Joe Morgan (former ESPN Sunday Night Baseball announcer): Sunday Night Baseball didn’t launch until 1990, so I didn’t see all that much of Cleveland until they got some attention down the stretch in ‘89. I remember thinking how Charlie Donovan got a lot of mileage out of what he had. You know, for all the talk about Billy Beane and the guys he brought to Oakland by using computers and the stat guys, Charlie was probably the first general manager to identify those “value” players. I guess the only difference between Charlie and Billy is that Charlie never wrote a book about himself to tell everybody about it.

It was good, but I found myself spending more time pointing out flaws in the re-telling of the movie than anything else.
