Ah, I see. Hmm...given that the previous paragraph mentions the start of the free agency period, I just took for granted that the author meant last summer. However, after reading it a second time, it does seem a bit odd to use the term "always" in a discussion of the mindset an organization was in for a brief period of time; free agency didn't last very long.
