A Comical ‘Moneyball’ Meme That Began On Baseball Twitter Has Evolved And Is Taking Over Social Media

A Moneyball Meme That Began On Baseball Twitter Has Now Evolved

Sony Pictures Entertainment

A hilarious Moneyball meme that got started on baseball Twitter has evolved and is now being used for other sports like hockey, basketball and football.

For those unfamiliar, the film Moneyball is based on the book by the same name written by Michael Lewis.

It tells the story of Billy Beane (played by Brad Pitt in the film), the general manager of the Oakland A’s, who works with Ivy League graduate Peter Brand (played by Jonah Hill), to find undervalued players using statistical analysis and turn the small market Athletics into World Series contenders on a very tight budget.

In the film, there is a scene where Jonah Hill, as Brand, explains to Brad Pitt, as Beane, using his big white board of statistic computations, what he believes are the actual value of several players the A’s are considering acquiring.

The line in the scene that is now being used for this ever-growing meme goes like this: “Billy, this is Chad Bradford. He’s a relief pitcher. He is one of the most undervalued players in baseball. His defect is that he throws funny.”

A scene from the 2011 film Moneyball has gained new life as a funny meme in 2022

Now, for some completely unexplainable reason, despite Moneyball coming out in 2011, this very specific scene is back and being used as a meme to describe any number of not only baseball players, but basketball, hockey and football players as well. God love the internet.

Pretty funny, right? Well, the Moneyball meme is now bleeding into other sports and pop culture references.

There really is no limit to what it can be used for, as you can see.
