For those actually following the Mariners, you know as well as I do that they have been doing horribly and one of the biggest controversies has to be about Safeco Field.
Someone came out anonymously and said that the ball park is the problem which would explain why the Mariners do better at road games than at home.
We’ve been talking about it for years but they really need to move in the fences because of the thick air we have in this area.
Of course the Mariners have denied that there is a problem but we’ve even heard from former Seahawk kicker Josh Brown who said because of the thick air, the ball travels differently.
We are number 28 out of 31 teams for the total amount of runs scored in our own ball park! The only time runs were scored on a regular basis was when steroids were prominent. If the Mariners could play in a ball park similar to the ones they play in on the road, they could win a few more games, and who know, maybe make it to the top.
As a fan, I believe that if there is any way to improve a team and their playing conditions, that it should be done. It’s as simple as that.
