On Thursday, the 28-year-old made a sign with cardboard and magic markers that thanked “Jon, John & Jonny” for all the good times at the park.

“It’s sad to see them go,” Boeur said.  “But I like to stay positive.”

His sign asked people to honk as they drove by – and many did.

“We have to get the best value that we possibly can with future prospects to rebuilding the team,” he explained.  “Unfortunately this year, it’s a bridge year.”

Where that bridge leads, Boeur admits, is largely out of fans’ hands.

But by standing on a corner and thanking his idols for their hard work, he feels like a vibrant part of the fanbase.
