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

    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.

    I bet the Yankees signed him and told him to report to the Red Sox.
