Soderbergh's 'Moneyball' Headed to the Bench?

Even Brad Pitt and Steven Soderbergh can't save this one. Maybe they should call Dennis Eckersley. The movie rendition of Michael Lewis' book "Moneyball," about Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane, may be headed to the bench. Movie studios are balking at the pricey budget and minimal mass appeal. After all, it's the A's, not the Yankees. Then again, anything with Brad Pitt gets our attention and this has the potential to be one of the better baseball movies. Bummer.

You can thank Daddy Warbucks, err, investment banker and diehard bluegrass fan Warren Hellman for that.

Here's the partial lineup:
