I won't really care that much if he's the backup C in 2014, but I'd be very disappointed if he's the everyday starter. I seriously doubt he is any kind of long-term (or even medium-term) solution, and the Sox should prepare accordingly.
I'm just saying I don't feel he's as bad as people make him out or that he showed last year Everyone was miserable. Again if they sign a guy like Soto to bridge them I wouldn't mind at all. Flowers I think we have seen enough of.
