Where are Moneyball's major players
Where are Moneyball's major players, Billy Beane is a former MLB outfielder who played for the A's, Tigers, Twins and Mets. Beane's most valuable contribution to baseball isn't as a player, but as a GM and talent evaluator. As GM of the A's, Beane gained notoriety for his use of baseball metrics to build the team's roster.
