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.
Was Flowers hurt last November/December? Because AJ didn't sign with Texas until late December. So unless Flowers was hurt at that time this is nothing more than bitching just to bitch.
