Do we have any idea what Royce Clayton was talking to the umpires about just after Marcum came into the game?

Here’s what was going on:

“Behind home plate, the advertising sign. It was real light and the hitter before, Royce couldn’t see the ball off the bat. I think there’s been some problems in the past around baseball where those signs have to be a certain color. I guess it was off-white. So I guess that sufficed. That was all, but everything’s been approved so there isn’t really anything the umpire can do about that.” — Toronto manager John Gibbons
