Deric Ladnier fired as Scouting Director

JJ Picollo will be Ladnier's replacement.  I'm curious about this on many levels.  I know Ladnier has been responsible for Draft scouting and scouting on many levels since 2000.  I do not know what his supposed specialties were, but I'm guessing it was not evaluating hitters.  Does anyone have any specific information about his specific signings, recommendations, or scouting opportunities?  What are Piccolo's specialties and strengths?  Hopefully this is a sign for future overhaul within the Royals scouting ranks.  Lord knows we need all the help we can get.
