This is why I never advocated having AJ be the DH except in September when there was a real Catcher (Sept. call-up) on the bench in case of an injury to Flowers. During the other parts of the season, the "emergency" backup Catcher was usually someone who last played the position in the 1990's.
I think I went to this game with you! Was it part of a straight doubleheader and Gavin Floyd's White Sox debut?
