America's greatest pastime may exist in an aura of nostalgia about warm summer evenings at the ball park, with a hot dog, the smell of fresh grass and that unique sound of a ball hitting a bat.

We're not sure what the wisdom is of a studio releasing any major marketing material if they're not at Comic-Con -- they're bound to get ignored -- but that said, those who will be buying tickets for "Moneyball" probably don't care about whatever is happening in San Diego anyway.

For instance, take Mychael Danna.
