Logic doesn't have this functionality. The closest is using the select next track and select previous track commands (defaults to down and up arrows).

You can do this with a control surface however.

hmmm.. what about a key command to move and reorder a track up/down in the arrange area?

sometimes i feel like logic was made by gods, other times by cavemen...

I must say that isn't a very common need, I'm curious what your workflow is that you require this? If you had a control surface you would essentially have this because you can grab the bass fader, or push the bass track select button. The Euphonix controllers will let you permanently set a fader to the bass track if you want. But for key commands to select specific tracks - I can't say that I've seen any DAW do this.

I'm on Bob's side :)

If you want to re-arrange your track order why don't you just grab the required track and drag it to whichever position you want it in? (that's do-able)

Then you can use select previous/next key command as per Eli's suggestion.

A second keyboard as a controller just aint gonna give you more than your MBP mouse/keyboard in any DAW
Pony up for a controller of any kind,for sure,the Euphonix would be stellar but maybe those tiny Korgs would be worth a look.
