I Don't Know Where to Begin

Brad Pitt and his Ocean's Eleven director Steven Soderbergh are set to reteam for a movie adaptation of Michael Lewis' bestselling book Moneyball: The Art Of Winning An Unfair Game. Soderbergh is in talks to direct the film, in which Pitt is slated to star as Oakland Athletics baseball coach Billy Beane.

Lewis' book chronicles the complicated computer analysis system Beane used to create a team that regularly contended for baseball's World Series.
Umm, last time I checked Beane was the general manager of the A's, not a baseball coach. And zero pennants since 1991 suggests Oakland has not "regularly contended" for the World Series since the Bash Brother days.

As for the impending movie, let's hope it turns out well. But considering these two teamed up for the Ocean's Eleven remake I'm assuming it'll be horrible.
