With the lack of good hitting catchers out there, he'll probably get both.
I do think A.J. will be back with the Sox in some capacity after he retires.
We really missed the boat on him. He probably would have taken a one year deal with us last year (given he did the same with Texas). While that wouldn't have changed too much last season, things would have been a little more tolerable.
