Le Stratège

Voici l’histoire vraie de Billy Beane, un ancien joueur de baseball prometteur qui, à défaut d’avoir réussi sur le terrain, décida de tenter sa chance en dirigeant une équipe comme personne ne l’avait fait auparavant…

Alors que la saison 2002 se profile, Billy Beane, le manager général des Oakland Athletics, est confronté à une situation difficile : sa petite équipe a encore perdu ses meilleurs joueurs, attirés par les grands clubs et leurs gros salaires. Bien décidé à gagner malgré tout, il cherche des solutions qui ne coûtent rien et auxquelles personne n’aurait pensé avant… Il va s’appuyer sur des théories statistiques et engager Peter Brand, un économiste amateur de chiffres issu de Yale. Ensemble, contre tous les principes, ils reconsidèrent la valeur de chaque joueur sur la base des statistiques et réunissent une brochette de laissés-pour-compte oubliés par l’establishment du baseball. Trop bizarres, trop vieux, blessés ou posant trop de problèmes, tous ces joueurs ont en commun des capacités sous-évaluées. Avec leurs méthodes et leur équipe de bras cassés, Beane et Brand s’attirent les moqueries et l’hostilité de la vieille garde, des médias et des fans, jusqu’à ce que les premiers résultats tombent… Sans le savoir, Beane est en train de révolutionner toute la pratique d’un des sports les plus populaires du monde.
