So basically if this kid can't cut it at catcher he's another base clogging, station to station type....supposedly the type of player the Sox are trying to get away from.

Those boarderline fat, base clogging station to station guys...they suck.

If Flowers is a good hitter, I don't care if he is slow footed or not. I don't care if he is a "base clogger" (is there a dumber phrase than that in the game right now?) And I don't care if my 1B can't score from first on a sharply hit double and won't go from 1st to 3rd on most singles.

Lip - I really believe you spend a lot of effort reaching for things to complain about. What Flowers is or isn't, for a guy who says he is worried about today and not the minors, is a surprising issue to get you going.
