"Moneyball" Theory Finds Support

Outside the Beltway has an article that appeals to people who read Michael Lewis's excellent book, Moneyball. Moneyball Confirmed says that two economists agree (now there's a headline in and of itself) Mr. Lewis got it right, the on base percentage of a player is a key statistic. For Oakland A's fans (like me) it just adds arrows to my baseball arguing quiver.

Now, will the new Washington, DC franchise pay attention or will they follow the normal path of paying way too much for "sluggers?"
