Brad Pitt in Moneyball

There are rumblings that Michael Lewis’ book about using undervalued resources to your advantage is going to be made into a movie, possibly starring Brad Pitt. No word yet on whether he’ll play Kevin Youkilis, Nick Swisher, Chad Bradford, Mark Teahen, or Billy Beane.

Incidentally, Nick Swisher, the 1st pick of the A’s the year Michael Lewis spent in Oakland, at 16th, was picked one pick after Scott Kazmir and one pick before Cole Hamels, 2 picks ridiculed in the book. The picks were ridiculed because Kazmir and Hamels were high school pitchers, though, judging by this year’s World Series, I’d say they worked out OK.
