Well this seems rather enjoyable. I really hope this thing ends up seeing the light of day, I think with guys like Zallian and Soderbergh (not to mention Pitt who is incredibly underrated as a character actor) behind it it has real potential.

Maybe not potential to make any sort of profit, but potential to be better than "For Love of the Game"

Wouldn't this be better as a documentary. I can't imagine how you make this topic compelling to non-hardcore baseball fans.

william maybe that's why they put it into turnaround...

[3] Didn't FOX just pick it up?

This is way off topic, but here's some valuable info about Tex's seemingly bad rating so far by UZR:

"Keith Law - SN: UZR is not reliable in samples this small, according to the guy who invented the metric."

[2] Yeah, I don't get it either but then again I didn't read it. But in principle, I don't find it very compelling.

I felt the same way about "Fast Food Nation" .... loved the book, HATED the movie ... because it didn't work as a NON-documentary.

[4] Hey, that's more or less what I said!

In fact, to see how variable UZR is, look at his Fangraphs chart. Note that even his range, disparaged in that earlier article, is above average for his career, though sub-par for several years. It's very implausible that his actual fielding ability and production varies as much as the UZR does. A lot of UZR must be a matter of luck.
