FYI, Pedroia, Davis, Wallace, And Leake all provided signed major league jerseys for the silent auction at the preseason banquet. Davis , Leake, Kipnis, Sogard, Romine and other Murphy era players attended the banquet. Not exactly a lack of support for the program. Oh,and by the way Pedroia's jersey went fot $850.00. Also, I believe this was the biggest alumni game turnout in years; and there were a number of Winkles/Brock players who have been there in past years that did not show this year.
: it will be interesting to see how alum relations play out. I know for fact that most the old guys (Brock/Winkles) HATED Murph, but the Murph guys (Pedroia/Ethier) have vowed not to support the program ever again after Murph's ousting.
