Braves Stuck In The Middle

MLB.com's Mark Bowman writes about the Braves' trade deadline situation at the Trade Talk blog.  The Braves are in that gray area between sellers and buyers at six games out.

Bowman says Braves GM Frank Wren isn't finding a reasonable deal for a power-hitting outfielder, but he's also disappointed by the Mark Teixeira market.  Bowman believes the picture will be clearer and the offers better a few weeks from now.  He adds that the Braves would seek a first baseman in a Teixeira trade.  Perhaps James Loney, Casey Kotchman, or Kevin Youkilis would work.

If the Braves buy, Xavier Nady is one possibility.  Bowman wonders if the Bucs could look to reacquire Brent Lillibridge.
