The great part of this book is how a baseball team works. It points out that, when our resources are not as abundant as others, we have to play smart games. Since tt is impossible to compete with rich teams in their ways, we have to find ours. And the last thing is -- I don't believe that Billy Beane really thinks the role of pitchers is not as important as hitters. Is this his trick to coax those rich guys into putting less attention to potential pitchers?
