Problem: Getting offense at DH and catcher.
Solution: It’s springtime, so plant Flowers.
Why? It’s already just a matter of time before Tyler Flowers arrives to stay in The Show. He’s already off to a decent start at Triple-A Charlotte (translated .472 slugging, .261 TAv), and the South Side needs runs, ranking 27thin MLB in True Average at .243. A.J. Pierzynski (.145 TAv) is cold at the plate and in the walk year of his contract, while Mark Kotsay is a popular bench player, he’s not a starting DH (.127 TAv). Between the DH at-bats against right-handers and the opportunity to sit AJP to get Flowers time behind the plate, the Sox should squeeze in Flowers’ 2010 PECOTA-projected .270 TAv.
