    I read the book and even though it's not going to be a "spellbinder" I think the baseball fan in me is going to make me go to the movies and watch it.

    I can only think of two times that I have been to a movie theater in the last 25 years...

    I never go to the theatre either but I always forget about movies I want to see by the time they come out on video so I'm thinking I might go see this one cuz it's about baseball.

    I'm trying to figure out how they made a movie out of that book that does not twist the hell out of reality. Then again it is Hollywood - they have no basis for reality. I'll wait for the DVD release....

    Yeah, I'm curious about how they make a movie out of that book I was quite surprised when I heard about it. I don't think it's going to break any attendance records and I can hear people bitching about it being boring already but it's about BASEBALL(kinda)

    Well - about the business of baseball. I'm not sure how much of the actual game is in the movie.

    They'll probably throw in some game footagege but yeah it's about the way the A's do things and sabermetrics, the "all-powerful" on-base percentage and all that.

    And will no doubt neglect to mention the clock cleaning they endured on each trip to the playoffs during that era except for the 2006 series against the Twins. But hey - at least they made the playoffs.
