Max Ramirez/Clay Rapada for Ryan Doumit/Salary?


So hear me out.... I'm sure a few of you saw the story @ MLBTR  Rangers Designate Ramirez & Rapada For Assignment ... the Rangers dumped former uber-prospect C Max Ramirez and LH reliever Clay Rapada to make room on their roster for Brandon Webb and Arthur Rhodes.  How far out would it be in left field for us to offer Ryan Doumit plus about $1.8 mil in salary help for the pair?  We need LH relief and Ramirez could prove a real high upside bridge to Tony Sanchez.  Doumit provides an option for the Rangers who currently list David Murphy at DH, light hitting Craig Gentry at back-up RF, and Moreland/Davis at 1B.  Here's an article discussing Daniel's offseason priorities per the team website ... Ramirez is just 2 years removed from a 19 hr/ 19 double season split amongst AA/AAA where he put up a 1.067 OPS in over 300 PA.    Here's a scouting report on Maximillian circa 2008 http://rangersfarmreport.mlblogs.com/archives/2008/01/prospect_previe_9.html

 

I'm not a trade junkie and I don't know much about the Rangers needs/wants ... just a knee-jerk thought having read the MLBTR article.
