0hsnappl3s : They're looking for good players and these scouts here saying shit like "the guy has a nice jawline" and "he's a good looking player." Shit cracks me up hahaha

Life Itself : 0:00 0:04 'I like guys who have some hair on their ass' Wtf

Max Marko : "If he's a good hitter why doesn't he hit good?"..... Perfect

keith ruddell : his girlfriend is a 6, at best

Jim Beam : I love all of the baseball cliches thrown around here. There is nothing scientific or professional about their analysis at all.

THE Sports Station : "Who's Fabio?" "He's the shortstop from Seattle."

Hello Moto : "if he's a good hitter, why doesn't he hit good?" Wow that quote hahaha

Kevin Torres : This is what many - not all - people sound like when considering a candidate for president. Relatively few focus on a candidate's policies or political philosophy and instead fixate on their intangibles.

Harried Potter : This scene illustrates the shift in paradigm. The scouts are relying on a system of sorting players of unknown potential  by phenotype, then hoping that professional training will develop superlative players. The general manager knows that the richer teams will skim off the cream of that process. What Billy  ends up doing is sifting through data for under appreciated diamonds in the rough after that player has developed a pool of statistics at the professional level.

ILUVBlogs1 : leicester city.

sr20DETdrift : "I like guys like that, that got a little hair on their ass..." What? lol

Christopher Johnson : "The ball *explodes* off his bat" is actually tapping into something that statistically we've just discovered the importance of (exit velocity).

nychold : "Who's Fabio?" "He's a shortstop." This says everything about the "wisdom" in the room. It's okay not to know something, or to ask and get clarification, but they make assumptions and pass it off as fact. That's why the A's were buried under 50 feet of crap.

Ryan Royce : I heard the "...50 ft. of crap..." line from a Friends episode once. Rachel said it, and it was long before this movie's script was written. Funny that Jennifer Aniston was married to Brad Pitt at the time that episode was aired.

dave4248 : "His girlfriend is a '6' at best" Yes, God forfend we have a guy on this team who can see a woman's inner beauty. That's a good reason to bypass him. Great science there.

YouCopyPoppy : "There are rich teams, and there are poor teams. Then there's 50 FEET OF CRAP.....and then there's us." Aaron Sorkin, you mad scientist of a writer.

rene hernandez : good ball film!!underrated!

Lt.Dan : he's got an ugly girlfriend lolol

Scallywag : We've always done it this way! I fucking hate that mentality....every time I hear that in the workplace I jump on that person. It is such a small minded mentality.

- Pancakes : "One of our guys, he can play, lot of pop coming off the bat, good jaw, ugly girlfriend means no confidence, he's got the looks" do scouts actually talk like this? sounds like they don't actually know anything.

Nozark : I love the acting in this movie! Especially from Brad Pitt!

UncleSamsCabin : 'His girlfriend is a 6 at best' ROFL

Hunter Golden : Pitt packing a lipper.

GetFuckedUTube1 : This group of guys is exactly how teams like the Cleveland Browns or Oakland Raiders sucked for 20 years...even with 15 first round draft picks. These guys would not know talent if it fell out of the sky and landed on them. They know nothing about "who can play."

Herv3 : in fairness, wouldn't this be the same guys that found Giambi, Dye and Foulk in the first place?

Mike M : I love the irony expressed in this scene. The one scout said "he drives it, it pops off the bat" but he has a hearing aid. How would he know that? It shows how full of shit these scouts are.

Anthony Lodge : I upgraded my girlfriend after watching this. Never made it to the bigs though

Nick Jasper : Yet the A's have NEVER won a championship using the "Moneyball" system. When you keep getting young inexpensive good players in trades and once they become great, you have to do the same thing over again and trade him because you can't afford him. It's a revolving door and it just doesn't work -- no matter how great the player's on base percentage is. It's a mix of young players and a couple of high priced players that will win you a championship.

Joe D : I just want the Yankees and their fans to admit that they benefit from an unfair system for once in my life.

LuxuryJesper : I think the problem with baseball is, that it's lacking tactics. I mean, what does a baseball coach even do? "Listen, you need to hit this ball" - "Listen, you need to catch that ball". It's way too simple and single-minded. Baseball is about you being good. If you're shit, you're going to lose. In football for instance, you're playing against an opponent. Which means, that you can change your tactic based on who you're playing against.

Pagan Pilgrim : Good Jaw

Ramon Salazar : "Who's Fabio? " "He's a shortstop, shortstop from Seattle" LMAO!!!

Pepe Sylvia : "whos fabio?" "hes a short stop"

Sanghamitra Ahirrao : "No that's just logic". Awesome line.

Matthew Rider : The ONE THING I can't stand about this film, is they try so damn hard to make it seem like the A's are some small market team, with an owner that can't afford players. First, the bay area is one of the LARGEST markets in the entire country. Yes... they have to share the market with the Giants, but there is enough money to go around, if the A's would actually care enough to TRY and win championships. The A's market is as big as they have the drive to be. The problem is, the owner is a cheapskate, who has shown fans he is not willing to sign his OWN superstars. Second, the owner's true profits don't come in cash flows, but the value of the franchise. That franchise is estimated to be worth over a BILLION by Forbes. The owner paid $180 million for it. So many people think a salary cap is the answer to "parity" in the league. There also needs to be a salary floor.

Roger Kincaid : 1:31

Mike West : Whos Fabio? Shortstop

joeriveracomedy : One book, one movie but ZERO Pennants. Where's the Giants movie?

Danny Ocean : @ 3:45 an old guy asks "who's Fabio?" now, another old guy says "he's a short stop from Seattle" lmaooo

David Gee : Now guys, we should all know that in real life the conversation was probably a lot different than this, although hopefully someone did make make the "hair on his ass" comment LOL.

Tony Anello : I like guys like that, with a little hair on their ass

Jupiter-Jesus : "That sounds like fortune cookie talk to me Billy" lol after they had just been spouting those BS sports platitudes for the last five minutes.

D LG : I forgot how much I enjoyed this movie and I'm not a baseball fan. It was just a well acted movie with great dialog.

al d : Its not unfair. The Oakland owner is cheap. Spend the 35% in revenue sharing on decent players instead of putting it in your pocket.

b miller : His girlfriend is a 6 at best

Ian Robinson : Brad Pitt was so damn good in this movie,for me it may be his best performance. Should have won best actor oscar

Ali Gh : 5 fabios have seen this video.

Happy Being Miserable : Locker room talk as Trump would call it

Kelly KitKat : The poor cannot afford to do without quality. But how many understand this? Only the rich can afford disposable. "Plenty more where that came from".

Blinky Pinky Inky and Clyde : Bunch of latent homos
