Yeah, brother, it's all about Billy Beane! Actually, yesterday's SF Chron had a column on the rumors surrounding Moneyball man, and the Bay's gripping right about now!

I swear I'm gonna stick a needle in my good eye if the Dodgers get Beane the very year that I move to Boston! The Man Upstairs knows how much I've longed to rid our team of Alex Cora and his 200 feeble groundballs to second, and it'll just eat me up to be outside LA if/when they finally make the playoffs.

A's fan speaking with authority: Don't you think there may be just a little luck involved in what Beane has done in Oakland? I mean, the A's drafted great pitchers out of college (one out of high school) for years before the current crop of aces and they ALL came down with injuries or crashed and burned with lack of ability.

ON THE OTHER HAND: he does seem to have a knack for putting together teams that can make the playoffs. With actual money to work with he may be able to actually shepherd a team beyond the first round...
