This is fanciful.

Avi got 190 plate appearances in 2014, after 168 in 2013. He couldn't hit and he couldn't field. Moises Sierra got 135 PA and played at least as well.

Flowers was already 28. He had just completed his sixth season with the Sox and he had been terrible for every one of them.

Nobody considered these dog**** players "the Sox young core".
