Aramis en Fuego

I've seen the Cubs' 3b Ramirez pop up as a potential acquisition in a couple of threads, but really just in passing. Dude's had a horrible season to date, but he's also had a multi-hit game in 7 of his last 8 starts (and 5 of them all year, prior to this current streak). I'd like to think we could still buy low to add some thump to the lineup, but maybe that's wishful thinking. He'd likely be owed over $20m between this year and next (player option on 2011, club option in 2012), so we'd presumably have to offload at least a little salary to make it work.

What do you think? What would be a fair deal? Is a year and half of Ramirez's performance worth two-and-half of Durty's, if the Cubs are willing to eat a majority of his contract? Would it even be worth relegating Huff to the OF for the rest of the year (and next if he gets the rumoured extension)?
