Book Report :) Moneyball

Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game – Michael Lewis
I don’t know where to begin with this book; Billy Beane as an athletic freak or as a baseball genius. Moneyball gives an intimate look into the clubhouse and the front office at the trade deadline, both are always a plus. Takes you for a ride by showing how scouting translates from numbers on a page to numbers on the field and introduces the reader to the wondrous Nick Swisher, Jeremy Brown and The Greek God of Walks, Kevin Youkilis. Moneyball shows that baseball can be more than swing and miss, it’s don’t swing and walk. A must read for all those who wonder how teams can compete against the open check books of large market teams. A must read all together.

On a scale of One to Five Baseballs: FIVE BASEBALLS
