    I wonder...
    ...how many hitters you could have gotten for the price of that scoreboard...

    Precisely.
    Although it is pretty cool.

    If you knew anything about how basebal teams operate
    You would know that field improvements come from an entirely separate part of a budget that has nothing to do with player payroll. They have probably been saving for this for many years.

    So while the Mariners are losing, can we watch a different game?
    I doubt that this was the most important thing for the Mariners to put their time and energy into. How about fielding a team that is better that the Tacoma Rainiers?

    I guess
    it will be easier to see that the score is 1-0 now.

    What a waste
    How about putting some decent players on the field. Is this why they are raising ticket prices 4-10 % next season?

    Will be cool to see!
    I think this will be cool to see in person! Also nice to see that the stadium is getting some upgrades. On the other hand, it is seriously funny to see all the negative angry people in the comments section. No matter what the story, most people try being as negative as they possibley can. To each there own but I would not want to live my life that way! GO M's!

    negative or realistic? i guess if you like paying $150 for an afternoon to watch a team that is unwilling to win, and mediocre at best then go for it!

    Jumbo Scoreboard
    Another misguided move by an organization, thought by it's community to be unable to do anything right.

    1-0
    Now that's funny S4!7! This would sure make it easier to leave a game early when they're behind. I may be able to see it from the parking garage!

    Bad attitude
    Screw all of you and your bad attitude. This new board is an investment in keeping Safeco Field a great place to watch a Mariners game. They put the fan experience at the top of the list. The M's hitting, pitching, and fielding are at the top of another list. It's all good. I'm really looking forward to having the bigger screen. The old ones have seen their better days, and we've needed to improve the technology for some time. It started with the out of town board, then the ribbons, and now the crown jewel.

    Let's not forget
    The best fan experience is winning, that is what brings in the casual fans and the non fans. Granted, certain bells and whistles are needed to bring in revenue. But this move demonstrates the disconnect that the M's have with the fans.
