The only thing I didn't like about the movie was the complete lack of coverage on the ALDS series against Minnesota. This is probably because I'm from Minnesota and that was one of the most memorable series' of all-time for me, but it was a pretty incredible series. coming down to the last out in game 5 (5 game series).
Also, I didn't like all the insinuation that Scott Hatteberg and Chad Bradford played such huge roles in their success. but Tejada, Chavez, and Dye get no love for their offense. and, somehow, Zito-Hudson-Mulder is not even mentioned..
but, good movie, nonetheless.
The on-field action was boring. I didn't want more; I wanted less. They spent way too long on the A's winning streak as if it was the equivalent of winning the world series. Sabermetricians don't care about winning streaks.
The book didn't give much credit to zito-hudson-mulder or Dye. It railed about how horrible Tejada was. So the movie stayed true in that respect. Chavez did get a lot of props in the book as I recall.
