They knew Flowers had a problem and yet they let AJ walk. Unbelievable and inexcusable. Not only did the Sox flop without AJ but Flowers never got a fair shot. Wow.

The timeline is key, but it sounds like at the very least the Sox failed to do due diligence on the extent of Flowers' injury before deciding to let AJ go. Major screw-up with major consequences.
