J.J. Stankevitz:

Hawk Harrelson argued on Saturday that Moneyball was a “fraud” and tore into Billy Beane as a general manager, rhetorically asking how many playoff games those sabermetrically-oriented teams ever won. Hawk further dismissed the book and movie, saying he’s neither seen or read the work, but doesn’t need to because, as he puts it, it’s a bunch of BS.

But on Sunday, assistant general manager Rick Hahn lauded Moneyball, saying he “enjoyed the book very much” as a learning tool. He added that it offered a good insight into how teams find market inefficiencies and run a business. Although, for Hahn, the movie had some inaccuracies, namely in how it didn’t mention the A’s stout pitching staff from the year.

Good thing Hawk is only an announcer and Hahn is the Assistant GM. Hopefully Hahn is the next Sox GM.
