Watch the trailer for “Million Dollar Arm”

Dec 23, 2013, 1:34 PM EDT

This is the movie that is based — quite loosely, it appears, anyway — on the Rinku and Dinesh story.  I feel like it’ll be a good movie regardless of how close it hews to reality, though. For one thing Jon Hamm is cool. For another: the Curt Schilling cameo looks like it’ll be really, really short, minimizing the possible damage that may cause.

    Produced by Simmons, guest starring Schilling?

    Will take some time before I can consider this, even if it’s an interesting story.

      Let’s focus on the positives:

      John Hamm – Charter member of the BFIB
      Lake Bell – Coolest chick on the planet
      Bill Paxton – He’s the Chet
      Karl Ravech – Best wig in the biz

      And last but not least:

    I’m going out on a limb and guess the agent ends up with the neighbor and the two cricket players get signed with a major league club.

    Schilling is starting to resemble the mayor of Toronto

    This looks lie a cross between The Scout, The Air Up Their, and every Disney sports movie ever made.

    Another cheap shot at Schilling! You’re making even the most ardent of Yankee fans shake their heads.

    I do agree that Jon Hamm is really cool.

      Schitling deserves any cheap shot thrown at him, or rich shot for that matter. Wonder how many people he had to do … ahem … favors for to get the job at ESPN and the cameo?

    Good to know you have the tastes of a 12 year old.

    I’m dying to know if these fish-out-of-water persevere and overcome their obstacles and learn valuable life lessons.
    I personally thought Jon Hamm as Gerald McRaney in the remake of the intro to Simon & Simon was marvelous.

    My complaint around the original story is that these kids should have been on display for colleges and not professionals. Not going to make a living off of a few years of minor league ball when not drafted. A college education would have provided more of a future and an opportunity to develop baseball skills.

    I don’t know the full story, but if I mentioned something off then I apologize.

    Will the sequel be “Ten Cent Brain?”

    Jon Hamm is a ridiculously classically handsome man but he’s a crap ass actor. Mad Men sucks and is the most pretentious trash ever conceived, that people pretend they like so they sound cultured. Search your hearts, for you know this to be true!

    • bobwsc - Dec 23, 2013 at 8:32 PM

      could you repeat that?

    What’s even funnier is that some fans actually thought Rinku and Apoo were legitimate prospects.
