lol if you guys are using the red sox, or other teams who spend a ton of money as examples of money ball, then you obviously have not read or the book or do not understand it.

the point of it is teams with limited resources taking advantage of undervalued assets/players. all the red sox did was spend alot of money, there was nothing they did that took advantage of undervalued skillsets. at that time OBP, one stat Billy Beane found that was fundamental to scoring runs, and also highly undervalued, was becoming highly valued. there was nothing cutting edge about what they did
