The “Moneyball” hype is starting up again as the film’s release approaches. Brad Pitt stars as Billy Beane at the head of a strong lineup that includes Jonah Hill and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

It’s a power trio, for sure, but I have one question. Why doesn’t Hoffman speak in the trailer?

Anyway, knowing what you know about the A’s history of the past decade, the run of top-notch pitching and the frequent playoff appearances under Art Howe (Hoffman), are you going to fork over your cash?
