Clayton cannot hit, and doesn't have the range to play a decent SS anymore. How does he keep getting work?

I don't know,but a pretty sweet deal having a chance to make it on to a world series contending team.

Royce Clayton is only 37 years old? I thought that fossil had to be at least 40 years old by now. Good luck to the Red Sox and what they may be able to get out of Clayton.

Maybe they'll just use him as a late inning defensive replacement in September.
