Well What Do Ya Know... Oakland & Moneyball....


Recommended Posts

I don't know if Billy Beane still uses the moneyball approach but it sure seems like it.  Oakland third in .OBP in AL @ .333.  Arte and Dip need to see... Pulling in non homegrown stars ain't what it's cracked up to be...

 

Payroll:

 

Los Angeles Angels $127,896,250

 

Oakland Athletics $60,372,500

 

Who is putting the better product out there every night?

Imagine how the A'ths would do if Wulff spent the money that he has in plenty, within reason.

He is actually increasing payroll though, now that they've hit $60 million for maybe the first time in franchise history.

 

You can bet they will never, eeeever sign hacking over 30s to big contracts.

Their payroll was above $60MM as recent as 2011. It was $80MM in 2007.

I do stand corrected, it seemed like it would have been a lot less given the controversy over it back around 2011, but surprisingly it's stayed between $50-60 million since 2009.

 

Wulff's acquisitions have just been a lot smarter since 2011.

He still looks like a Steinbrenner, next to Loria.
