Billy's got this.
Samardzija to the white sox. Hammels already signed with the Cubs, Moss was traded, Donaldson...what is Billy Beane doing

Michael Lewis is a fine writer and Billy Beane is a man of genius. This book...
“Billy Beane says he plans on Jeff Samardzija being ace of staff next year” thank god
lol I wish but if you do the research it's definitely easier, why Billy Beane has so much success, eats &sleeps it

The one thing that is always constant, Billy Beane is working on something. When it actually comes to fruition is the mystery.
Report: Lester, Giants to meet next week The Giants are turning their attention to Jon Lester following Pablo Sandoval's departure. The free agent pitcher has plans to meet with the World Series champions next week, a person with knowledge of the meeting said Tuesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because there was no authorization to publicly disclose the meeting. San Francisco has need for a front-line starting pitcher and was expected to get busy in the free agent market after losing the slugging third baseman to the Boston Red Sox. Lester would join World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner to give the Giants two top left-handers at the top of their rotation. Lester, who turns 31 in January, was dealt by the Red Sox to the Oakland Athletics at the trade deadline in July and helped the A's reach the playoffs for the third straight year before a 9-8, 12-inning loss to Kansas City in the AL wild-card game. Oakland general manager Billy Beane said after the season he didn't think his club would have ...
I wouldn't count on billy beane trading Donaldson.
If Lester leaves the A's Billy Beane had one of the worst years ever for a GM.
Mark Few and Billy Beane have something in common. Small sample size of post-season obscures sustained success.
I remember when no-one wanted Chris Pratt, that was until Billy Beane picked him up for the A's...
I don't see Billy Beane trading Shark. Esp. If we sign Lester which would mean we killed him on the trade
If anyone can take us past the first round, it's Barry zito. Billy Beane is gonna break the bank for that guy
If Lester comes back, I just kill myself if I'm Billy Beane. What an atrocious trade.
it's like first base from Billy Beane in the Moneyball movie
