Billy Beane didn't have to do a Billy Beane for fame and adulation in the Bay Area and national sporting media--he already has a movie among his credentials.
But a movie and Brad Pitt is one thing and a World Series is another.
With the A's picking up two prized starting pitchers to an already heady pitching staff, the move by Beane is not only the talk of the local sporting scene but indeed the entire nation.
Except on KNBR. I forgot.
So, I'm just thinking: say the A's go nuts--kick it up a notch and go to the post-season and win a World Series?
Moneyball 2 anyone?
