Before Wayne Krivsky had a chance to make the horrible mistake of re-signing Royce Clayton, the Blue Jays beat him to the punch. Marc says:
Ken Rosenthal reports the Blue Jays have agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal with Royce Clayton.
This is the exact transcript of the conversation that ensued here in the office between me and the Crack Technical Staff regarding this story:
CTS: Clayton signed!
RHM: With whom?
CTS: The Blue Jays. $1.5 million.
RHM: Royce Clayton commands $1.5 million?
CTS: Sure. In Canada.
