Unfortunately, A.J. is part of the problem now. He's a liability defensively these days and his lack of hustle is glaring. He even had a poor year calling pitches in 2011, and that used to be one of his strengths.

He is another that is extremely difficult to be dealt with his 5/10 and 6M for this year. That being said at 6M he plays the brunt of the games at catcher this year for the Sox.

He is clearly declining but based on their performances last year I would say that AJ is still a better over all catcher than Flowers. Flowers might have a better arm and hit for more power but he gets hand cuffed easily and let several balls get by him that AJ would have blocked. Right now AJ is the White Sox best catcher.
