When I first heard this, I was disappointed that Delorme wasn't fired. Now, after thinking about it, I'm happy that at least 2 of our scouts from regions where we haven't had success are gone. With the addition of Payne last year I feel we are in a much better position than 2 years ago.
Our US scouting isn't amazing but isn't terrible either.
I'll admit, I'm not sure who's responsible for all of the picks made from the US, but I'm pretty happy with the scouting that's been done there. Umberger (not the scouts fault we pissed him away), Kesler, Schneider and Bieksa were all drafted from the US. 3 of them were 1st rounders, but they are all solid players. The only pick in the top 100 since 2000 who hasn't turned out/isn't progressing would be Brett Skinner.
