A Little More on the Werth to Rays Rumor

I briefly mentioned this in the game summary, but here's the tweet from Buster Olney about the rumor:
Jayson Stark and I heard this: Tampa Bay involved in discussions for Jayson Werth. Could be landing spot for his salary, to free up (more)payroll space for a more expensive commodity -- such as Roy Oswalt. The Phillies are working very, very aggressively to move Werth.
Werth is hitting .283/.373/.505 with 13 HR, 50 RBI, and an already career-high 29 doubles. I don't know about you, but adding Werth to the Rays scares me a bit, especially with all those problems popping up for the Yanks. If anything gets done today I will update this post.

What are your thoughts on a Werth to the Rays deal?
