AHern @ SS = Trade Bait????

During yesterday's Norfolk game, Anderson Hernandez played shortstop and batted second (he is hitting over .400). What does this mean for his future? Is he going to be trade-bait? Obviously Reyes is our SS for a long time to come, as he grows into being the tone-setter for the team. Apparently the Mets believe Ahern is not our long-term (or short-term) solution at 2B and he is going to be packaged as a SS, where he has his most value, for a starter. We love his defense and are willing to wait it out to see if he can hit major league pitching, but apparently the organization is not. Well, Reyes-Ahern was a great defensive pairing while it lasted...
