Mark Mulder watches Moneyball for the first time, and live-tweets it


Mark Mulder lived Moneyball. But until Wednesday night he had never seen the Oscar-winning movie based on the book based on the experiences of the Oakland A’s under nerd-genius GM Billy Beane.

Mulder decided to finally rectify that situation, and he shared the experience with everyone via Twitter. The former pitcher had some interesting things to say about certain inaccuracies in the movie. He also had praise for one of the characters who came off as a bit of a villain.

BTW, Art Howe isn’t dead. Mulder kind of talks about him like he’s dead, but it’s Philip Seymour Hoffman who’s dead. I guess Mulder got the real guy mixed up with the actor. It happens.
