in love with a story. The story concerned a small group of undervalued professional baseball players and executives, many of whom had been rejected as unfit for the big leagues, who had turned themselves into one of the most successful franchises in Major League Baseball. But the idea for the book came well before I had good reason to write it—before I had a story to fall in love with. It began, really, with an innocent question: how did one of the poorest teams in baseball, the Oakland Athletics, win so many games?

Andrew Garcia : American Idol 9?

American Idol is into the Hollywood week now. After watching 2 performances by Andrew Garcia im confident that he will be the next American Idol!

He reminds me of last years runners up Adam Lambert minus the over the top showmanship.

During the Hollywood week, Andrew Garcia performed his own rendition of “Straight Up” which was brilliant in my view. Im predicting he goes far when the season proper starts and even tipping him to win it!
