I like that they're all very confident in their abilities but at some point you just have to come clean and say "this guy can/can't do it."
the silver lining is that this allows us to keep Baker (albeit on IR) for one more year, we might want him to stick around if Keller is not re-signed.
How does that work when a player is IR'd?
Does it extend his contract, is he a UFA or a RFA?
I think Baker is only signed through 2012.
