I'd rather see a young cost-controlled player with upside in LF or 1B or DH or where ever they have Viciedo penciled in rather than continue to drop payroll on a guy who can't take a pitch, go the other way, adjust or otherwise improve as a hitter.
At least with Flowers, he's cheap.
And the Sox are already into Viciedo for 13M, thats quite a bit for very little return.
