More Moneyball hooray

Is this another in a long line of articles that completely fails to understand what Billy Beane and Moneyball are about? From an A's blog, no less?

The A's ranked 7th in OBP during the 2002 season and 8th in SLG, but fast-forward to 2011 and you'll find the A's ranking 29th in OBP and 28th in SLG.

Has Billy Beane lost his touch, or has Moneyball become irrelevant just like the A's? Now that everyone in the baseball world has read Moneyball, Oakland's unique approach towards finding cheaper and often undervalued players has been over-exposed.

I quote, you decide.
