I just remember hearing that Jimenez was up, because Graffy went down with an injury. What actually happened to Clayton? i know i am amazed i dont know this, or actually waited so long to ask, but I really dont care as long as he is not playing.

He caught the unconditional waiver bus about 2 years too late. Though with Royce it was the short bus, so perhaps thats why it took so long to get here

He was given his unconditional release last week, either because (depending on who you believe) he was wearing tennis shoes in the dugout and missed a pinch-hitting assignment, or he didn't.

I know for fact he has been wearing tennis shoes since sometime back in August. He was also sitting out in the bullpen during a game in Toronto. He fielded a foul ball there. Did it flawlessly too, of course.

:gulp:

The important thing is, his momma loves him and he set a fielding record that will probably remain for all time. We know this because those were his parting words.
