Scott Hairston isn’t going anywhere

In a world where Reed Johnson is part of a fairly major deal, you figure a guy like the Mets Scott Hairston could go someplace too, but it seems not:

 

Obviously Hairston wouldn’t bring that much in return, but he’s he’s slugging .537, he’s a free agent after the season and the Mets aren’t going anyplace.

I could see not dealing him because nothing good seems to be in the offing because of it, but it would be kinda strange if the Mets are not even shopping him.
