Will Beane stick around?
Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane just signed a contract which will keep him heading up the team until at least 2019, and he's not showing any signs of slowing down.
Is Beane still an asset?
Beane's star has dimmed somewhat since his glory days introducing sabermetric thought into the MLB mainstream, but is he simply still a great GM hamstrung by his own success?
Did you see Beane on the big screen?
We have to imagine Beane was happy with the actor they chose to portray him in the movie adaptation of "Moneyball," the book which made Beane and his ideas famous.
General managers in baseball can stick around for a good long while, or they can come and go like the seasons. Billy Beane's latest contract will keep him in Oakland until 2019, but he's one of the lucky ones; several teams changed leadership in the 2011 offseason, hoping to strike management gold.
