Free Agency is Underway

Hey Mystics Fans,

Well Monday was a day that Julie and I have been waiting for since early November. We could finally talk to free agents about bringing them here to D.C. to play with the Mystics beginning in 2009. As you can see by the list of unrestricted and restricted free agents, there are quite a few veterans who could help our team out tremendously. As we both have stated consistently, we need to get better at a couple of positions and would like to add depth and leadership to this talented young roster. As a result, we plan to be very active throughout free agency and are excited to verbalize our strategy for bringing a championship to DC with the players.

As the clock struck midnight, we were on the phone and Skype with players and agents. The thing that really strikes a chord with me personally is how well-rounded each of these women are. It's truly a joy to talk to them and we look forward to continuing the dialogue throughout the process leading up to January 5th when hopefully we can sign a couple of free agents.

Please wish us luck as we continue on the journey.

Happy Holidays,
