The current issue of Baseball America spotlights the major league GMS and there's a feature article in there on Billy Beane and his "new school" way of GMing.

Unfortuately, the Baseball America web site is a subsciber-site, so there's no link. Read it the old fashion way, in print.





"The best reason for committing loathsome & detestable acts -and let's face it, I am considerably something of an expert in the field - is purely for their own sake. Monetary gain is all very well, but it dilutes the tastes of wickedness to a lower level that is obtainable by anyone will an overdeveloped sense of avarice. True and baseless evil is as rare as the purest good - and we all know how rare THAT is." - Acheron Hades, THE EYRE AFFAIR by Jaspar Fforde

Thanks for the heads up. Billy Beane lived here for ever while in the minor leagues, so he is on the local ESPN radio affiliate with the former GM of the team all the time. He always seems like a heck of guy. I'm glad he is doing well.

... I'd round out your starting rotation with a lefty -- Babe Ruth. "What's sad is that between Yaz, Teddy Ballgame, and Jim Rice, none of them could field well enough that you'd trust them to move to right, let alone center." ...
