Maybe he's way more computer literate than Correa's boys.

i read the article about the hiring, and the one posted re: his business....but wtf qualifications does he have to oversee the draft??
What qualifications do you think Jeff Luhnow had?
well Luhnow worked for us for 2 years as the Vice President of Baseball Development where he established a baseball academy in the Dominican Republic and extended the Cardinals' scouting in Venezuela, before he was promoted to the position and he oversaw the draft....so, that.

Luhnow oversaw his first draft with the Cardinals within the same calendar year he was hired.

Flores is only 1 year older than Choate...If Choate goes down, Flores may pull a "Roger Dorn" and get Mo to activate himself

He certainly can't be worse than Choate is at this point.

Maybe we're planning on tanking the next draft and need a pasty.

no...

he started working for us in 2003.

his first draft was 2005.

Luhnow, 45, has been a Vice President with the St Louis Cardinals since 2003
He has overseen the Cardinals amateur draft since 2005, and his drafts have been widely recognized as among the most productive across baseball. His first three drafts, from 2005-2007, have produced 24 Major League players, which is more than any other Major League team in that time frame.

Everything I've ever read said Luhnow's first draft was in 2004. At any rate, he was not some established superstar when the Cardinals hired him. He began building the infrastructure for whats in place now. Flores is a former player, assistant coach and as of last year, started a scouting technology firm. He's not exactly a baseball novice.
