Grady Fuson:
Billy, can we talk?

Billy Beane:
Yeah.

Billy Beane:
You're unhappy Grady. Why

Grady Fuson:
Wow. May I speak candidly?

Billy Beane:
Sure. Go right ahead.

Grady Fuson:
Major League Baseball and its fans...they're gonna be more than happy to throw you and Google boy under the bus if you keep doing what you're doing. You don't put a team together with a computer.

Billy Beane:
No?

Grady Fuson:
No. Baseball isn't just numbers. It's not science. If it was anybody could do what we do, but they can't cause they don't know what we know. They don't have our experience and they don't have our intuition.

Billy Beane:
[dismissively] Ok.

Grady Fuson:
Billy, you got a kid in there that's got a degree in Economics from Yale. You got a scout here with 29 years of baseball experience. You're listening to the wrong one. Now there are intangibles that only baseball people understand. You're discarding what scouts have done for 150 years, even yourself?

Billy Beane:
Adapt or die.

Grady Fuson:
This is about you and your shit, isn't it? 20 years ago some scout got it wrong. Now you're gonna declare war on the whole system.

Billy Beane:
Whoa! Ok! Ok! Ok! Ok! My turn. You don't have a crystal ball. You can't look at a kid and predict his future any more than I can. I've sat at those tables and listened to you tell those parents "When I know, I know. And when it comes to your son. I know." And you don't. You don't.

Grady Fuson:
[sighs] Ok. I don't give a shit about friendships, this situation or the past. Major League Baseball thinks they way I do. You're not gonna win. And I'll give you a nickel's worth of advice, you're never gonna get another job when Schott fires you after this catastrophic season you're about to set us all up for. And you're gonna have to explain to your kid why you're working at Dick's Sporting Goods.

Billy Beane:
I'm not gonna fire you, Grady.

Grady Fuson:
F*** you, Billy.

Billy Beane:
Now I will.
