Washington wants to see 'Moneyball'
OAKLAND -- Rangers manager Ron Washington said he plans on seeing "Moneyball," the movie being made about Oakland general manager Billy Beane. The movie, starring Brad Pitt, is scheduled to premiere in late September.

The movie is based on the best-selling book, and Washington was with the Athletics during the time it was written. Washington's character appears briefly in the movie, although he is not listed in the credits by name.

"I'm certainly going to check it out," Washington said.

Washington did not read the book.

"I started it but never finished it," Washington said. "I'm going to finish it."

How far did he get?

"The first chapter," Washington said. "Then I got distracted ... by a lot of things."
