Predicting blast embryo success

Interesting article from the BBC where Stanford researchers have developed a way to predict with greater accuracy which embryo's will be successful. In particular, this quote stood out to me:

"We've always thought of embryos as living or dying, but in reality we find that each cell in the embryo is making decisions autonomously."

So in theory, I should be able to have them choose the embryo that will feature a left handed kid with a plus fastball and wicked slider, right? I'm so doing a blast round again. Someone notify my wife...
