[LEWIS - says baseball has teams with different money to spend so he analyzed the Oakland Athletics, led by general manager Billy Beane, who has made the team a success while spending less; describes Beane as a "Wall Street" trader type who had the confidence to act because he was meant to become an all-star baseball player, but never succeeded & built his team out of players who are the opposite of himself as a player; suggests Oakland's abilities to find hidden values in players has already spread to other teams now mimicking the A's.]
