Mark Mulder watches ‘Moneyball’ for first time, adds great commentary

Mark MulderFormer Oakland A’s all-star pitcher Mark Mulder on Wednesday watched “Moneyball” the movie for the first time, and he decided to add some amazing insight via Twitter.

Mulder, who went 81-42 over five seasons with the A’s, has expressed some skepticism over the movie in the past. Apparently Tim Hudson couldn’t believe that he hadn’t seen it, so he decided to watch finally and share his opinions.

The result was some fantastic running commentary. Below are his tweets:

This tweet was in reference to David Justice being upset in the movie about having to pay for sodas in the A’s locker room. Mulder says that was false.

This tweet was in response to Jonah Hill’s character in the movie sitting on a flight with the team.

This was in response to the scene in the movie where Jeremy Giambi turns up some music in the clubhouse after a loss, royally upsetting Billy Beane/Brad Pitt:

Mulder then gets nostalgic on us:

This was a bad memory for Mulder. He took the loss in the deciding game of the ALDS, which the A’s lost to the Twins 5-4.

What were Mulder’s overall thoughts on the flick?

He also wanted to add this in:

Awesome stuff from Mulder. Sure, they did embellish, but it was a very enjoyable movie.

Here was my review of the film after watching it two years ago.
