The movie, in fact, could easily be seen as a response to the "Moneyball" film, in much the same way that the very good book, "The Beauty of Short Hops" by Sheldon and Alan Hirsch, was a response to the "Moneyball" book (and film).
In "Trouble," Gus is having vision problems and needs the help of his lawyer daughter to scout a hot prospect. Despite (or perhaps because) Gus wasn't around for most of her life she risks her career to help him hang onto his. A love interest for her in the form of a young scout for the Red Sox (played by Justin Timberlake, who does a very nice job) is an admirer of her father and his legendary scouting skills. All of their conflicts and confusion revolve around the question of whether the hot prospect is as terrific as the stats say he is, or is there a weakness in his game that the stats can't perceive? Only Gus knows. Of course.
The movie mostly succeeded for me until the end, when a -very- unlikely hidden pitching prospect shows up and, in amazingly short order, saves the day for all concerned. Ultimately there's an essential dishonesty in that ending that I found disturbing and laughable all at once. For me, it ruins the film.
