NO MOVIE PLANS: The CHICAGO TRIBUNE's Sullivan noted Epstein "hasn't seen 'Moneyball' and isn't interested in getting it on Netflix." In fact, Epstein "still seemed peeved that inside information was released in the book." He said Saturday, "I think 'Moneyball' has become kind of a loaded term. 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 (in the best-selling book). Instead of a handful of clubs knowing certain things, within a year [or] 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" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 2/19).
