I would have been very curious to see what Flahr would have done with our pick the year before he came on. Or maybe i don't want to know.
Yeah, I didn't mean for it to sound so draconian, but I meant that he's the one who makes the actual decision on the selection (after taking input from the rest of the scouting department, management staff, and coaching staff). If he were so inclined, he could yell "Screw you guys, I'm picking [player x]" and that would be our selection. Obviously, he takes the input of the scouting staff extremely seriously.
