We have Brad Pitt, you have Murray Chass

Updates on casting and locations for the upcoming Moneyball movie, directed by Steven Soderbergh:

“Anybody who is not actively playing who was on the 2002 team has been approached,” he said. “We’ve got about 60 percent of them. We have [manager] Art Howe, we’ve got Rick Peterson, the pitching coach. We’ve got three-quarters of the scouts who were there. … The guys on the team we can’t get — we’re casting real people who can play and perform. We’ll have the real footage and then we’ll go to the close-up with our guy in it, and it should be seamless,” the director explained.

They’re also re-creating the Oakland Coliseum interior on a soundstage. Shooting begins in six weeks.

Also, there’s a new poll to go along with the Moorad discussion from Wednesday.

The great showdown: who is your preferred Padres President / CEO?

  • Jeff Moorad (63%, 10 Votes)
  • Sandy Alderson (37%, 6 Votes)

Total Voters: 16

    Its too soon to vote, because Moorad hasn’t done a thing yet.

    As for the Moneyball flick. I think it hilarious that 60% of them are out of the MLB, only a few seasons later.


    • No cop outs. If you had to pick between Sandy, and what you already know about Jeff, who would it be?

      You’re allowed to change your mind later, but this poll is about first impressions.

    Can’t get the poll to accept my answer and can’t see the results. What’s up?

    Doesn’t work for me…
