The 2011 film "Moneyball" is up for six Academy Awards later this month, including best actor for Brad Pitt and best motion picture of the year -- but Cubs general manager Theo Epstein says he's not a fan.
"I think 'Moneyball' has become kind of a loaded term," Epstein told the Chicago Tribune today. "That's not exactly what we do. We're just kind of trying to teach the game the right way. I wasn't a huge fan when certain proprietary information was made available to the public in the first place.
"Instead of a handfiul of clubs knowing certain things, within a year a two, 30 clubs knew it. It's not my cup of tea. I think it's great that is sounds like they made a really good movie and a lot of people got entertained. That's terrific. But it's baseball time, not movie time."
