The Moneyball star is apparently retiring from baseball. (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/02/16/SPC6V3GEM.DTL)

I like this quote.

"He was a pretty shy kid, and all of a sudden he's become nationally known," Beane said of Brown. "You can typically hide in the minor leagues for a couple of years, but he was pretty much known as soon as he hit A ball."

And whose fault was that, again? I don't think it was Brown who chose to hype himself up.

Billy's homeboy didn't turn out I guess...guys like Swisher and Blanton did turn out great from that book.
