Questions For Prospect Hounds

What do you guys think of Brenden Ryan and Mark Worrell of the Cardinals?

Brenden is a 25 year old SS who played pretty well for the Cardinals in his first half of a year at the MLB level last year.  His career minor league stats are pretty good but not great.

Mark is 24 year old right handed relief pitcher with no major league experience (The 2008 season is his first on a 40 man roster). His career minor league stats are also pretty good but not great.

What I am thinking is that we might be able to ask the Cardinals for these two to be packaged with Scott Rolen in exchange for Noah Lowry, Dave Roberts, and Rich Aurilia.  The 2008 salaries on both sides of the trade would be almost even (Roberts/Aurilia/Lowry $13.25M vs Rolen/Ryan/Worrell $12.8M).  We all know the Cardinals need starting pitching and Lowry would fill this bill.  I am also thinking the Cardinals might like platooning Dave Roberts with Ryan Ludwick in LF and moving Albert Pujols back to 3B freeing up 1B for Chris Duncan.  Rich Aurilia could then join Scott Spiezio as the Cardinals two reserve infielders and primary pinch hitters.

Would this be a good deal for both teams?
