Ryan Doumit has two offers: http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2011/11/r ... -soon.html

I wonder if Orioles could be one.....

He hit .303/.353/.477. last year and would be a solid backup to Wieters.

I don't think he would want to come here. There are probably a few teams willing to give him a lot more playing time than the O's.

My thoughts as well. He would be a good fit as a backup but there is a time that will give him more at-bats, and possibly a chance to start.

I think Doumit would go under the "WANT" list rather than the "NEED" list. What good would a backup catcher really do for the Orioles if he only gets...what 100 AB's?

On the list of priorities for the off season a back up catcher is about number 18. Pass.

He signed with the Twins today for a reported 3M.
