Storyline

A visit by a Springfield Elementary alum-turned-Ivy-League student pushes Lisa to question her own go-getter attitude and reevaluate the scope of her extracurricular activities. Convinced that there is no such thing as having too many clubs or activities listed on her resume, Lisa jumps at the opportunity to coach Bart's little league team. Despite having little understanding of baseball, Lisa coaches the team to a record winning streak by putting her book smarts in statistics and probability into play. But when Bart questions Lisa's coaching tactics and confronts her for taking the fun out of baseball, Lisa benches him from the championship game. Hoping to lift his spirits, Marge spends the day with Bart at an amusement park where MLB manager and former catcher Mike Scioscia gives Bart sound advice and reminds him of his genuine love of the sport. Meanwhile, with one last chance to win the game, Lisa makes an unexpected call and learns that there is more to sports than winning. Written by Fox Publicity

Quotes

Lisa Simpson: I was wondering if you and your friends could tell me about baseball strategy.
Moe Szyslak: The only thing I know about strategy is that everything the manager does is crap. Unless it works, in which case he's a button pusher.
Lenny: I hate people who just push buttons all day.
Carl: You just push buttons all day.

Good episode and a lot of people are exaggerating over Bankskys opening,
29 October 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

MoneyBart is a great Simpsons episode and its a good example for sibling rivalry,I also think that everyone is exaggerating over Bankskys opening couch gag in the sweat shop,its just a cartoon people.

When Lisa meets a past pupil of Springfield Elementary who is the only person to attend that school that got into Yale,Principal Skinner assumes that the reason she got into Yale was because of all the clubs she was in so Lisa does the same thing,but her and Bart get into some sibling rivalry when she becomes the coach for Barts baseball team.

9/10
