One side of Dove Valley is about to get significantly quieter for the next couple weeks.
General Manager Brian Xanders explained today that the personnel department and coaching staff will head out tomorrow for a little time off.
“We’re taking a two-week vacation where we normally have three to four weeks off in July,” Xanders said. “We’re taking it now because we don’t know what the court rulings will be. Then we’re going to basically be on call from the middle of June until early July, when we’ll probably come back in the office no matter what.”
While much is still up in the air, Xanders stressed that the team is ready for whatever system is put in place.
“We’re ready for unrestricted free agency and college free agents and we’re ready to do the draft pick negotiations,” he said. “So really those are the three major things left. Two of them affect the team, because there are two good player pools left in free agency and college free agents.”
