Max Ramirez, Texas League player of the month

Richard Durrett reports that Max Ramirez has been named Texas League player of the month for May.

He also asks if it is time to promote Ramirez, who isn't exactly young for AA, and who is dominating the league.  The problem, of course, is that Taylor Teagarden is already at AAA, and if you want Ramirez and Teagarden both catching regularly (and one would assume that you do), you have to keep them at different levels.

This is, of course, the downside to the accumulating catchers plan the organization has implemented...unlike, say, outfielders, who you can sprinkle among three different positions, or even infielders, who you have some flexibility with, you only play one catcher at a time, which limits how many of them you can really utilize.
