I'll admit I was wrong about Flowers; I thought Tyler would be fine, at least as a short-term stopgap if not reveal himself to be an OK MLB catcher, but this is going to need to be addressed soon. Whether or not you think the Sox are actually capable of doing anything this season, his level of play has been inexcusably bad.
