Sears goes “Moneyball”

The question is, can Scott Hatteberg sell Kenmores?

Sears Holdings Corp. is reaching into world of “Moneyball” for guidance as the retailer tries to turn around its struggling business. The operator of Sears and Kmart stores said Thursday that Paul DePodesta, vice president of player development and amateur scouting for the New York Mets, has been elected to its board.

Bill Plaschke and T.J. Simers are already prepared to blame DePodesta when Sears eventually goes out of business.

I dunno. Maybe they’ll rebound, but Sears and sh– still won’t work in the playoffs.
