I canâ€™t imagine how often Billy Beane has been asked/ribbed/pestered on the fact that Brad Pitt will be portraying him in the movie version of Moneyball, but MLB Network had some fun on the topic when the Aâ€™s general manager appeared on the networkâ€™s Hot Stove segment, which has been airing daily from the winter meetings.
Beane talked about the difficulties last season, as well as the challenges of being a low revenue maker in the Oakland market. I talked to Beane after the segment (happy to know he reads us) and has agreed to an interview on The Biz of Baseball shortly.
