9/23 Moneyball

Mike Quade was Oakland’s first base coach from 2000-02, and the Cubs manager admits he’s interested in seeing the new movie “Moneyball,” based on the book by Michael Lewis, who followed the Athletics in 2001.

“I’d be less than honest if I didn’t say I was a little curious,” Quade said. “I know enough people who are planning to see it and see it soon and people I respect. I’ll get a feel from them.

“I’m a rental guy — I’ll wait until the DVD comes out,” he said. “That way, if I don’t care for it, I can just turn it off.”

Since Quade was there, he’s eager to see what liberties were taken.

“Curiousity will get the best of me, so I’ll probably see it,” he said.
