Tex still an option for 2009?

The Chicago Tribune is speculating that Mark Teixeira may only have one more year in the ATL. The Trib is saying that Braves' officials, not exactly known for their free-spending ways, aren't optimistic they will be able to re-sign Tex after this year.

The O's and the Yanks are seen as the two top bidders. With a lot of big money contracts gone after this year, and with a rebuilding project hopefully fully underway by the end of 2008, would it make sense for the O's to make a run at Tex, knowing his price tag could well be $120M for 6 years?
