La Russa Gives "Moneyball" Two Thumbs Down

5

"I was offended because of what the book represented ... I knew a few of those guys as scouts. It strains the credibility a little bit. They won 20 in a row, qualify for the playoffs, go two up on the Yankees, and there wasn't anything in the movie except a brief [mention] about Miguel [Tejada] and Eric [Chavez], the three starters and [closer] Billy Koch. It was about a couple of trades and turning Scott [Hatteberg] into a first baseman. That club was carried by those guys that were signed and developed the old-fashioned way ... It's a nice story, but it isn't accurate enough." From Big League Stew
