Moneyball is a term describing baseball operations in which a team endeavors to analyze the market for baseball players and buy what is undervalued and sell what is overvalued. Unlike a common misconception, it is not about OBP, but whatever is undervalued at that time. It is most commonly used to refer to the strategy used by the front office of the Oakland Athletics. It derives its name from a Michael Lewis book of the same name.
Through their strategy of Moneyball, the Oakland Athletics have been amoung the top contenders in baseball, at least up to this season.

A book written by Billy Beane, er, Michael Lewis about the 2002 Oakland A's and their quest to reach the playoffs. It discounts some baseball fallacies (i.e. a player can be judged by physical talent alone) and explores the methods of rating players. Thus, teams with little money (such as the A's) can find out who the best available players are and acquire them.
Moneyball describes the importance of statistics such as On-Base Percentage and Slugging Percentage.
