... of Babe being gone??

Durham dropped to sixth in the order Saturday, but whether Manuel is trying to light a fire or really will bench his second baseman isn't known. With three unproven starters in the rotation, the Sox may not be able to spare Royce Clayton's Velcro glove at short, and Jose Valentin is heating up after a slow start at the plate.

I also got some new nicknames for him:

Royce "0-fer" Clayton
Royce "Automatic out" Clayton
The Blackhole

Ummm... unless I read that wrong, that quote says the Clayton is NEEDED in this lineup because of his D.

Yeah it did kind of confuse me too, but I guess I'm so blinded by my hatred for Crop Circles that I wish he was gone. But one can hope :(:

Not to mention it's currently tru what is it like 0-17 or something? I willing to say that he WONT break out of an o-fer slump the way Paulie did

Royce is needed for his defense behind our young pitching staff. So what if he can't hit? He bats 9th and the rest of the offense can more than compensate. I applaud him for his stellar defense and root for him every time he steps up to the plate. I just wish Manuel would pinch hit for him in clutch situations every now and then.

I applaud him for his stellar defense and hope that he does better at the plate. I just wish Manuel would pinch hit for him and in general do other smart managerial things.
