Braves Still Undecided On Teixeira

Braves third baseman Chipper Jones expects the team to shop Mark Teixeira if they fall out of contention.  However, according to’s Mark Bowman, that decision hasn’t been made yet.

Bowman says the early offers for Teixeira have been inferior to the two draft picks the Braves could receive if Tex walks as a free agent.  Bowman adds that GM Frank Wren hasn’t reached a buy/sell decision with his team, which is 6.5 games out in the NL East.  Wren would like to add an outfielder he controls beyond ’08, but doesn’t like the price for Jason Bay or Xavier Nady.
