Again, I'm not necessarily advocating FOR Cohen...I just think it's silly to hate on him before he's done anything.
I'm not buying this. A GM has to rely on his scouting department. Its foolish to think that the scouts said one thing and Tannenbaum decided to go in a completely different direction. Sure they may have not agreed 100% of the time but overall they were in it together.
