Paul DePodesta, a Billy Beane acolyte prominently featured in Moneyball, was fired as GM of the Dodgers, I think unfairly given the number of injuries the team suffered and that they made the playoffs just a year ago. Give the guy more than two years! It'll be interesting to see how other Moneyballers fare in the next few years. Will it be the "fad" wears off, or does every team has a good stats guy in the front office, making the market inefficiency disappear?
