They should have traded him a few weeks ago.
Now, I doubt they get much for him, but they should just make the best deal they can and get it over with already.
P.S. The Reds may just be keeping Ramon because they want Mes to get as much AAA time in as possible. They may affirmatively want to KEEP him in AAA to get more practice before coming up to the majors. He is quite young.
FWIW, I'm concerned that the Reds may not promote Mes next spring. They may not trust him to handle their precious pitching staff until he is older.
