​Well Mariners fans, how much do you enjoy Safeco Field? Unfortunately, this is a serious question you have to ask yourself because the Mariners are asking for $180 million in public funding in order to sign a long-term extension at the Sodo park. 


Who knows what's going to happen here. That's a lot of money that needs to be obtained, which is apparently needed to "help with fixes at the ballpark."

​The Safe opened up in 1999 for a third-place Mariners team that had Ken Griffey Jr., Edgar Martinez and Alex Rodriguez on it. Being the first MLB stadium to have a retractable roof gives it it's own place in history. 

Over the last 19 years, however, it has grown with the classic "​Safeco Field" over the right field bleachers, and of course fans love Edgar's Cantina. 


I think I speak for Mariners fans everywhere when I say a resolution to this matter better be made. The Mariners without Safeco Field just doesn't sound right.
