Moneyball Applied

A few years ago I read Moneyball by Michael Lewis. It was a great book on how the Oakland A's have become so competitive despite the fact that they spend so much less than most other teams. It was fascinating enough to make me almost like the A's - but such things are not allowed when they're in your league, let alone division (and they beat your team 17 times out of 19 last season). But here's a link to why Billy Beane and the A's stay competitive even when the Mariners spend twice the money for lesser results.
