    I'm an A's fan, so this is a given for me.

    The irony is the approach the movie is about has been abandoned in many respects now by Beane.

    Is the movie based on the A's from the early 90's? The McGwire, Canseco, Henderson A's?
    It certainly doesn't appear to be set in the time frame, but I figured it was based on it.

    Based on Billy Beane's tenure as GM in the early 2000's.
