Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane plays a different game than the rest of Major League Baseball. By ignoring traditional performance yardsticks (batting average is bupkes!), Beane has built one of MLB’s top teams with one of its smallest payrolls. Lewis (Liar’s Poker) takes an inside look at Beane’s operation, from a trading session worthy of a pickpocket to a draft-day scenario in which he baffles his peers by choosing lumpy catchers over sleek thoroughbreds. With much of baseball in financial chaos, Moneyball serves as a how-to for any ball club looking for that elusive combination of victory and solvency.
