The Sox short term future at catcher could well be: (a) Josh Phegley, (b) a free agent signing such as Brian McCann or Jarrod Saltalamachia or (c) both. It would not surprise me if Flowers is not on the Sox roster in 2014, if not sooner.
I'm not sure how much you really gain over Flowers with Salty right now. If that's the option, give me the cheaper option, especially if this goes into a more enthusiastic rebuild.
