I'm going to say he finishes season with a higher OPS than AJ
White Sox, Bears, Blackhawks, Spartans
Go Green! Go White!
If Pro is the opposite of Con, what is the opposite of Progress?
I see no reason that won't continue when he gets the chance to play every day. If anything, he still has the chance to get better.
It's actually been widely mentioned in numerous articles that his defense since joining the Sox organization has dramatically improved and that he is a definite upgrade over Pierzynski. His durability might be an issue because a player his size can easily develop knee issues and not everyone is as indestructable as AJ.
Predictions - Starts mediocre, gets hot, goes into a funk, then finishes post all-star break good. Overall season ~ .257 avg. .320 obp 22 HR
Flowers has worked extremely hard on his defense and it has shown throwing out 33% of base runners last year.
When the Sox first got him he was not touted for his defensive abilities. Scouts loved his bat but didnt think he had a position back in 2009. But like I have said he has worked and gotten a lot better behind the plate.
I have to say that I don't have high hopes for Flowers. I'd say ok defense...
.240/.310/.380 with 15 HRs and 55 RBI
Go to video about CTL crew talking about end of Pierzynski era (4th video) and start around 1:30 they just talk about how white sox are very high on Flowers' defense.

Flowers is terrible on defense. I don't need to explain this. Kate Upton isn't hot. I don't need to explain that either. Find me a Martian that thinks Kate Upton is hot and MAYBE, just MAYYYYBBBEEEE, I'll reconsider.
I'M A MONSTER!!!!!!
