Are Winning Streaks Always Bound to End?

Once, when Billy Beane used “Sabermetrics” to pick a winning Oakland A’s team, he employed a method no other team was using. Now Beane calls the whiteboard he used, to assess the “Moneyball” numbers, “more of a time capsule” instead of “a board to use anymore.”

Does Beane’s observation mean that his special plan for success only works when others haven’t figured-out how to use the same system?  Explain your answer.

Does Beane’s observation perhaps have another meaning - that the system which he used wasn’t the reason for the team’s success? Explain your answer.

What do you think explains the success of the Oakland A’s during the 2002 regular season?
